Beverly & Buki Ayeni got married in Toronto at St. John’s York Mills Anglican Church. After an amazing Nigerian ‘Yoruba’ Engagement Party Friday Night which signified the welcoming of Buki by Beverly’s parents into their family as well as the celebration of their marriage, they had a traditional ceremony on Saturday followed by their reception at the Westin Prince.
We loved the amazing mixture of culture in this wedding. I’ve never seen so much purple. It was so cool to see how the cultures of Nigeria and Jamaica came together mixed in with a bit of British tradition. Their ceremony had readings in english and in ‘èdè Yorùbá’ which is one of the 521 languages spoken in Nigeria (it’s the widest used language in West Africa (thank you Wikipedia)).
Take a look at the Same Day Edit we made for them.
It was so fun to work with out new friend Tara McMullen who took some photos.
We also loved the music from this Same Day Edit. It’s by Luke Huch. The Song is titled Hearts Unfailing and it was our first time using the website TheMusicBed.com which allows us to license independent music for our wedding films. Pretty cool!
