Annette & Christopher’s Real Wedding

Annette and Christopher brought two cultures together with their marriage and were lucky enough to celebrate twice – once in Nigeria, and once in the UK.  Their Nigerian wedding was full of colour and excitement, and their UK celebration was a traditional affair featuring a church wedding, a glamorous white dress and an incredible 10 tier wedding cake!


Two Sottero & Midgley Bridal Gowns

For her wedding in Essex Annette tried on between 12 and 20 dresses before finding ‘the one’ and eventually bought two dresses – one for the day time and a separate gown for the evening.  Both dresses that the bride-to-be chose were from Sottero & Midgley; one was purchased in Texas, and the other from Grace and Lace Bridals in Colchester, Essex.  The bride-to-be looked incredible and felt amazing in the gowns that she chose, which were teamed up with super comfortable shoes from Jenny Packham and Your Perfect Day.


Annette chose her sister and sister-in-law to be her bridesmaids and both girls wore a design called America, from the designer Forever Yours.

To perfect her bridal look, Annette had extensions put into her hair two days before the wedding – and the on the morning of, a makeup artist made the bride-to-be look like a princess.  Annette carried a white, silk bouquet as she walked down the aisle that had been created from the flowers used at her sister’s recent wedding.
