Congratulations to Nigerian spoken word poet and actress Titilope Sonuga, who got married two weeks ago in Santorini Greece.

The glowing bride looked stunning on her wedding day in a floor-length peach gown from the 2015 Ti Adora spring collection. She shared the moment with her husband, brand executive Seun Williams, who looked dapper in a deep blue tuxedo. We love the creative color choices in the venue decorations, as well as the uber romantic destination.

Titilope Sonuga has made a significant contribution to the contemporary Nigerian literary scene, including being the first poet to be featured in a presidential inauguration ceremony. Click here to read our lovely interview with Sonuga about her work and life as a poet.

With its picture-perfect beaches and breathtaking scenery, Santorini sounds like the perfect place to enact the romantic experience of a lifetime. As she tells us in a Facebook conversation, the beautiful Greek island was the perfect setting for a special moment shared with friends and family.

“There are memories of our time in Santorini that I will hold in my heart for as long as I live. It was more than I could’ve imagined when we made the gamble of a destination wedding. We created an intimate moment in time with a few friends and family, a fantastic travel experience was the icing on the cake.”

We wish the couple every joy in their marital life!
