#LBFW2021 cancelled. The 2021 edition of London Bridal Fashion Week incorporating White Gallery originally scheduled for April has been cancelled. In a statement, the Director of Bridal, Wendy Adams shared;
The health and safety of our visitors, exhibitors and staff is our priority. While we would have loved to see our community come together again for three days of fashion, buying and bubbly, we believe that April is too soon for this to happen, despite the start of the worldwide vaccination programme. The cancellation of London will allow the team to start preparations for The Harrogate Bridal Show which is due to take place in September, when we hope the situation has vastly improved.

I pray that God continues to be the foundation of our marriage and home. I love you Kunle Kosoko.

This local boy put on a white byc vest and a pair of new lilac pants bought specially for the occasion; I even made sure I was there earlier so I had front row seats. I watched you talk, sing, laugh and dance and Omo I knew that very day that I wanted to be in your life. I knew that day that I wanted my forever to be you. Here we are, all three of us, talking, dancing, singing, laughing and doing this this called life together. With you, I have been blessed with so much, so much, it’s too much to count. I love you Simi. Forever your steward’.
