Top Nigerian Wedding: Abdul Abiola + Iduroti Ladele – A Traditional Yoruba wedding

Iduroti and Ladele were featured here after their pre wedding session at the Lagos Marina water front. Its been a long  journey with this couple that has resulted in this beautiful Nigerian Yoruba traditional wedding.

The Son of the late Kudirat Abiola and the Hope ’93 presidential aspirant MKO Abiola, Abdul had this same sweet smile his father had that made many people love him so.

Iduroti was also representative of her father’s ( Chief Ladele ) strict  and time conscious nature. She is the only bride i have photographed who was ready for her wedding a whopping one and a half hours before ceremony time for pictures……..and the pictures? wow!!! Over 2,000 pictures in all and all are great. so i ask. How do i condense 2,000 pictures into two photobooks?

This venue – Fantasy Land Ikoyi was fantastically decorated and my associate photograph was the sensational Faith Wilkie of F8 studios who you can reach on Facebook as Faith Wilkie

We ensured we took every single detail of this day
The Ceremony started here with the arrival of the grooms family While the brides family sat waiting for the traditional prostrations Next came the letter from the Abiola’s to the Ladeles requesting for their daughters hand in marriage ….and while all this went on inside the young groom was outside waiting anxiously that his letter and request is accepted Finally it is and he is asked into the venue O! that smile and the familiarity of it as i recall seeing it the first time as a young man….
He dances in and swings to the beat of the drums Hafsat Abiola was beaming at her beautiful younger brother as he excitedly pranced about in glee. Finally it was “Dobale” time and flat on their faces went the groom and his friends…. After the acceptance of the groom the bride had to be brought to decide if she loved this man who was asking for her hand in marriage and if she wanted to marry him. Almost teary eyed she accepted And she was prayed for and released by her father and led to her husband  The dignitaries were here. Wifes of Governors and deputy governors alike. And the staff of First City Monument Bank were ably represented too.

It was a beautiful day and now i must settle down once again to the business of making this album as beautiful as the couple….whew! This is going to be one tough compilation.
