An “Afro-London” Styled Wedding Photo Shoot Lit by Love

BellaNaija Weddings

Styled Wedding Shoot in London, | BellaNaija Weddings 2015_223A8003The sky loft at Altitude was the setting for this original styled shoot, a unique warehouse loft-style space with remarkable views of the diverse and exciting city of London. With London as the backdrop for this shoot, the team of vendors incorporated colourful fabrics in honour of African culture.

This was achieved with handmade cushions by OTandO Home Interiors using the very finest of Nigerian lace as well as Ankara-print bunting by Afmena Events, celebrating all things African and all things British.

The exposed reclaimed brickwork and wooden floor, provided a striking contrast to the elegant floral and venue design created by Afmena Events. When organising the shoot to promote the venue for the alternative bride seeking a contemporary space for their wedding, Ayo-Elizabeth contacted Afmena Events so that her coordinating expertise could be complimented by their design mastery to create something elegant, modern and quirky.

The bespoke tailored suits were provided by none other than INDIVISUAL by Keye and these matched perfectly the bridal gown supplied by Gbemi Okunlola, Britain’s youngest bridal wear designer and creative director of Alonuko.

With a delicate cake design by QCakes, beautiful natural hairstyling by Dionne Smith and make up by Menoy Transforms, the finishing touches were made complete, perfectly documented and captured by Photography by Abi and Urban Cinematography.

    I’ve been to that venue before one of the best in London you can see everything and I mean everything. Every single monument the city has to offer I didn’t know they accept wedding reception I would have done mine there but the venue has the best view in London

    I really like the decor, but aside from the African-print bunting and the models being of African descent, where is this so called Afro-inspiration?!

    Good concept but very lacking in the so called Afro inspiration. Good video but the images are not so great.

    Wow, what a wonderful wedding ceremony! The bride is so beautiful and her face filled with smile that means happiness! I’m so jealous of the sweet couple’s wedding, congratulations for them!
