Isiwat & Wale's Nikkah and Traditional Wedding at Unilag Guesthouse

March 16, 2013

This was an awesome day for so many reasons, not least of all because Wale happens to be my brother in law, so it was fantastic to be able to be involved in his big day. Usually with traditional weddings in Nigeria (and a lot of white weddings too), things are often rushed and I don't get a chance to shoot more than one shot of the bride fully dressed. However, this time Isiwat made sure she got ready early enough so we were able to get some really lovely bridal and couple portraits. The couple started off with the Islamic Nikkah ceremony (my very first!), quick change of clothes and then it was full speed ahead into the Yoruba traditional ceremony. It was definitely a fun day with a fun couple who clearly belong together and I look forward to sharing more images with you from the white wedding soon. Enjoy! 🙂
