Nka + Mike The Eleme Traditional Wedding

Nka and Mike are one  incredible couple, funny, super friendly and just awesome, you should remember them here.  Their wedding happened to be my first wedding in the beautiful city of Port Harcourt. Eleme to be precise, a small beautiful and mighty town with the weirdest traffic you can ever imagine. If you’d think Lagos is bad with traffic, try this town. But I absolutely love photographing in new places and anything for my couple .

I love the Eleme’s culture, their tradition and watching the bride changed four times into different colorful attires befitting for a royal princess that she is. I’ve witnessed other cultures bearing gifts for the bride, in Eleme, it’s the other way round.

It’s indeed  a fun and colorful wedding in all it’s cultural glory. But if you’d think you’ve seen enough, just wait for their white wedding, I’m sure you don’t want to miss that.  Thank you Nka and Mike for letting me shared and captured those special days that you hold close to heart.

Here are some image from their traditional wedding. Ahem! Long post alert 😉

 I totally love this color on her

She sneaked off to change again

And lots of more gift for the groom

She finally changed to her fourth and final outfit

Beautiful meal prepared for the couple. I heart the ornament dishes

And then people must fight for the remaining food. Weird but fun

A really long post right, sorry I just don’t know when to stop telling the beautiful story 😀 I hope you like the images as much as I enjoyed shooting them. Be sure to leave them some love too. I always love it when you do you know 😉  Thank you
