Alozi and Favour’s Wedding, West Norwood, London, UK. Catch more of these photos on Don’s Photography Blog

It’s always a great honour to conduct weddings and this couple were marvellous as were all the guests of course. Being African, they turned up over an hour late, as is the norm, so guests didnt’ arrive until an hour late. In fact some where still arriving when the ceremony was over. It’s an African thing:-) We British will just have to get used to it. Instead of a wedding being just an hour or two, Africans make a whole day of it.
At this wedding there were all the usual things; joy, laughter and tears by the bucket load.

Smiles and style as well.

    Very wonderful photo Don…love the spotlight on the bride! Excellent work!!

  • Hi Gena, thanks my friend. I wanted the viewer to be led immediately to the most important people in the scene and selective colouring seems to work really well for this.

    Nice wedding photo, I was the photographer for my nieces wedding last year ( after she persuaded me to do it as I am ho professional) I was extremely nervous but I enjoyed every minute of it, I was pleased with the end product, most important my niece was over the moon with them

  • It’s a really scary thing to be asked to be the main Photographer, but I’m sure you came up with the goodies on the day. Your niece being over the moon is good evidence. All the best with future projects. Don.

    Love this photo. You have turned a family album shot into a very attractive quality image Don. PS: Are you a minister?

  • Hi Sarnia, Yes I’m also a minister. I left the Royal Navy (Submarines) in 1992 to train for the ministry in the Church of England. Then served my Curacy for six years in St Jude’s Church in Plymouth, thenk onto St Philip’s Weston Mill, Plymouth and now serve the Lord here in St Luke’s Church, London. It’s a great joy to serve my Lord and Master and lead people to Him here.
