Here’s all the wedding news you may have missed last week.

Nollywood actor, Gabriel Afolayan and his fiancee, Adebanke had their traditional wedding over the weekend. Catch up if you missed our #GBash2018 feature. The star-studded ceremony held in Ibadan on Thursday, the 5th of April, 2018 and was attended by Banky Wellington and his wife, Adesua Etomi – Wellington, Gbemi Olateru-Olagbegi, MoCheddah, Capt. Tunde Demuren and many others.

We learnt that Nigerian singer and actor, Banky Wellington has a degree in gele studies. Nigerian photographer, Frank Ugah took these pictures of Banky styling his wife, Adesua Etomi‘s gele.

Remember Feyi Marcus-Bello (nee Adesanya) from #NifLovesFey. We’ve now named her the ‘melanin bride‘. These photos from her makeup artiste, D’Artiste by Dodos broke the internet as Feyi looked stunning on her wedding day. We love how regal and natural she looks.

We end with our photo of the week from #EloVie18. Where do we start! It was time for the couples to feed each other; at most Nigerian weddings, the couple would feed each other a slice of cake but Ovie, a Nigerian groom from Delta state decided to switch things up by feeding his bride Starch and Banga soup. According to his post on his Instagram page, “nobody feeds on cake at home, so we had to feed ourselves with the main thing”. See photos from Omoniyi Weddings.

We shared one of the pictures on our Instagram page – @loveweddingsng and the comments came hard and fast.

That’s it for this week. See you next week for more news weekly updates.
