Nigerian Traditional Wedding at the Oriental Hotel Lagos | Kemi + Isidore


Early this year, I popped down to Nigeria to photograph Kemi and Isidore’s traditional wedding at the beautiful Oriental Hotel Lagos. The wedding took place just before the fuel subsidy strikes, and I managed to fly back to London with the first flight on the morning the strikes were due to start. Thinking about it later, I would have really loved to stay back a bit and document some of the demonstrations, but then …

Anyway my photographer friend, Babz Bamiro, assisted me on this. It was one of those Ishan weddings (the groom, that is), with plenty of colour, music and dancing. Do hope you love them …
