OlaDipo 2014

Can you say “Backlog”? Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve had a million and two things lined up one. after. the other. and so I have tons of blogs just itching to go out but not enough time to craft the posts to my standard and satisfaction.

My Sister, Olaitan, got married over the Easter weekend and her wedding was without a doubt the best wedding I have ever been to:

VENUE:  As a true ‘MK Don’ the wedding was held at Double Tree by Hilton in Milton Keynes. We had it all from the delicious chocolate fountain which stole my undivided attention for a solid five minutes, to the photo booth which was accompanied by the most hilarious and befitting props!

AMBIANCE: The Church ceremony was small and intimate accompanied by close friends and family members and the reception hall was perfectly decorated in true Fanimokun moderation. Olaitan is one of the most organised (and bougie) people I know and so the champagne reception accompanied by canapes and lemon meringue were no surprise and neither was the perfect seating plan.

THE DRESS: Olaitan’s Justin Alexander 2014 dress was stunning. A silhouette mermaid silk dress detailed with crystal and satin buttons from the back neckline all the way to through the length of the chapel. The top of the dress was heavily beaded and caught the light with all the sophistication of her classy wedding.

THE SUIT: Dipo brought his A-Game! His navy blue satin finish 3-piece Canali suit was accentuated with an orange corsage and left no doubt that he was the groom.

Below are pictures from the best wedding I’ve ever attended #OlaDipo2014

Ps: Who knew a wedding abroad could be more fun than a wedding in Lagos?
