What do you get when one of the most stylish young men in Nigeria gets married to a brand manager? – Nothing short of a super stylish, well planned wedding! Noble Igwe and Chioma Otisi’s wedding was exactly that and much more. It is the June wedding that is already being called the most stylish wedding in Lagos, scratch that, Nigeria, ever! It’s also the same wedding that literally broke Instagram this past weekend.
Once upon a time, weddings had a very rigid protocol that included a formulated ceremony, a cocktail reception with the standard first dance, a few boring speeches, the bouquet toss, followed by all-night dancing to the latest Naija jams and ultimately, the couple driving away to face reality. The most important ingredient seemed to be missing from most weddings – the couple’s allure! Then came Noble and Chioma’s wedding to break that jinx and in the process deliver the most stylish wedding we have ever seen out of Nigeria. We could feel the couple’s personality in every aspect of the wedding starting from the invitation cards to the décor down to their outfits and those of the bridal party.
The ceremony took place at Our Saviour Anglican Church, Tafawa Balewa Square while the reception was held at the Landmark Event Centre. Looking ever the lovely, blissful bride, Chioma wore a princess-styled Yemi Kosbiah frock, complete with a cathedral veil that was simply noble, no pun intended. The groom stepped out in a burgundy Mai Atafo suit and a complementary black hat befitting of his status as a legitimate trendsetter. He was accompanied by his equally stylish groomsmen who literally stole the show from the bridesmaids, including best man Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, Adebola Williams, Segun Demuren, and Ernest Danjuma.
The couple were serenaded by their musician friends including Waje who rendered a couple of her hits including the popular “whether na one naira…” tune. It was such a fairy-tale wedding and you could feel the love between the two lovebirds throughout the entire day. It’s obvious that Noble left no stones unturned when it came to creating the most beautiful day possible for his gorgeous bride. Throughout the wedding, he couldn’t hide how elated and fulfilled he was. Chioma on the other hand, was all smiles all night. Like a true modern day Cinderella, she re-entered the reception hall in a bubble, dressed in a mermaid-styled gown as she was specially delivered to her waiting beau. Oh, the love between these two!
We absolutely love that the couple opted for Nigerian designers for their attire. Noble and Chioma just proved to us that you don’t need to do a destination wedding to have a great one, you can make your city the destination by infusing every bit of your taste and personality into the wedding.
