Westminster Town Hall Wedding Photography: What can I say about Naomi and Yemi? I really don’t know where to start…. Let’s try from the start and work our way through and hopefully I share with you this couples personality. Naomi contacted me back in September about her big Nigerian wedding over two days. The first day, which is this blog post, was for the main ceremony and was at the Westminster Town Hall in Marylebone. A small number of close family and friends were present to witness the couple tie the knot.
Before the day I’d met up with the Naomi and Yemi at the venue for the second day of celebrations at the Victoria Park Plaza in Victoria, Central London. They asked me to join them at the food tasting and it was then that I realised that this was going to be fun, a lot of fun. We sat and chatted about the wedding and what they expected from the photos… they wanted the images to reflect the fun and excitement of the day. They wanted lots of natural photos showing guests enjoying themselves but also they wanted some artistic yet classy portraits of themselves. Shortly after our meet up the couple headed to Lagos in Nigeria for the start of the wedding celebrations. I won’t go on about my lost invite, we’ll leave it there 😉
Back to day one of the UK wedding celebrations. For those of you familiar with weddings at Westminster Town Hall, the building has some amazing light but also some rather tricky lighting situation. As I’m use to photographing weddings in all sorts of lighting I adapted as I normally do and quite frankly I nailed it 🙂
After the wedding was over we went outside to get some photos. Both Naomi and Yemi were totally cool with going with my suggestion of having them in the middle of the road for a slow shutter shot… My idea was to get a bus as it went past and the slow shutter speed would give it a cool effect. They were of course totally safe 🙂 Personally I love the shot and I text it over to Naomi that evening… I think they loved it too given her reply.. “We LOVE! You Rock”….
Here’s a few more from the day and keep an eye out for Naomi and Yemi Part 2….. Coming soon…..
