Here are pictures from one of the last Nigerian weddings we covered in 2012. The couple are from the Yourba tribe in Nigeria and thus had a very traditional Yoruba wedding.
Both based in the UK, Bukola and Lekan came back home to tie knots. The wedding was indeed very colourful as you will see from the images. It was a special wedding for me to cover as the bride is friends with my wife and it was through this union we landed the gig.
One of the cool things about this wedding was that I knew alot of the guest, at a point I handed my camera to one of the guest so I could get in the picture too, you will find that image down there somewhere. I shot this wedding with very minimum gear and had to do a lot of “moving back” to get my images.
Here are some of the images from the Nigerian Traditional Yourba Wedding (that’s a mouth full) of Bukola and Lekan Shiwoku.
