Cynthia & Jide Kola’s #CJLoveStory Nigerian wedding will make your day!

Nigerian wedding photographer, Jide Kola said ‘I Do’ to his beautiful bride, Cynthia a few weeks ago. The couple shared their stunning proposal story in Dubai with us a while back, catch up if you missed it.

Jide and Cynthia both slayed their traditional and white wedding looks; For the traditional wedding, Jide wore a trendy agbada by Twelve19 Styles and Cynthia looked stunning in a monotone asooke look by Shadiat Alasa Oke. For the white wedding, Jide wore a bespoke tux by Taryor Gabriels while Cynthia looked gorgeous in a gown by Yemi Shoyemi. The chemistry they have is quite something!

Their bridal party also came to represent. The groom and his #AgbadaGang put on a show in their co-ordinated agbada’s by Ama Lagos. 

The bride’s company, Beaute Fabrics made the bridesmaids outfit. You know we love a DIY bride any day anytime. 

We were so proud to see so many photographers and industry colleagues come together to celebrate one of their own. A number of the groomsmen are also photographers and we spotted Obi Somto, Emmanuel Oyeleke, Laphy Photography, Bayo Omoboriowo and others.
