Hey there!

I’m here again dishing out amazing DIY tips for your wedding. I believe you will find this especially useful if you want to have a Nigerian court wedding. In other words, this post if for people that want to have a Nigerian marriage certificate.

Congratulations on your engagement! You are considering if you should have a court wedding in Nigeria or not. While a court wedding is not compulsory, I consider it however necessary. The certificate issued is tenable anywhere in the world and gives you legal right on many things pertaining to your spouse and property.


For instance, in Nigeria, court wedding though very important does not come with a lot of extravagant celebration when compared with the reception party following a white wedding.

2. Bride’s make up
3. Groom’s suit
4. Groom’s tie
5. Wedding Rings
6. Parents of the couple
7. Bouquet
8. Bride’s shoes
9. Bride’s accessories
10. Passport photographs
