WNS: Hey! Where's the Ring?..Coming on an Eagle! Naomi & Dayo's Wedding Pictures & Videos

Today Weddings N Style is bringing something exciting and different. Naomi & Dayo's wedding was a blend of two distinct cultures into one which made it fun and unique.

What do you do if your bestman can't find the wedding ring? Watch the video below and learn a thing or two...

Read the couple's story below and enjoy the pictures and videos.

Naomi's Story 

I met Dayo in 2006. I was schooling in Montgomery College at the time. The first time I met him, I knew there was something special about him. Over the years we continued communicating vie email, call, text, online. We would not see each other for several years till 2011. We (or should I say I) were both busy in doing our own things. Busy with school, professions and so on. When we finally caught up I had just moved back to Maryland from Virginia. And he was in Columbia, MD. That was when we decided to take the relationship seriously. Dayo proposed to me in June 2012 at Copper Canyon Grill in downtown Silver Spring over a romantic dinner for two and I said YES! And the rest is history.

Dayo's Story 

You know, it’s funny -- our first date was in 2006, but we only got into a relationship five years later. For a long time, Naomi was like a blinking light: on one moment, off the next. I couldn’t for the life of me figure out why she was popping in and out of my life, why she didn’t want to take the next step, why it seemed like something was holding her back. One day, out of the blue, Naomi sent me a message pleading for me to call her, and she finally revealed why she had been hesitant with me. (I’m not Cameroonian, obviously!). But I had to ask myself, Why did I tolerate this back-and-forth thing with her when I had never done so with anyone else? Simple: I realized I was truly in love with Naomi. And this time, this light was going to burn steadier and brighter than ever before

WNS: Two Countries, Two Cultures become ONE ... Naomi & Dayo's Traditional Wedding Video

Watch this interesting and lovely mix of two countries and cultures into a wonderfully blended Traditional Wedding Ceremony.

According to Olu, "When you mix rich and unique cultures, the product will be amazing and remarkable. Naomi and Dayo's traditional wedding was a fuse of beautiful cultures strengthened by love. Naomi is from Bamenda, in Northwestern Cameroon and Dayo is Yoruba from Western Nigeria. This was definitely a cultural and beautiful wedding. The bride was stunning and the groom could not help but profess his undying love. This made me choose Banky W's "Till My Dying Day" as my song of choice. I wish Naomi and Dayo a happy married life and I am so grateful that they selected me as their wedding videographer."

Wedding Date: 7/26/2013
Location: Maryland, U.S.A

WNS: Ogechi & Samuel Traditional Wedding Pictures

Ogechi met Sam in her first year at the University of Lagos. This is the story of their proposal according to the bride… I left Nigeria a year later and was so sad to leave Sam behind. The distance put a strain on our relationship and we eventually broke up. A year later Sam called me and we talked about how miserable we both were, and decided to give love another chance. We talked everyday (the calling card company loved me) and grew even closer. I then decided to visit Nigeria in 2009; 5 years later. When I laid my eyes on Sam, it was as though I had never left, and we knew from that point on that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together. Sam joined me 2 years later in 2011, and in December of 2012, he and my sister, Akunna, began planning a surprise proposal. I knew something was going on, but I was so sure I would find out because my sister sucks at surprises. Sam worked and lived 2 hours away and said he couldn’t visit that weekend because of work. I had my extended family in North Carolina for the holidays and really wanted them to finally meet Sam, so I was a little upset that he couldn’t make it. Akunna decided to “cheer” me up by polishing my nails and going out to dinner, but we weren’t sure where to go. Out of the blue, my phone rings, and it was Genevieve, my family friend. She said she was bored and also wanted to hang out-perfect timing! We all decided to have dinner at our favorite Japanese steak house, and surprisingly my brothers also wanted to join us (Akunna, you little planner lol). My brothers never go anywhere with us!!! Upon arrival at the restaurant, I noticed the waitresses were extremely cheesy and friendly. They took us to a private room, saying they had no more room in the main dining area. The room was so dim and I remember asking ‘’where the light was?” lol. A few close friends arrived later and I was surprised to see them there. They simply said they saw us coming in and decided to say hey (nice one sis). Genny was super late and I started blowing up her phone. She later arrived, and before I could start going in on how late she was, I noticed Sam standing right behind her with some flowers (apparently almost everywhere had closed for the holidays, and they were trying to find flowers…I love you Genny). I was in total shock because I didn’t expect to see him there. I immediately began to cry because from then on, I knew I had just been punked. I looked at everyone in the room and was so happy because they were the ones I wanted to share such moment with. Sam immediately got on one knee and asked me to be his wife, and I said YES!

