Wedding Planning 101: All The Vendors You Need For Your Nigerian-Zimbabwean Wedding In The U.K.

Updated: Feb 8, 2022

I recently got married! The wedding planning process was a journey and a half. I documented this along the way and released a vlog series, Journey To Forever, on my YouTube channel, which people really loved.

I promised to release two more videos, to help ease your wedding planning. Video 1 is a list of all the vendors that made our wedding ceremonies amazing (See below), with reviews. Video 2 is a Q&A, where I answer all your questions (the deadline to receive questions for this video has now passed). Be sure to subscribe so you don't miss either video!
