Bridal Makeover - In far Away Offa!

Hey Pretties,

how have you all been? I guess some of you are wondering where Offa is. Well, its a town in Kwara State and i was there on assignment 2 months ago. the Bride, Rukky happened to be an old secondary school classmate who i last saw in 1997. Thanks to Facebook & Blackberry, we have kept in touch over time.

Sometime last year, she contacted me about being her Makeup Artist for her wedding in Offa, but before plans were underway, she lost her mum (may her Soul Rest in peace). So plans were shifted & the date was finally fixed for September this Year.

Of course, being a Wife & Mother, it was going to be a tricky arrangement, but my Hubby, though not initially in support,gave his blessings & i being ultimately eager to visit somewhere new was too excited,lol.

So,long story short, the journey to Offa,though not convenient saw us getting there at night in a convoy of cars and buses(Nope,i didn't travel by Air).

Rukky, though a moslem is a very trendy young lady and she wanted to look her best, this i could tell from her choice of jewelry & accessories, native attires & Wedding Gown amongst other important things.

Below is her Transformation,lol

Rukky bare & not ashamed

As an amateur photographer, i think this is a Timeless Shot ;)

With all the discoloration covered, we went for a Bronzed look

I should take up photography, i love this shot soo much

Overall, i enjoyed my stay in Offa and i was well catered for by the Bride. My hotel room was worth the stress and i must say i indeed slept well (been a long time that happened).
