• Drum Beats, Love & Laughter: A Beautiful Nigerian Wedding Ceremony

    Today it is an absolute pleasure to share the talented Anushe Low’s photography. Her images are beautiful, timeless and thoughtful. Tomi and Jules had a Nigerian and a traditional church wedding to celebrate their heritage.

    Here, Anushe shares her thoughts on their beautiful Nigerian ceremony:

    Wow what a wedding ceremony that was! I really didn’t know what to expect as I’d never been to a Nigerian wedding before and what a fantastic day it was! Visually it was super colourful and the singing and dancing started almost immediately. Tomilade’s 90-something year old granny danced the most I think! The ladies hosting the ceremony vocalised so nicely all the emotion, love, humor and joy that weddings are about. The day was filled with big headresses, crazy drum beats, a heck of a lot of Nigerian money, laughter, tears and a lot of love. It was enthralling, I absolutely loved it.





































    {Money plays a big part in Nigerian engagement and wedding ceremonies, it is offered to the bride, groom and their families from guests.}























































    {Don’t you think Tomi’s green traditional dress is absolutely stunning against the beautiful green scenery?}

    I’ve never been to a Nigerian wedding but I sure want to now! It looks amazing!

    Here’s a little peek at Tomi and Jules’ church wedding to show you the contrast between their two, beautiful weddings {both with a gorgeous green theme and amazing scenery!}
