Don’t you just love northern weddings! The nikkai, Fatiha and the whole shabang! Most often, we love to gawk at the beauty of the Northern couple especially the stunning ladies. Their choice of colors are always bright and striking. Do not let us start with their so-so- elegant traditional attire. They always look beauty personified.
Hafsat was such an easy going bride to start with. Much excitement flying around on her pictures that we couldn’t just wait to get them freshly pressed for your rainy weekend. How many college proposal ends up in a happy ending? Not very many I tell you. Well, this college sweethearts weathered the storm and Ibrahim made sure his ‘Yes’ really meant ‘Yes’ when he initially proposed to Hafsat in School. Hafsat strikes me as someone who is very consistent. Not very common we see around. So happy they finally made this work despite all that might have happened in between because finding your one true love is one thing. Making them stay is another!
I’ll just allow you check out the rest of the pictures and a bit of gist from Ammah herself for your inspiration. xx
Hafsat on Her Proposal and Wedding
Ibrahim proposed to me since I was in secondary school. He later went for his masters in the UK. Ibrahim waited for me to finish secondary school after which I went to the UK for my foundation and first year and then later transferred to Abuja. Preparing for my wedding was quite hectic. I planned the wedding all by myself but am glad my brother was on hand to help me with some planning as he organised my dinner event. I had to cancel my bridal shower as the stress was
Wedding prep was very hectic. Dress shopping was an exciting but tiring experience since I was still in school. The cloths and colors were chosen by myself. I wanted bright colors so Blue and Yellow was ideal for my iro and buba for the traditional Kamu. I also loved my peach dress for the grand dinner which happened to be my best event. Style temple in Abuja made that beautiful dress.

My highlight for my wedding was the dance hour. I love dancing so even though I felt exhausted and excited at the same time, I danced my heart out. We had songs like Doro and Skelewu which we danced to. Exciting times.
