I have come across some brides who will tell you that the coffee brown is a ‘No No’ color for their trad wedding but take a look at this wedding of Adedayo and Bimpe beautifully captured by Bolasami Photography. This brown is amazing and Bimpe also combined this color with mustard yellow for her asoebi.
Her ‘suku’ looks beautiful on her . I like the fact that she is able to fully imbibe the Yoruba culture, the rave of the 80′s into this with this simple and amazing ‘suku’ look.
We are so happy to feature Bimpe’s wedding and without saying much, please do get to know a bit about this love duo by reading they story and wishing them the very best as we do here! xx
How We Met ( Bimpe)
We are both from South London but we actually met in Scotland in 2011 at a family/friend affair. It’s so funny because we weren’t each other’s type, but we were instantly attracted to each other. Adedayo thought I was a ‘barbie girl’ which I wasn’t (of course) and I thought he was a very traditional african guy. We exchanged numbers, but due to busy schedules we only kept contact via phone and nothing materialized until April 2012, where we bumped into each other again at a friends house and were reminded of why we were attracted to each other in the 1st place. We went on our first date that month and by May we began dating.
May 2013, we went on a romantic trip to Venice to celebrate our 1st year of being together, I genuinely thought he was going to propose to me, because ever since he met me in 2011, he told me that he was going to marry me, but it really was just a romantic getaway, which made our relationship 10 times stronger.
On the 9th of January 2014, we went on a spa date and after a long day, but just before our treatment, Adedayo proposed to me; just as I’d come back into the treatment room from choosing my nail polish for my manicure and pedicure, I remember him walking towards me nervously, as he approached me he slowly went down on his knee at this point it didn’t click to me that he was about to propose, once I realized and he had presented the ring; I didn’t immediately answer; in fact I danced around the room, until he reminded me that I hadn’t given him an answer. OF COURSE THE ANSWER WAS YES.
I ended up with brown and gold, because our favorite colors are brown and yellow, and gold seemed like an elegant color to substitute for yellow as well as compliment the brown.
The highlight of the day was both of my entrances, the 1st with my ‘ore iyawo’ and the second with my hubby. I was so nervous about dancing infront of loads of people but in the actual day I didn’t seem to care, it was just great fun.
My advice to other brides is not to stress too much about the day, enjoy the moment and make sure you smile for your pictures because your pictures will last forever.
