An Amazing Indian and Nigerian Wedding – Lots of colour, amazing food and a very relaxed vibe…. that’s how I described Laavanya and Ken’s wedding reception when I got home and shared the story of the day. The couple were officially married the week before so my job was to capture the reception celebrations which was held at the Radisson Blu Hotel near Bond Street.
I’ve had the pleasure of photographing many Indian weddings and a few Nigerian weddings and to see both colourful and vibrant cultures combine was really very cool.
Laavanya contacted me only a few weeks ago and luckily enough I was free, so we managed to meet up only a few days before the wedding to get to know each other. They wanted some really cool photos of them together and asked me to get lots of photos of their guests enjoying themselves.
I arrived early with my assistant Chuck to the Hotel, which is situated about 5 minutes from Bond Street in Central London… the room was still in the process of being ‘done’ up so we grabbed a coffee and chilled for a while. After a short coffee break, by the way most Wedding Photographers are addicted to coffee… well that’s what I tell myself, anyway after the short break we went up to see Laavanya….
After getting some photos of the couple together, I went back downstairs to wait for them to make their entrance.
It was a lovely evening, which ended for me just after Laavanya, and her girls did the most amazing dance for Ken.
I hope you enjoy the small selection of photos from the time I spent with the couple at their wedding reception at the Radisson Blu in Portman Square…
