Akah and Claire’s Monday wedding was lit. Let’s rewind the best moments.
Nollywood actor (Akah Nnani) and Fashion illustrator (Claire Idera) got married last week in a fun-filled beautiful ceremony that included a customary traditional wedding ceremony and a church wedding. Their white wedding was on a Monday (not Saturday), and that didn’t stop their guests and celeb friends from showing up. Now, let’s have a rewind/ recap of our favourite moments from the #AkahandClaire wedding – what they wore, how they partied and more. Scroll down to see cute photos and videos from their trad and white wedding.
They Broke Nigerian Wedding Traditions
Those two lovebirds broke the tradition that a wedding has to be on a Saturday. They fixed their wedding date on a Monday. They made the idea of a weekday wedding stylish and so much fun that you’ll look forward to more weekday weddings. But that’s not the only way Akah and Claire broke Nigerian wedding traditions – they also had a not–too-tall, not flashy cake that looked simple but beautiful. Their wedding cake was a three-step plain cake.
It was a tasteful, intimate wedding attended by their family, friends, and colleagues. The event exuded an air of a well-planned occasion – from their tasteful venue decoration to the bubbly DJ and the live band that kept the groove up. Rapper, M.I., was also there to add spice to the entertainment – and he did a number with Akah backing up to serenade his love. Who knew Akah had a sweet voice (videos are down below).
What They Wore
Akah Nnani’s bride wore two wedding dresses – one for the wedding ceremony and a second dress for the reception party.

BRIDE’S WEDDING DRESS: Claire’s Cinderella-style wedding gown looked gorgeous on her body, as you can see from the above video. It was a convertible wedding dress with a detachable train attached to the gown’s waist area, which made the skirt area fuller. With the train part on, it was a princess-cut wedding gown style. Without the train (image below), it transformed into a fitted, sheath-style wedding gown that hugs tightly to the contours of her body. The wedding gown features a high-neckline with illusion lace long sleeves. Beneath the sheer illusion lace, the beautiful wedding gown also features a sweetheart cut around the bust.
