Over the weekend, Chidiogo Akunyili, the daughter of the late NAFDAC boss Dora Akunyili, and her beau Andrew Parr traveled down to her hometown in Anambra State to celebrate her traditional and church wedding ceremonies.
while the ceremony looks chic from the pictures you can tell, our own obsession is the simplicity of her Ankara infused lace white gown if that isn’t chic what is, LOL!
She however went on her Instagram to give us the Tea on her wedding dress inspiration. The dress was designed by Nigerian based designer Wanger Ayu.
The post was captioned as:
“Thank you @wangerayu for making this dream of a dress come to life,” she began in the post, adding, “For as long as I can remember, I have wanted an African touch to my wedding dress. I approached a woman whose work I have admired for years.”
She continued, “We went back and forth, and after few months of deliberations, sketches, mock-ups, fittings, re-fitting, we both came out with a dress that brings a smile to my heart ❤ Can’t wait to share all the shades of this beautiful day with you. #chiansrew
