Nigerian Traditional Wedding – Loyin and Akan

Nigerian traditional weddings aren’t something I photograph often. While I’ve photographed some Ibo ones, this is the first time I’m photographing a Yoruba one. Between sometime mid last year when Loyin first contacted me about her wedding, she went to great effort to make sure I understood procedures and key events of the day.

Anyway, the wedding took place in Nottingham a couple of weeks ago, and of course I did capture all the key moments. Below are a couple of images that made it to the final selection.

These pictures are stunning! I loved the contrast between the B&W and color giving it an editorial tone. The casualness of some of shots really capture the JOY of the occasion. Some pictures of the bride look like a magazine spread! So colorful. Well captured!!

Great Job on these! You really did a fabulous job with making these images pop! There garb lends itself to bold colors and thats just what you captured. Love some of the expressions too. Nice use of off camera flash as well.
