Nigeria’s first ever virtual wedding has finally made its debut in the country.
LEADERSHIP gathered the first of such fairs took place recently and was organised by a seasoned wedding planner, Mrs Omolara Akande.
Akande who runs Just Weddings (JW) is also the founder of Association of Professional Party Organisers and Event Managers of Nigeria (APPOEMN) which she founded in 2011.
Speaking with LEADERSHIP at her Lekki office, Lagos recently, Omolara Akande who has over 19 years of professional experience in the industry and has often been referred to as the very first professional wedding planner in Nigeria, explained the reason behind the event. She said, “Let’s get back to the present situation of things. COVID-19 is changing the world as we all know it and being a professional in a world that now needs social distancing, we are looking at evolving, which was why we came up with this”.
‘’People have been planning their wedding and we don’t expect them to just cancel or put off their plans because of the virus, so JW events came up with a virtual wedding fair called the Virtual Wedding Fare”.
“Don’t forget that I am the creative mind behind Wedding Fare, an annual bridal fair which takes place in Lagos, is in its 5th series this year”.
According to her, “The wedding fair is really for people getting married between the year 2020/ 2021 be it a bride-to-be, a wedding/event vendor and anybody who has a passion for the wedding industry”.
“Event vendors will be given a platform to showcase themselves, especially those who have had to go back into the background due to the pandemic; they will now have the opportunity to advertise themselves to prospective clients on a large platform”.
