Welcome

Hello,
Welcome to my blog. I am new at this so forgive me. The main reason why I created this page is because I have been sucked into the whole wedding industry with all these wedding websites being sent around and all. There are so many Nigerians living in different parts of the world needing help with their weddings in Nigeria and abroad or need genuine unbiased information. This blog is to provide information and share ideas. I hope I would be able to achieve my aim while educating myself at the same time. My very first post is the world of wedding planning, who are the wedding planners, can they do the work, how do we reach them and how do we get referals about them :)
Based on the research I did here are the ones I have come up with:

1. Funke Bucknor - Zapphaire Events - http://www.zapphaire.com
2. Omolara Akinosho - Just Weddings -http://www.bisidada.com/justweddings/home2.html
3. Gbemisola Adenekan - Omega Events - www.myomegaevents.com
4. Ibidun Ajayi - Elizabeth R - still searching for info
5. Jibola Ponnle - Stencil Events - www.stencilevents.com
6. Yewande Zaccheues - Eventful
7. Duupe Adeniran- Weddings Impeccable - www.weddingplannerworld.com
8. Gina Ojomo - Any Events Plus - www.anyeventsplus.com
More to come, if I missed any out please let me know and if you are a planner or an events services provider out there and would like to be listed please contact me.

I just stumbled on this blog, no bad. I never knew we had this much planners in Nigeria. I have heard of a few and never heard of some, but I believe word of mouth would get referrences. what do you think?

Anonymous said...

That Duupe Adeniran used to have a show on tv sometime ago, i wonder what happened to it. Good job

Aisha said...

Zapphaire, Elizabeth R, Just Weddings, Omega,Eventful and Stencil Events I have heard and read of. I better look into the other then, would let you all know when I find out.

Oh my God, i attended a cousin's wedding in Naija and was surprised at the elegant decor ambiance. The decorator seems to be listed amongst the event planners (Any Events Plus). Loved what i saw!

..............well done Adaure!!!

I know wedding planner magazine. Thanks for commenting on the progress it made the past few months, even if Duupe has sacked those who worked on it with her claiming it was her baby. I be will really glad if she read your comments about when she was doing it alone. There are more vendors that you did not list, and I promise to send them when next I'm blogging. Av a nice day!

Old Friend said...

Good thing Ibidun Ajayi ( Elizabeth R) now has a website as well www.elizabethrevents.com

amaka Nwagu said...

Yeah!Just Weddings is one of the most sought after planners in Naija and she's very creative too...but i think her company is now JWEvents and Just Weddings...Stencils is also very professional,dnt really know the others
anyway you can be sure i'm going to be on ur blog aeveryday,pls keep it up and dnt stop blogging even if ppl dnt comment!

cool blog,i have seen Ibidun Ajayi,funke bucknor&olawumi Buraimoh at work.Olawumi handled Grace Egbagbes's 60th,saw her put things together effortlessly again at an after party and wedding..classytouchventures.com...Checked website but not functioning yet..seems like the event world is getting more competitive

Amy said...

Zapphaire Events 70%... Elizabeth R 15%... others 15%.

Anonymous said...

Zapphaire Events 70%- hustled events hence the factory feel to events... Elizabeth R 15% hired out creativity hence no originality... others 15% this is lagos one person cant get all the jobs, so it all adds up ;-)
cheers!!

Shade said...

You left out No Surprises events.

Very talented events planners, they are what you call Event Architects and if you're a bride or you have an event you think cannot be done in Nigeria then I think you need to try No Surprises

Zapphire,Just Weddings, Elizabeth R... One word- EXPENSIVE

I was reading an article on Funke Bucknor of Zapphire, and she said wedding planners are not for everyone if you cannot afford it.
It placed a dagger in my heart. At the time i was planning my wedding and for that singular notion i stopped my self from calling her.

I shopped around for an alternate wedding planner cos i am a busy bride, with tight schedules to meet at work.. after all the wedding is a one time event, i still need my Job.

I contacted a wedding planner outfit in surulere name TSOULE.
To say they were professional was an understatement. They ensured the same quality i want with just the right price and vendor. I got diligent up to date status report via text and emails.

The reductions/rebates i got off vendors, due to the relationship TsoulEvents had with them, was mind blowing.

The wedding day proper was totaly fantastic with the eagle eye of the Managing Partner Temmie and his lovely wife Jennie showing much passion and authority.

They deserve a good review on your site.

Point of correction, Grace Egbagbe s party on 21st dec 2008 was NOT her 60th birtday party but her usual annual thanksgiving party!
