Froyle Park, a stunning venue for a Colourful Ethnic Wedding


As a wedding photographer I often photograph people who come from different backgrounds and cultures. Kemi and Mike‘s Colourful Ethnic Wedding is a beautiful example of a multicultural wedding, with Kemi’s family originally hailing from Nigeria, while Mike and his family are British.


They really brought both cultures into the mix on the day, starting out with the English traditions and bringing in the Nigerian traditions in waves here and there. Kemi’s western Vera Wang wedding dress and Jimmy Choo shoes were stunning on her, but equally so also was her Nigerian wedding outfit, which she changed into at the end of the night. But let’s start at the beginning.


From Christ Church in Winchester, to Froyle Park


From the start of the day when both Kemi and Mike were getting ready surrounded by their nearest and dearest, it was an emotional affair. Everyone was so happy and in a great celebratory mood! In fact, they had chosen Pharrel Williams’ “Happy” as their marryoke song and everyone seemed to really get into the signing of it.


Kemi and her bridesmaids enjoyed the morning together chatting and laughing and sipping champagne, and it was lovely to be there when Kemi finally put on her stunning dress and her mum walked in just in time to see her. In the meantime, Mike was having a whale of a time preparing at his house and then making his way to Christ Church in Winchester surrounded by his family.


Once Kemi arrived, their wedding ceremony was very emotional, with beautiful contributions, readings and songs from both sides of their families that hardly left a dry eye in the house. It felt like a very personal and intimate celebration, even though there were quite a few family and guests present as is custom in Colourful Ethnic weddings. After the ceremony and some wild confetti throwing, everyone jumped into their cars and made their way to Froyle Park, their lovely wedding reception venue.


A wonderful reception at Froyle Park


Froyle Park, a Jacobean Manor and grounds in the heart of North-East Hampshire in Upper Froyle village is a very romantic wedding venue, and it was an absolute pleasure to be the Froyle Park Wedding Photographer on the day.


After some time out to relax and chat with their families and guests, Kemi and Mike and their closest families danced into the reception hall, as is tradition in Nigerian Weddings, and rang in the afternoon with speeches from friends, family members and of course the groom and best man.


The mood was in tune with the afternoon light – bright, friendly and warm. Everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves and the hours melted into evening before you knew it. Soon Kemi and Mike cut their fabulous cake, danced their hilarious and very funky first dance and disappeared into the night to change into their traditional Nigerian outfits. Once changed, Kemi looked as gorgeous in her Colourful Ethnic Wedding outfit as in her Vera Wang wedding dress and it was a pleasure to see them and their guests enjoy the day and evening so much.


It was such a pleasure to capture Kemi and Mike’s wedding at Froyle Park. It was fun and filled with love and laughter – a wedding right after my own heart.


And with it’s sweeping views, glorious afternoon light and wonderful setting, Froyle Park is a wedding venue where I would love to photograph weddings again. So, if you’re planning your wedding at Froyle Park and are still looking for your wedding photographer, why not drop me a line?
