BLOG SPECIAL! KEMI: MY FIRST BLOG BRIDE
Over the years I’ve developed personal relationships with some of my blog readers, and the first was Kemi. Kemi is such a sweet and pleasant lady, every time I put up a post, she’s swift to drop a comment and give feedback, she’s been a reader since when I blogged with my phone and crappy pictures lol. Kemi got married last month and I wish I was in Nigeria, I would have attended with full force. However her wedding was just beautiful. from her natural hair to her choice of dress, lovely lovely! oh yes and her gunman pose above! baddest!.
I’m going to divide this post into sections: i.e the couple’s story, dress and makeup, hair and bridal party.
Brief intro to the couple: Kemi met her now husband at a cyber cafe in 2007 and have been together for 6 and half years before they got married. (it would be 7yrs in November). I asked her how she knew he was the one, and in her words she said “Truthfully, I never knew he was the one as I felt I was lonely at the time we met, so initially I just went with the flow. Although, my past experiences with men and experiences of others(sisters,aunties,friends etc) has not been the best, so I assumed he was the same. But over the years he has proved my notion wrong and he keeps at it by the day…”
Her hair: Kemi contacted me some weeks before her wedding and asked me to help her get a wig that blended with her natural hair, I had worn one sometime back and she liked it, she sent me pictures of the style she was trying to achieve, but I could not get the hair to her in Nigeria on time. Afterwards she opted to go for another style.
I asked her what inspired her to rock this natural look: and heres what she said “What inspired my hair is the simple fact that my hair is natural as inspired by the delectable Tosin Alabi of Africanism Cosmopolitan (I blush ^.^ lol ) and just wanted something different. Arinola (her wedding planner) is also a natural so she understood why i wanted that. She introduced me to Kemi Lewis who is a natural hair stylist in dolphin estate, ikoyi. After a couple of meetings and phone calls,we decided to do the faux dreadlocks. I think I am the first client that she would make that for but i can tell you for a fact that after my wedding she has been doing it a lot for other ladies. It protects the hair,aids growth and its easy to style”.
Her long dress story! Kemi told me how she got her dress, she said months before the wedding she started window shopping online, stalking bellanaija, Instagram and following a lot of bridal designers lol. She even met with Yemi Osunkoya of Kosibah when he came to Nigeria for the wed expo, they met at the expo and invited her and her husband (then fiancé) to a dinner in maryland,Lagos. They spoke about the dress and kept exchanging emails but she couldn’t engage his services because of the huge tag that accompanied it, hence she moved on and beefed up her search.
Im definitely doin the gun man pose too. So so me. Too cute
She looks beautiful. Everything about her is unique, from the hair to the dress. Congrats on your wedding!
