The guests and hosts were all gaily-dressed in blue aso-ebi, the official outfit for the wedding. The groom’s father, a style icon who does not joke with his appearance, did not disappoint his invited guests.

Dressed in wine aso-oke, he walked majestically with his wife of 33 years, Yeye Oladunni Akin-Olugbade, as they both kept heads turning.

The bride’s parent, Fatai Williams, a prominent family in Nigeria, also looked radiant in their outfits, making the wedding a marriage made in heaven.

Lauretta looked gorgeous in her green traditional wedding attire, her smooth skin and face radiating. Dademu also looked stylish in his brown agbada, with a touch of green.
