Nigerian Wedding Photography Surrey

Nigerian Wedding Photography Surrey

Northbrook Park is a wedding venue I know very well, but Onu and Dinachi’s was the first Nigerian Wedding Photography Surrey. We spoke at length before the big day about what I could expect from the traditions and how the day would run. Knowing the venue so well certainly helped, and I was also able to make a few recommendations to help capture as much of the day as possible, including travelling with Dinachi and her father on the way to church, and traveling back with the happy couple to Northbrook Park after the ceremony. I love doing this whenever I can, as it ensures I don’t miss a beat and can get some lovely pictures that help connect the story of the day. It was also a real pleasure to have Moritz of Schmittat Photography along for the day to help with photos at All Saints Church and the family groups.

 

a gift for the bride

 

Onu and Dinachi’s Nigerian Wedding Photography Surrey was honestly the most fun I’ve had at a wedding. Their faith was clearly very important to them, as was their love of music. There were so many special moments of laughter during the ceremony, and their infectious joy was felt by all their guests thought the day. I loved how they were able to really enjoy every moment, from greeting guests as they processed out of church, to throwing their hands in the air as they were showered in confetti! I also really enjoyed the tradition of the bridal party and groomsmen dancing their way into the wedding breakfast. Something I’ve been fortunate to photograph a few times since, and a tradition that, provided they’ve got the moves, should definitely be encouraged amongst the bridal party and even your parents.

For more details of my Nigerian Wedding Photography Surrey and Dinachi’s own personal thoughts on their day, and the planning process, check out their feature on The English Wedding Blog.
