Editor’s Note…with Love

Hi BellaNaija Weddings Fam!

My name is Mercy Akamo, editor of BellaNaija Weddings.

You are welcome to our new platform! I’m so excited!

I remember when I was getting married and started searching online for wedding inspiration that spoke to me. It was super difficult. I saw a number of foreign sites that were good but none connected with me.

As a Nigerian, I wanted to get the best of my culture showcased in my outfits especially my traditional look, the right makeup inspiration for my skin tone and I also wanted my groom to look really dapper in every sense of the word?. Oh and my girls, I wanted them to be stylish in their asoebi. I had lots of questions about honeymoon destinations and a whole lot more. Can you tell my mind was buzzing? Now you can see why I am so excited about this new platform?

BellaNaija Weddings has been front and centre of the weddings space in Nigeria and all around Africa for over a decade. Now, I and the entire BN Weddings squad want to invite you into your new home.

Let this platform be your home for the most amazing wedding content and the right level of inspiration you need for your wedding and when you are married – we wish you a joyful and totally blessed union – we will be sharing insightful stories to guide you along the way.

This platform celebrates our culture, beauty and love!

Welcome home!

Mercy Akamo.
