Traditional weddings only get better when colour meets with culture and class. Akwa Ibom weddings are a hub for the display of our heritage in style, dance, food and language. Our featured couple embodied every bit of our heritage for their traditional wedding with a perfect peach colour to illuminate the occasion. The events of the day emphasised the Ibibio tradition of the Akwa Ibom people, and it is always fascinating to experience our culture even in its slightest form.
The beautiful and radiant Ekemek and Dr Nsemeke Akpan wedded in grand style in March 2021. The couple attended the same high schools, Access High School, Calabar and Jephthah Comprehensive School in PortHarcout, but only started dating after Dr Nsemeke took a trip into her DM, and went on a tour liking all her pictures on Instagram. Their relationship blossomed years after being University graduates and while advancing academically and in their careers. They navigated the ills of a long-distance relationship for years with patience and understanding, until they were able to walk the aisle together with grace and class. The traditional and white wedding ceremony took place in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, a vibrant show of culture, love, excitement and fun. The well-adorned bride and groom have several photos to perfectly capture the atmosphere of their big days.
We are delighted to share in the joy of this union and we wish them an immeasurable amount of marital bliss with a life full of beauty, longevity, laughter and fun, surpassing all they had on their wedding day.
