You may have already heard about the lovely couple who won the Abuja edition of My Big Nigerian Wedding competition that took place as part of the WEDExpo 2015 event - Blessing and George.
This is a contest where winning couples get the wedding of their dreams sponsored to the tune of N15 Million. The lucky winners are rewarded with an all-expense-paid wedding and honeymoon in Abu Dhabi. Their wedding will be planned and co-ordinated by some of the best wedding vendors in the country.
Hundreds of couples entered for the competition when the call for entry was made in October 2014. The voting period was a very exciting one as these couples were pruned down to the Top 50. Voting again resumed for the Top 50 couples and closed finally on 15th March 2015.
Cognito Studios is proud to be one of the vendors who are making the dream of this lovely couple come true. We met with the couple (we were happy to know they were already fans of our work and following our social media platforms) and we planned for a pre wedding shoot along the themes of fun and romance.Blessing and George are almost a case of 'opposites attract', George the cool, calm, collected brother and Blessing gregarious, fun-loving, playful and warm.
As we always do, we planned for photos that showed the couple in their natural element, being themselves and letting the chemistry and connection between them speak through the pictures. We also decided to get creative with selecting locations and one of the scenes required us climbing up a high rock to get a view of the sunset over the Abuja cityscape.
In this post I will share photos from the first location - Maitama Amusement Park Abuja
Blessing & George will be getting married on 28th August 2015 at The Pearl Arena @ Emerald Park in Abuja. Do drop a message for them in the comment section below. Also tell us what you think of the photos.
