Nigerian Traditional Wedding : Victoria and Tunji - Wedding Photographer in Virginia, Wedding Photographer in Maryland, Wedding Photographer in Washington DC

Nigerian traditional weddings are absolutely beautiful! The couple looked magnificent in their beautiful Nigerian attire and this made it easier to photograph them. For my non-Nigerian clients, Nigerian couples often have two weddings, then cultural wedding which is also known as the Nigerian traditional wedding and then the usual White wedding ceremony. The Nigerian traditional wedding is an ethnic marriage ceremony where the groom officially goes to ask for the bride’s hand in marriage from her family. The ceremony usually involves the couple and many of their guests putting on Aso-Ebi (Family clothes) to signify the family and also close friends of the family. Check out some of the amazing pictures from the event:
