Kunle + Tolu, Chiswick House London Wedding

I find it such a blessing how my business has been supported mainly by a lot of people who I have come to know through my small network of friends. Here is another couple I have gotten to know from afar. Kunle used to live not too far from me when I was living in London and Tolu has been a long admirer of my work. When they decided to get married I had no choice in the matter of whether I was going to shoot their wedding or not as both just felt that we would be the best fit for them.

I've heard a lot about Chiswick house and how beautiful it is, shooting there is a photographers dream. There are so many parts of the house that I really wanted to shoot the couple and their guests on the day. One has to keep remembering that it's not about you, it's about the couple and your vision of their wedding is really where the magic is.

I really really enjoyed covering this wedding with one of my two best friends and colleagues, Jeffrey Osei-Tutu and Segun Olotu. I also got the opportunity of working with the one of the most talented make up artists on the planet, Imelda Ladebo and the amazing hair stylist Adeola Olaosebikan. The event was beautifully coordinated by Debra Mai Events.
