20 Nigerian Pre-Wedding Pictures That Will Make You Want To Get Married



Nigerians love weddings.

It’s one thing that comes close to our love for party Jollof because heck, it’s at these weddings they serve us party jollof rice. So we wear our best clothes, make our hair well and essentially look good because if you don’t, the waiter will look at you and pass you when it’s time for food and small chops.

We go to weddings that we’re invited to, weddings that we’re not invited to, weddings we don’t know the couple, weddings we just gate crash. A lot. And we know how to turn up. The highlight of the wedding is the couple because it’s their day and they’ve gone through a lot (of financial deductions and planning wahala) to arrive on this big day. Before the big day, they take pre-wedding pictures which used to be strictly for souvenirs back then but has now become a prerequisite literally.

In the words of Soumen Nath who is a wedding photographer,

A Pre-Wedding shoot captures the love-chemistry of a couple before the actual wedding. After the wedding, familiarity grows and the Love chemistry changes its colours. Obviously, the couple grows more intimate. However, before the wedding, they share a different chemistry. Its more lovey-dovey and they feel and savor each other’s touch and glances more, almost like teenagers. They are raring to explore each other and are very enthusiastic. A Pre-Wedding shoot captures those special feelings and emotions, which will soon be replaced by deeper intimacy and greater acquaintance. Today, Pre Wedding Couple shoot has become almost a mandatory ritual for many couples. Couples scout for locations, and themes for their shoot and want to make it one of the most special events of their wedding. Some couples want to recreate the scene of their courtship days. So they take their photographer to their favourite places, places where they have been on dates with each other or proposed to each other. Some couples want to get their first love letter photographed and preserved for the rest of their life. Some couples simply leave it on the photographer to unleash his creativity and capture their love in a candid way. Pre-Wedding shoots are most often require the couple to pose and each shot has to be pre-conceived, planned, and staged.

That should explain the concept to you. We just love seeing the end product and the beautiful chemistry makes us want to fall in love. Okay, maybe get married for those of us in love.
