Wedding at Elim Pentecostal Church Leytonstone and Walthamstow Assembly Hall by Wedding Photographer in Surrey and London – PhotoAlbert

At autumn and winter weddings there’s always a risk of rain. The day Adeola and Juwon got married it absolutely poured down, but it didn’t make any difference to the happy couple. They celebrated their wedding with family and friends with plenty of joy and laughter.

I started off taking pictures of Adeola getting ready for her big day. Both the bride and groom were getting ready at the Packfords Hotel in Woodford Green. I took some shots of Adeola having her make-up applied and wandered around taking photographs of the details like her shoes. I especially like the photograph I took of her flower girls sitting on the edge of the bed. They have their arms around each other and are gazing up in admiration at the four pale pink bridesmaid’s dresses hanging up above them.

Next, it was time to take a photograph of the rings. I decided to submerge them in fizzy water which created sparkling bubbles inside the champagne glass and produced a lovely original photo.

The ceremony was held at the Elim Pentecostal Church in Leytonstone. Just before Adeola left for the church we took some pictures of her looking out of the hotel window. This highlighted the back of her beautiful wedding dress, her hair and veil.

I was able to take more pictures during the wedding ceremony which included guests and of course Adeola and Juwan making their vows and exchanging rings. There is a gorgeous photograph of Adeola and Juwan looking lovingly at each other with the high arches and church windows as a backdrop.

After the ceremony, we moved on to the reception which was at the Walthamstow Assembly Hall. The wedding decorations were incredible, and the hall looked fantastic. There were fresh flowers everywhere and the bride and groom’s table was filled with white orchids.  The 7 tier cake was also a show stopper, topped with Adeola and Juwan’s initials.

It’s an African wedding tradition to pin money on the bride during the first dance. The guests used 1 dollar notes and they had great fun pinning the money onto the bride and both sets of parents, who looked delighted.  Everyone had a great time on the dancefloor and I really enjoyed capturing those moments.

Another photograph I like is the one of Adeola getting ready to throw her wedding bouquet to the girls standing behind her. She looks like she’s concentrating hard to get into someone’s hands.

Finally, it stopped raining and I managed to get some shots of Adeola and Juwan outside the venue. The building’s windows were illuminated, and this gave the photographs a nice romantic feel.

I hope the happy pair enjoy looking at their wedding album and that it brings back treasured memories.
