We can’t get enough of Olamide & Olanshile’s vintage Ibadan wedding (photos)

Vintage weddings never go out of fashion.

Vintage weddings make what’s old to be new again by capturing the glamour of the ’20s, the rock ‘n roll energy of the ’50s, or the free spirited vibe of the ’70s.

Olamide and Olanshile incorporated the idea into their Ibadan wedding which happened recently and it was super cool.

Their love story as narrated by Olamide:
I have always been a sucker for chubby dudes. (In fact everything chubby; I will probably not kill a roach because it’s chubby). While I was doing my youth service in Ibadan, I got a call for an interview at a media company in Lagos. I was overjoyed because I didn’t want to stay at home after NYSC was over.

I got to Lagos and started having cold feet. I started thinking of everything that could go wrong and why I shouldn’t go for the interview. Thank God for my older friends; in fact, they made sure they left work to come take me to the venue.

While we were in the waiting room, a young chubby man came to tell us that we were soon to be attended to and all I could see was that he didn’t have a ring on that dreaded finger! Till date, I still don’t know why that thought crossed my mind. For Christ sakes, I was there for an interview!

When it was my turn for the interview, I was stunned to discover that the cute chubby man was my interviewer! Jeez! I still don’t know how I passed the interview because I kept thinking of his cute chubby presence and his cute voice still drool every time I hear it

I was hired… I was Single… He was in a relationship… Spoiler!

The one thing I noticed was that he wasn’t a woman wrapper; he had strict policies and abide by them. On his birthday, he was so sad, I mean the guy had sadness written all over him. I was almost forced to ask what the matter was but as “I be employee now and he my boss,” I didn’t want to cross my boundaries. But I was happy I could use his picture on my BBM for some days without my colleagues asking ’sup.*big grin*

I got to know that his girlfriend broke his heart prior to his birthday. I should have been sad but mehn, I wasn’t oh! I started putting extra efforts in my work activities, always going the extra mile, and then one day, he asked me if I would like to see a movie with him! Bingo!!!!!! Mission achieved! Little did I know that all the while, he was “eyeing” me as well!

And the rest they say is history. I met the man of my dreams where I never thought I would and it’s been a beautiful experience so far and I walked down the aisle with him on the 27th of February 2016.

We bring you 21 photos from the wedding!



@Regrann from @olanshile – #ReGram @laheiress: When the groom @olanshile said his bestfriend (@sinosasi) was a woman (a married one), we decided why not? There are no rules that says the bestman should be a man. @olanshile came up with the idea of the best (WO)man and we had @ebenezerruth make this beautiful card requesting for her to be his best (WO)man on his big day. I guess the picture on the right says it all! We totally loved the idea and @sd.schon did an amazing job in making them look good. To think that he made their outfits in a week is totally credible. Well done!

We are always trying to reinvent the #WeddingProgram from boring monotone stationery into elegant #keepsakes. Especially when the groom is a #graphicArtist, we had to come up with something visually stimulating. We also used gold #eyelets for the binding and staggered the pages. #ReGram @laheiress: @ebenezerruth always takes it up a notch every time!! We are totally in love with this wedding programme for #Olamishile2016 The Brief: we want something different something colourful, not big and to reflect the garden/vintage theme and this happened! The couple was totally in love with it at first sight! They indeed aim to please! Well done once again! 😍😍😍 #laheiresshospitalityservices #ebenezerruth #weddingstationery #ibadanweddings #weddings #weddingprogramme #vintage #vintagewedding #weddingdigestnaija #loveweddingsng #bellanaijaweddings #owanbeparries #wedding #print
