Seun and Toye’s Traditional Nigerian Wedding in Lagos | #TheLoveStory19

Brianna Kozlarek / Wednesday June 12, 2019


There’s a reason why cultural weddings are a hit here at Perfête. As a Nigerian myself, I swoon from ear to ear when we receive a perfectly captured traditional Nigerian wedding. Seun and Toye tied the knot traditionally in Lagos, Nigeria, with a vibrant and colorful Yoruba ceremony while surrounded by those nearest and dearest to their hearts. Their wedding story is particularly heartwarming as this couple had to navigate a really tough time of loss over the planning process. Through thick and thin, the families came together to celebrate this special love and the new bond that has emerged from it. We’re so in love!

One of the first things that caught my eye at #TheLoveStory19 was the wedding fashion. Yes, you guys know I have a superficial side to me (and proud of it!). The couple looked glorious in their complimenting Deola Sagoe Aso-Oke wedding outfits. The bride went for a two-piece blouse and wrapper outfit that had a chic victorian finish to it with the cutest bell sleeves. Talk about a timeless look!

The Fashion

You know that myth about having your bridesmaids look horrible on the wedding day, yup neither do we! Seun had her girls laced to perfection in the prettiest aso-ebi style dresses by Morayo AsoAsiko. The ladies were absolute wedding slayers in their various looks.
