Before we bow out of the year 2019, we want to take a moment to relive the joyous wedding moments of various celebrities that tied the knot this year. It has been such an incredible year!
We really had everything this year from destination weddings to outdoor weddings! A number of actors, football stars, models, music artists and many more said their vows this year and it was beautiful to see. We certainly can’t forget the no-phone-allowed wedding(pretty sure, you remember this.). Looking back NOW, all we can say is awww.
So in no alphabetical order join us to take a look at the 18 celebrity weddings we will not forget in a hurry. P:S– This list is in alphabetical order and in no way created as a ranking list.
Adekunle Gold & Simi
Earlier in the year, Adekunle Gold and Simi had an intimate wedding ceremony. It was one of those weddings, a lot of their fans had been waiting for. What made this day so special was that it was a no-phone allowed ceremony! Yeah, we have only seen a picture from their wedding and then they blessed us with some clips of their beach wedding in the music video of “Promise”.
We went all the way to Calabar for Adewale Adeleke and Kani‘s traditional wedding. The couple really took the party to Calabar and gave us two traditional weddings to love back to back. So many moments to cherish from this day(see them here). You could also see their beautiful pre-wedding pictures.
