Nigerian pre-wedding party in Budapest
I had the opportunity to shoot a Nigerian pre-wedding ceremony and party in Ádám Villa, Budapest. In Nigeria, weddings are much more than the celebration of joining the lives of two people. It is more about two entire families join together as one by full of bright colours, tribal esque music, and ancient traditions.
Nigerian couples often have two weddings, with a cultural wedding followed by a religious ceremony that is often more western in nature. These ceremonies are held days apart.
They exchange gifts with one another and the bride’s family will present the potential groom with a list for what he will need to give to the family in order for them to accept an engagement.
