A Nigerian-Canadian Romance at Grace Garden Event Place, Lekki | Kunbi & Paul

November 27, 2017
POSTED IN ,

The reason I love photographing weddings is because I'm a hopeless hopeful romantic and I am absolutely in love with LOVE. Every time I am fortunate to photograph a couple in love - my heart wells with joy, excitement and a prayer that they will always remember why they chose to get married in the first place. Love is truly a beautiful gift and I believe the luckiest people in the world get to fall in love with their best friend over and over again.

Enter Kunbi and Paul, who are pretty much my perfect kind of couple. The way they feel about each other is written all over their faces and honestly I felt blessed to be part of their special day. Paul looks at Kunbi like she's the answer to a question he's been searching for and the way Kunbi beamed at Paul all day long, there's no doubt that she found who she was looking for. #blessed

Paul and his family are Canadian, so the whole #naijawedding scene is pretty new to them but they were such great sports completely throwing themselves into the Yoruba traditional wedding ceremony and it was an awesome day with lots of love, joy and of course dancing. #weliketoparty Actually, I think Kunbi may win the WOP #DancingQueen award this year - this was one bride who came to have a great time and she truly was an absolute joy to photograph. #weloveussomeKunbi

Kunbi and Paul - thank you sooooo much for choosing me to document this chapter of your love story. I pray you continue to laugh, love and grow together and that married life is everything you want it to be and more. One down, one to go! God bless you lots. xxx
