The Journal for New York City's Top Wedding Photographer Jide Alakija

Tayo + Kike, Grosvenor House Wedding London, UK

I've just returned from a week long and amazing workshop in Glen Rose Texas, called Foundation Workshops. I got the opportunity to meet and work with some of the best documentary photographers on the planet. While it has been a very exhausting week it is one I will never forget as I've made some of the most amazing friends for life through the workshop.

I really love shooting wedding in the United Kingdom. It offers a variation in locations with a mix of the historic and modern. It get the opportunity to really tell some really interesting stories around the different locations that you get to work in. Grosvenor house is nothing short of immaculate. It's a huge venue that can seat up to 600 guests and yet keep it's elegance. Kike and Tayo's wedding was nothing shot of grand. It offered everything from the emotional walk of the bride to her husband, some radiant dresses the bridesmaid were wearing, to the comedy on display from each of the groomsmen. 

Kike and Tayo are very dedicated people towards each other and they take their spirituality very seriously. They've been supporting and attending various Redeem Christian Fellowships around the world so it was no surprise that they would get married in one of the flagship churches in London, Jesus House.

We really had a great time photographing this event, Chad flew down from NYC to second shoot and again he was nothing short of exceptional.
