If you love Nigerian weddings, you certainly would love this movie!
The Wedding Party is a 2016 Nigerian Nollywood romantic comedy-drama film, directed by Kemi Adetiba that premiered on 8 September 2016 at TIFF Toronto and on 26 November 2016 at Eko Hotel and Suites in Lagos. The film started showing in cinemas in Nigeria on the 16 December 2016.
The Wedding party follows the shenanigans that go on during the planning of a wedding in Nigeria. Dunni, a 24-year-old art gallery owner and only daughter of her parents, Engineer Bamidele and Mrs. Tinuade Coker, is about to marry the love of her life, IT entrepreneur Dozie, the handsome son of Chief Felix and Lady Obianuju Onwuka.
The couple took a vow of chastity and are looking forward to a groundbreaking first night together as a married couple. Between matchmaking attempts on the bridal train, a wedding planner on a mission to succeed, the unruly behaviour of some ‘village’ guests much to Tinuade’s horror, Dunni’s uncertainty about her new husband’s faithfulness during the time of their courtship, amidst colourful aso-ebi, eclectic music, small chops, and souvenir drama, we begin to wonder whether Dunni and Dozie will get through their wedding reception unscathed.
