At The Classy Trad. Wedding/ Engagement Ceremony Of Shade Adenike Kester & Saheed Babatunde Odofin In LAGOS

It was a glorious day for the Kester and Odofin families in Lagos. Both are big families in the Ajiran area of Lagos. They are Land owning families. On Saturday 26th March 2022 the 2 families hosted the traditional Wedding/Engagement ceremony of their children: Shade and Saheed.


The colourful wedding was held at Royal Oaks Event Centre, at km 14, Lekki Epe Expressway, by Chisco, after Enyo filling Station Ikate, Lagos. The event was filled with Colour, Culture and Glamour. There was no dull moment, as the Yoruba Wedding traditional rites was in full swing throughout.


The Bride who looked radiant in her sparkling attire, with enough smiles to match, complemented her heartthrob, who was very dashing and exuded class like a true Prince Charming that he is. The body language shown by the Couple showed 2 people obviously and truly in love.


As is the norm, the Groom's family began proceedings when they came to pay homage and exchange pleasantries with the family of the bride.


It was after they had been comfortably seated that the Groom and his friends were invited in. He arrived in style with a large entourage (his friends looked nice in their white native and yellow caps).


As soon as he got to his in-laws, like a well-groomed Yoruba man, he prostrated as a sign of respect. He was not alone, his friends joined the great expression of respect which is held very sacredly in the Yoruba culture.


He was then showered with prayers, first by the Kester family and later by his parents and elders of his family.


With a wide smile on his face, no doubt, Saheed was enjoying every moment of the ceremony.


Accompanied by drummers, dancers, friends and family members, the delectable Bride breezed into the venue. Taking one step at a time, gracefully, like a Princess, looking so pretty in her wine native Aso Oke with gold shoe and bag to match, she danced majestically to the centre of the hall. At each step of the way, she was showered with prayers, money and applause.


Prayer is key on occasions like this, and the Bride also got this spiritual fortification aplenty from her parents and members of the Kester family. It was after this session of prayers that she was allowed to identify and join her husband.


This was a union of 2 top families and the evidence was in the number of VIPs at the ceremony. However, it must be said that the groom's father is from a royal family, but he still went round entertaining royal leaders present to ensure that guests were adequately pampered.


It must be said that in terms of planning and execution, this was one classy occasion that will linger in the hearts of many for years.
