The venue of your wedding is a huge factor in its memorability.
We are fast approaching wedding season. Perhaps you want an overseas destination wedding but can’t afford one right now. Do not fret, you can have a beautiful wedding in some places in Lagos.
1. Jaekel House
Located at Railway Compound, Ebute-Metta, Yaba, Lagos, this venue gives the best feel of colonial Nigeria that you will see on Lagos mainland. Jaekel House is perfect if you dream of an outdoor wedding in a lowkey/restricted location. The scene is rustic, as the colonial architecture births a classic retro vibe. There is also a secret garden that is a photographer’s dream for taking wedding pictures and the historic rail car with two seats would be a genius idea for pre-wedding shoots. The venue is also said to be quite affordable compared to the wedding venue price deals we have of late. As at 2017, the venue’s cost was about 150k without decorations. You can easily put a call to them to confirm the current rate. It can comfortably take 300 guests, depending on the style of your decor.
Obviously, outdoor weddings are best in dry season. So, knock yourself out and create a colonial themed wedding with this beautiful destination.