WNS: Ekene & Seun's Church wedding Pics - Part 1


Ekene Odiari and Seun Ajayi met 6 years ago at Planet One, Maryland during Gordon’s Spark re-launch party. Ekene was working with the PR Agency handling the event and Seun was working with the Events Agency. There wasn’t any specific proposal, the two just talked about moving to the next level at some point in their relationship.
For Seun, her simple and down to earth nature, her attitude towards people (cares a lot about people) and wanting to tell her everything first attracted him to her. For Ekene, he was a nice person, caring and God-fearing and he became her best friend always being there for her.
Seun calls her ‘Buba’ while Ekene calls him ‘Boo Boo’ or ‘Babe’. One thing that has kept the couple strong is their ability to take each other the way they are, knowing their strengths and weaknesses. Also they both love cooking.
On June 29, 2013 exactly Six (6) years after they met the bride walked down the aisle in her Mai Atafo wedding gown to be joined to her ‘Boo Boo’ in-front of families and friends at St. Joseph Catholice Church, Oke-Bola Ibadan. The reception followed immediately at the Williamson hall, Oyewole estate with lots of dancing and fun. 
At the beginning of the couple’s wedding program read ‘Today is a special day, where all our hopes and dreams come true. Today is the day that we marry each other’. At the end of the program they wrote ‘This is the start of our sweet, little story. The part where our pages meet and no matter where our tale takes us, our tomorrow story will always read love. And even though we are wonderful as individuals, we are even better together. Our journey of love begins…
Weddings N Style wishes the couple a wonderful journey of love…

WNS: Mitchell and Kaptane's White Wedding in London



Mitchell Oluwatosin Oshodi and Kaptane Abdul Ikoghode met while studying at the University of Warwick in 2006. She was working as a part-time receptionist and Kaptane went to drop off his keys when his tenancy ended. He saw her and began the chase. After six months she agreed to date him on her birthday. 

One day they went for a wedding celebration and Kaptane had dropped a ring in her bag. He then asked her to get something out of the bag for him, when she saw the ring; he got on his knees and asked her to marry him.
For Mitchell she loved his courage because right from the day he saw her, he made it clear that she was the one for him. While for Kaptane, everything about Mitchell was perfect. 
Knowing that they complete each other – vision, ambitions, spirituality and compatibility – is what they love about each other.


On June 22, Mitchell and Kaptane said ‘I DO’ at the Holy Redeemer, Church of England, Days lane Sidcup. The reception followed at Progress Hall, Admiral Seymour Road, Eltham London SE9 1SL.

Styles vary from the simple to the avant garde. The Art Couture collection comprises looks from vintage themes, reminiscent of bygone eras to the modern designer influenced gown

Art Couture this season is full of romantic promise; we see a definite move towards the traditional full skirted gown. Embellished with fine embroidery and beading that gives the gown an air of elegance. Necklines are reminiscent of European royal weddings, high necklines with plummeting backs, or covered illusion tops with a smattering of embellishments. Lace still is in evidence, but now is being used more as detail than an overall fabric, with diaphanous slim gowns that hint to a bygone era.


Colors in the collection are dramatic blacks in sumptuous velvet and satin to soft delicate blush pinks, color is also used in to make statement gowns, but of course always offering the same gowns in all ivory.  

Wedding dresses that are sophisticated and stylish, perfect for any wedding occasion. Whether you are getting married in a castle or a registry office, you will look resplendent in your Art Couture wedding gown.
Wedding dresses that hark back to bygone eras of Hollywood glamour, vintage styling in fantastic laces or taffetas; Art Couture wedding gowns are always different but always perfect. Giant roses embellish simple wedding gowns or luxurious crystal highlight fantastic cuts to flatter your figure and make you look gorgeous in your Art Couture wedding gown.

Art Couture also is offering a range of accessories to make the gowns a one off, from jackets to belts, on top of the changes available to necklines and design details; Art Couture really does offer the bride their own individual design.
