Love Story

Baileys Nigeria and BellaNaija Weddings‘ enchanted event on 10/10/2015 still have us smiling from ear to ear, and we smile even harder when we see the brides-to-be are now married.

We loved meeting the 33 beautiful, accomplished and unique #BBNWonderland brides from all over Nigeria, and we are happy to celebrate with them on their weddings.

#BBNWonderland bride Sheila and Edikan‘s paths started crossing 14 years ago through work and their personal lives, but they didn’t get to meet until over a decade later. Edi sought Sheila out on social media, and within a year, they had started planning their lives together – and as of December 2015, they are One.

The bride Sheila is a creative soul, as a singer, saxophonist, writer and spoken word poet, she performed at her wedding, alongside her husband (she calls him Keys) who played the piano. It was an intimate musical wedding day filled with genuine friends, laughter and tears of joy. She looked divine wearing Nigerian designers – a white low back wedding dresses by James Brendan of JB Living and a custom April by Kunbi reception dress, a prize she won at #BBNWonderland.

The wedding was also beautiful in its diversity as the bride is from Anioma (Delta-Igbo), while Edi is Ibibio from Akwa Ibom.

BellaNaija Weddings and Baileys Nigeria wish #EdiSheila4Ever the best of love and life.

The Love Story The story of Edikan and Sheila dates back 14 years, they didn’t start dating 14 years ago but the first time Edikan heard of Sheila was in 2000 when a good friend of his was head boy at his secondary school and talked a lot about the head girl who was smart and socially inept. Edikan showed up at Sheila’s school a few times hoping to meet this Sheila girl that was helpful but never got to meet her.

Over the next 14 years, Edikan would come across Sheila’s rarely updated blog, meet mutual friends who would mention her, work on a project where a certain Sheila was offering backend support, show up at a video shoot for a mutual friend where a supposed Sheila bailed last second so he never got to meet her.

In September 2014, Sheila showed up on Edikan’s Instagram explore page and for some reason she stuck out like a sore thumb. Without giving it much thought, he went through all her pictures at the time as she was also promoting a few events that she was scheduled to perform as a spoken word artist.

By November 2014, after weeks of trying to get Sheila’s attention on Instagram, Edikan reactivated his Facebook account just to search for her. When Sheila accepted his friend request, he then felt a need to let her know why he was ‘showing up’ everywhere so he sent a message that said, “Pardon my cyber stalking ways. I find you really interesting”.

Has "Telenovela" star Eva Longoria already decided on beach wedding dresses online designer, BFF Victoria Beckam?

"I don't know," revealed the actress in an interview published in People Magazine.

"I haven't given it one thought, but it is in the news that she is. I haven't even talked to Victoria about it."

On the heels of reported collaboration, the designer's PR seconded this statement to People remarking, "Victoria Beckham does not produce vintage wedding dresses australia and has no current plans to expand the collection to include bridal wear."

Longoria has been married twice before, to actor Tyler Christopher and basketball player Tony Parker.

Since she has been wed before, the actress revealed that she would be perfectly okay with just running off and getting married with Baston, without all the fuss surrounding a large wedding.

During an appearance on "The Wendy Williams Show," Longoria remarked, "I'm advocating for eloping. I don't know if I'm going to get away with that though."

"I had no memory of meeting him the first time, but we had immediate sparks," revealed Longoria of her fiancé to People.

The second time she met Baston, she says, "It was like the cliché angels singing and there was a glow around him and it was immediate chemistry."

Baston is a father of three children.

"I want to yell from the highest mountaintop about everything that goes on with us because I'm so happy and excited to be with a person as kind as Pepe is," revealed Longoria of the duo's relationship.

"He is probably one of the first man I've dated that has been older and established and, basically, a grown-up. It is so nice to be arm-in-arm with someone who is your equal," the actress and businesswoman remarked.

"Telenovela" airs Mondays at 8:30 p.m. EST on NBC.

Frank Lampard's tearful wedding speech

Frank Lampard gave an emotional wedding speech saying he wished his mum had lived to meet Christine Bleakley.

The pair met at the Daily Mirror's Pride of Britain Awards six years.

And after being introduced to each other by former Mirror editor Piers Morgan they fell in love.

Now in his latest column for the Mail, Piers recalled Frank's speech that had everyone including the groom, in tears.

His mum Pat died in 2008.

He said: "As you all know, I was a mummy’s boy.

"My biggest regret is Mum died before she ever got to meet Christine because they’re so similar, like two peas from the same pod."

Christine Bleakley and Frank Lampard leave after their wedding at St Paul's Church in Knightsbridge

We hope Frank and Christine's marriage lasts longer than the other couple that Piers played cupid for at the awards - Sir Paul McCartney and Heather Mills.

The former Chelsea and England midfielder, 37, and TV host Christine, 36, partied until 4am with a host of celebrity pals after tying the knot.

But before they tucked into a slap-up five-course dinner at posh venue The Arts Club in Mayfair, Central London, Frank made his touching speech .

Guests later moved to the basement for a boozy 10-hour bash, where Ed Sheeran played two sets.

At one point Frank, who now plays for New York City, leapt on stage for a duet of Westlife’s Flying Without Wings.

A source said: “Frank is normally quite shy but he couldn’t pass up the chance to sing with Ed. It was very light hearted, great fun and his friends and Christine loved it.”

Before they wed Christine revealed they were planning a “good old-fashioned knees-up”.

Speaking today on TV, guest Piers said he warned him Christine was “out of his league” when they met at the Awards in 2009.

“Christine came into the bar and Frank said, ‘Who’s that? She looks a bit of a sort’, which I think is East End for ‘She’s attractive.’

"I said, ‘She’s way above your league, mate,’” he said.

“Anyway, next thing, they get together. He said in his speech he was away playing for England and they spoke every night for four hours and just fell madly in love in one week.”

Other famous faces at the wedding at St Paul’s Church in Knightsbridge, included Phillip Schofield , designer Kelly Hoppen, Ant and Dec and Frank’s ex-teammates John Terry and Didier Drogba.

Christine’s old One Show co-host Adrian Chiles was also there.
