White Lace & Peach Gele | Tuke's Quest

White Lace & Peach Gele

My traditional introduction is around the corner so I decided to have a test shoot with my photographer to understand the lighting in my house and so everything goes smoothly on the day.

One of my make up artist friends wanted to shoot so we ended up making magic with traditional Yoruba attire.
I wanted to collaborate with an Aso Oke vendor but she didn't have the colours I wanted available so I rummaged through my mum's Wardrobe and selected a number of Aso-Oke's that I could pair with existing lace in my cupboard.
I brought out loads of different colour combinations like Royal Blue & Light Blue, Wine & Champagne, White & Fuchsia, etc
The plan was that the White Lace & Coral Gele will be the first of 2/3 looks, however, one look was more than enough for us to understand how best to prepare for the actual intro.
Over the years, I have discovered that shoots don't always go as planned. You just need to make the most of the props, costume and environment.

My make up was done by Gift of Proteus Vanity.

The shoot was scheduled for 12 noon but she got to mine at 11:30am, major thumbs up to her for being super punctual.
The pictures were taken by main G, Shutterwave Photography.
He took the pictures in this post, this post, this post and this post too, isn't he so talented.
 The Coral's belong to my mum and the shoes are the same one I rocked in my latest style post here.
What do you think of the colour combination? Do you already know the sort of colour's you want to rock for your own wedding?
