Award Winning Makeup Artist, Funmi Irantiola's Stylish Wedding - We Love!!!

Funmi suitably pulls off the 'Kim Kardashian' wedding look !!!
The Journey
Award Winning Makeup Artist, Funmi Olurinola (nee Irantiola) of Abeke Makeovers  and Abisoye Olurinola met way back in November 2007 at a gym close to Funmi's home and have been together ever since knowing that they would one day marry each other. So when one of Abisoye's friends who got married in January said to Funmi, "If you don't pick a date nothing would happen" Funmi took the cue right there and said to her then fiance, "Bisoye, I don't know how you want to do it but you better make sure I'm married to you by 11/11/11". Everyone laughed and left it at that until Abisoye reminded her of the statement exactly 5 months after on the 11th of May, when they were in church.
Funmi was completely surprised Abisoye took her seriously, although she admits she liked the idea of the date 11/11/11. As the offering was being collected on the day, Abisoye suggested they sowed a seed towards their wedding day and there and then 11/11/11 was officially set as their wedding date.

Her Wedding Style
Funmi wanted her wedding style to be all about ALL the things she loves and as she absolutely loved Kim Kardashian's wedding style, she borrowed that 'famous' headpiece and made it her own, Lanre Dasilva Ajayi (LDA) made her dress and her hair was by Hair Whisperer (Aislyn Adewale)- Go find out about Aislyn ,she is an American married to a Nigerian, she now lives here in Lagos and she is totally fab!...Will gist you about her later sha...

What I love most about Funmi's wedding style?? She was one BOLD bride!! I remember trying to talk her out of wearing the Kim Kardashian headpiece, when she mentioned it while we were out on a photoshoot with Karen of Big Brother (will show you the shoot once it hits the stands) but Funmi 'stuck to her guns' and went for what she really liked and I have to say she really pulled it off!! The look worked for her and she looked every inch a super gorgeous bride..!
Congratulations once again Mr & Mrs Olurinola. Wishing you both a very happy married life!
