This incredible green colour scheme was inspired by the bride's engagement outfit. From the ombre wedding cake to the different bridesmaid dresses and foliage decor, we love every shade! As well as the immense colour there is a perfect blend of families, traditions and cultures, with the groom showing his respect at the speeches using the traditional Nigerian prostration greeting. Plus, an outfit change and money dance.
Trying to please everyone will never work. It's a big day for your family too so it's great to hear their thoughts, but it's also OK if you don't want to do it.
Aside from marrying my best friend, the mix of our families' cultures and traditions made the day incredibly special. From our guests' colourful African outfits and our own outfit change in the evening to the historic Liverpool church, we were married in. We also had elements of our time living in London with a Routemaster bus to ferry guests to the reception.
Ombre Wedding Cake
After the church wedding ceremony, Flick and Will partied hard at The Isla Gladstone Conservatory in Liverpool, filling it with foliage, pure joy and an ombre wedding cake. The two families bonded over music, food and culture, and there isn't a moment or smile captured by About Today Photography that won't make your hearts swell. Check out the little boy on the dance floor picking up all the cash from the money dance.
We wanted our wedding to reflect on ourselves: relaxed, bright and fun. We chose a green colour scheme based on the dress Felicia wore at the proposal but asked the bridesmaids to pick a shade and style that best suited them for their own dresses. We love plants and foliage so opted for that over traditional flower arrangements, with lots of gypsophilas to brighten up the space. Music is a big part of our relationship so we knew we wanted the dancefloor and song selection to be upbeat, adding to the lighthearted vibe of the day.
After all the planning, at some point, you'll hand over the reins and just let things run. Enjoy that time.
Flick and Will did a lot of research on Instagram, checking hashtags for suppliers in the Liverpool and Manchester area. Once they found a few they liked they studied their work to find the best fit for them. They wanted it to be a relaxed, fun and a natural partnership with people who understood what they wanted to achieve.
