Kingsley & Lina

On the 6th of April I received an e-mail and the first words were:

My wife and I are planning our 20th wedding anniversary in Rome on the 14th of May. We have about 25 to 35 of our family and friends that will be joining us in Vatican / Rome for the event. Though it’s an anniversary we look forward to an event that will look very much like a mini wedding. It will include a church service, reception, cutting of cake, Photographs, video, bridal makeup, catering, drinks, etc… My wife loves blue, powder blue (with a picture attached so that he would be sure to explain himself properly).


One of the most beautiful thing that has been happening to me for some time is receiving e-mails from the future grooms. Finally men also feel involved in the realization of their event and want to communicate directly with the Wedding Planner.

Just a month

Just over than a month to arrange everything, through very quick e-mail or Whatsapp messages always with crazy schedules because both Kingsley and Lina, his wife, were so busy with their jobs and they were always traveling all around the world. The help of the very nice cousin Anosike Chukwunonso, professor at the Catholic University of Rome and their celebrant, made it possible to communicate with them more quickly.

A perfect organization thanks to professionals who supported me during all the planning.

An amazing day trip in Tuscany, the day before the wedding, for almost all the guests, between walks in Pienza and Montepulciano with also a tasting during the lunch.

May 14 

The day began with a beautiful first meeting in the morning at the Michelangelo Hotel.

We liked each other right away, it seemed that we always knew although we had never seen each other before if not in a zoom call with all the professionals who would have made their event possible.

A sunny and very funny preparation by the Bride Lina and her family, 4 beautiful children, mothers, grandchildren, sisters and friends and then off to the Choir Chapel for their renewal of promises, 20 years of Great Love. A great emotion to see their three daughters (the Bridesmaids), and their son (the Best Man), participate, moved by the joy of the parents who have exchanged truly wonderful promises!

They then moved to what would be their location for the entire day, from brunch to dinner, Hotel de la Ville.

A lunch on one of the most beautiful terraces in Rome, with the sun of this season a bit bizarre already warm, made everything really splendid, and then the photo tour in the centre of Rome, the return to the hotel for all the changes of clothes and the wonderful evening in the Court under the stars.

A fleet of very careful and super coordinated vans made transfers perfect.

Here we are at the dinner. An imperial table for 47 people under the stars of Rome, a runner and blue chiffon ribbons, candles and a wonderful games of Peonies, English Roses and Hydrangea, all accompanied by wonderful lights, music and great saxophones.

We laughed, cried, danced together in a truly magical atmosphere.

Thanks to Kingsley & Lina for bringing us a little bit of your Nigeria, for your sunshine, for your infinite love for life.

It was an immense joy to have been with you, we are waiting for you in Italy.
