Nigerian Wedding at Mövenpick Ibn Battuta Gate Hotel Dubai- Ole and Oru
Ole and Oru had been planning their wedding for 5 years and chose Dubai as their destination. Unfortunately, the morning of their wedding, Dubai witnessed one of the biggest sandstorm in recent history and their beautifully planned wedding had to be moved indoors at the last minute. All their plans were cancelled at the literal 11th hour.
Some quick thinking and planning by the fantastic wedding planner ensured that they still had a fantastic ceremony albeit indoors followed by some crazy Naija style fun dancing at the reception.
I had to change my entire plans with the photographs I had planned as well, but managed to still deliver images to the client which they were very happy with. Being a wedding photographer, taking the stress off the couple in any situation is a very handy trick we learn early into our careers and all of that came into practice at this wedding to ensure that clients had memory of their best day in terms of photographs and not the unfortunate natural events that took place.
