Nigerian speculative fiction author Wole Talabi tied the knot with his significant other Rocío Vizuete Fernandez this summer. Congrats to the happy couple!

The wedding ceremony took place in Madrid, Spain at El Antiguo Convento de Boadilla del Monte, also known as the old convent of Boadilla del Monte. There was a family introduction on June 15, a party on June 16, and the main ceremony on June 18.

Wole looks dapper in his suit, locally made in Kuala Lumpur. He accessorized with an Ankara tie and cummerbund made in Lagos. Rocío stole the moment, looking divine in her traditional Korean hanbok, custom made in Seoul. The bride and groom looked absolutely stunning amidst the background of dreamy architecture and green pastures.

The ceremony was small and intimate, with 80 guests. However, these 80 guests were from 25 different countries and represented 6 continents (including Australia). It was quite an international wedding!

Rocío Vizuete Fernandez is an Operations Assistant Consultant at the Green Climate Fund, a fund established within the United Nations to assist developing countries in responding to climate change.

Wole Talabi is an engineer, writer, and editor from Nigeria known for his speculative fiction writing. His highly anticipated debut novel Shigidi and the Brass Head of Obalufon (2023) was just released this month. You can preorder here.

Congrats to Talabi and Rocío! May their journey together be filled with love, laughter, and beautiful memories.
