Monday 21st August: #MarawaLovesKevin

"I Am Blessed" was the theme tune for Marawa & Kevin's first dance at the UK edition of their wedding and that title sums up exactly how I felt to be in attendence.  Their marriage celebrations are a triptych of cities and themes between L.A, Australia and London.  To kick-start the international tour Marawa took the "Blessed" African wedding vibe as inspiration in the Pinterest mood board for the dress code which she circulated with the invites.  The pressure was on!  Luckily my friend Bombe Surprise kitted us out in enough wax cotton prints to cover from head to toe, finished off with Chale "Melanin" socks for my date.  Here is Marawa in her violet look for the night which was swapped for a red lace heart dress later on for the dance and final send off.  Her outfits and the backdrop for the portraits were put together by the deft hands of Rosy Nicholas who Swarovski'ed every rhinestone to Marawas's trailing veil.    
Every detail of the night was epic from the venue of the Barbican Conservatory to the soundsystem selections by NTS to the luxury cake hand-made by Lily Vanilli herself.  I was in love with the spectrum lighting in the disco and the room was wall to wall loved-up vibes.  The happy couple's infectious fun lit up the room even more than the rainbow rig and we all had the best night to remember forever and ever after!!
