We think this series is here to stay… Everything we loved about [insert #WeddingHashtag]¬†ūüôā

#MrandMrsChurch was one Nigerian wedding hashtag we couldn’t ignore. Tayo & Uche Okorie’s “2-in-1” traditional and white wedding, which took place on the 28th of February, 2016¬†was planned by Trendy Bee Events and we remember seeing the pictures and going ‘Awwwww…’.

Here are 10 things we loved about their big day.

Be inspired!

Pre-Wedding: #MrandMrsChurch definitely co-ordinated their wedding well on social media, they even set up an Instagram account (@mrandmrschurch). We also love that their engagement shoot gave an insight into what to expect on their big day.

Bride’s¬†Glam Squad: Who is that ?

Uche: The groom, I have got a gift for my wife !

Tayo: I also have a special gift for my husband

Both: Thank You! Wow, it looks so good (Prayer)…¬†¬†Lord lead Us through this…

The Outdoor Ceremony: We absolutely love that¬†they had an outdoor wedding ceremony and the Welcome Centre Garden, Lagos was perfect for the event. There’s just something so beautiful about outdoor ceremonies – so serene, pure, and green. We also loved the cute umbrellas to keep the couple and their guests safe from ‘Lagos sun’… so thoughtful.

Reception Time: The bride’s niece had the very serious responsibility of letting everyone know it was party time aka time to head to the reception.

Wedding Guest Entertainment: The saxophonist in a bubble entertained guests as their names were checked against the guest list. So innovative and unique.

The Decor by BTG Decor was amazing

The Cake & Candy Station: We loved their very unconventional (at least for a Nigerian wedding) white wedding cake by Rum n Passion.

Also, our vendor РSweet Cravings Desserts nailed the candy station. We love how it blends in with the decor.

The Guest¬†Board:¬†We’ve noticed that a lot of Nigerian couples have been going for guest boards rather than guest books and we love it. Tayo & Uche’s wedding guest board created by BTG Decor was simple and sophisticated, just how we like it. ūüôā

The bride’s snapback¬†cap:¬†For a wedding that looked so posh, modern, prim and proper, this gave us some personality ¬†and character, which we absolutely loved.

We loved everything about #MrandMrsChurch’s big day. From the bride’s hair by TasalaHQ, her makeup by FacesbyLabisi, her gown by April by Kunbi, her ‘Mrs Okorie’ snapback¬†cap to the asoebi, their traditional outfits, candy station, decor, and so much more.¬† This wedding looked very well organised and we can easily see Nigerian couples being inspired by a lot of elements from their wedding.
