After the ring exchange, formal hand over by my parents to @oscarhemanackah’s family, and cake cutting, Uncle Oz (his nickname – feel free to use it when you see him) and I were whisked away for a quick wardrobe change.  The theme of our traditional wedding was “Celebrating Culture – Flamboyantly Nigerian/Ghanaian ” so it was important to me that I celebrate my mom’s culture with my second outfit. Fun fact – My mom is from Ibeno in Akwa-Ibom state and growing up it was also an important culture in our household, even though my dad is yoruba. Second Fun-Fact: Both my second outfit for the traditional wedding and my outfit for our introduction/civil ceremony (the day before) were made by @tojufoyeh. I remember going to fit for the first time at her studio with @thegarmentfactory in tow – We literally gasped as soon as we wore the dresses. As a confession, I barely gave Toju enough time to create one outfit, talk less of two but she pulled it off so seamlessly and with only ONE dress fitting. Her professionalism is unmatched. Her aura is warm and welcoming – which is extremely important when dealing with an anxious bride. It was a flurry of sketches till we arrived at the direction for the “Efik Bride” outfit. Like the previous aso-oke and lace ensemble celebrating my Yoruba heritage, I wanted the interpretation of the “Efik Bride” to a modern take on the old, conventional style. And @tojufoyeh delivered hands down. As usual @urezkulture came through with the coral accessories and staff, while the crowning hair piece was created by @calabar_bridengroom
