Abby and Ola's Nigerian Wedding in London, England!


I had the honor of photographing Abby and Ola's beautiful Nigerian wedding in London, England last weekend!  Nigerian weddings are so much fun as the colors and the pageantry are just amazing!  Abby and Ola looked stunning and all of their guests had a GREAT time!  Here are just a few highlights that Alycia and I took from the wedding.(We also photographed the traditional Nigerian engagement ceremony the week before and I will blog those soon as well!)

Abby's gorgeous dress and a pretty unique shot of Abby getting her makeup done with the view of the Houses of Parliament in the background!
