Great Gatsby glam meets Nigerian fusion in North London wedding
As we near the end of the year and to our final wedding of the year, I am reminded of the London wedding we were preparing for last year – Danielle and Martin’s. We met this gorgeous couple at the National Wedding show in February 2016 and from sitting and talking to Danielle, we clicked and I just knew we had to shoot their wedding. Now we love a London wedding, but I knew this one would be spectacular – great Gatsby glam was going to be fused with the traditional vibrancy of a Nigerian and South African wedding. And with 450 (ish) guests, there was guaranteed to be a lot of fun and laughs to be had.
Nova from Nu Bride, snapped this wedding up and featured it on her gorgeous blog earlier this season but now it is our turn to feature it. I can’t wait for you to see the colours, the glitz, and the best Father of the Bride reaction we’ve seen on seeing his daughter for the first time as a bride.
The love and chemistry between Danielle and Martin was magic, just being around them made you smile, there was so much love between them and for them from their family and friends.
We seem to attract very organised brides, Danielle has to be the most hyper organised person I have come across though and her schedule for the day for all those involved was impressive, but when you have so many people to coordinate to be ready in the morning, there’s no surprise. An epic team came together to bring their vision to life:
Planner and coordinator: Pink Whistle Events // Church: St. Edwards the Confessor Roman Catholic Church // Venue: Hendon Hall // Cinematographer: Katie Tulip // Dress: Hampden Brides // Headpiece: Ivory and Co Tiaras // Ring: Eidel Precious // Bridesmaids jewellery: Etsy // Bridal clutch: Accessorize // Shoes: Ted Baker // Makeup: Fiona Nwandu // Hair: Kay and Kompany // Suit: GBG Suits // Bridesmaid dresses: Various // Flower girl outfit: Monsoon // Cake: The Indulgent Sugar Plum // Flowers: Rebecca Joseph Events // Food: King Solomon’s Catering // Invites: Zazzle // Photobooth: Picture Blast // Entertainment: DJ and live Nigerian band
If you’re planning your own London wedding and your wedding photographer is next on your list, then drop us a note as we would love to hear about your plans and how we can work together to capture your big day.
