Of all the brides i've had to work on,i've never been soo excited as i was when Abi contacted me & said i would be travelling to Akure, Ondo State for her wedding. Truth is i love to travel and learn about new places & customs and of course take my brand name to new places.
Abi who doesn't reside in Nigeria didn't get to meet me till 2days before her Big Day. Thank God for the Blackberry,it's been a very wonderful business tool.
So armed with my tools alongside my dear friend Abisoye of BALL EVENTS,who happens to have been her Wedding Planner and Decorator, we hit the road. In my heavily pregnant state and hers as well, speeding was to be done with extreme caution & God was merciful to us. A supposed 4-hour journey became 5hours without a stop-over to Pee(A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.)
Day 2,being an Environmental Saturday had us on the road very early in the morning with me heading to her hotel and guess what happened?? Her hairstylist was nowhere to be seen & didn't call till the bride was well on her way to church(Talk about Unreliable) & so i had the scary challenge of playing that role. I hope i did a good job?
At the end of the day i played the roles of Makeup Artist, Hair Stylist & photographer,yay!! I was in very high spirits(i was going home) and so i had excess energy. So for those who wonder how working outside your base can be, i hope this post gave you a hint of what you should be prepared for.
