Adaeze & Gabriel West London Wedding



Adaeze & Gabriel met back in 2021. Shortly after their first date, they knew instantly that they were perfect for each other and meant to be together. Everything fell into place.


Gabriel decided to pop the question. He had the proposal planned to perfection on a hilltop with spectacular views in one of the most romantic cities in the world Rome. 


Just as he was about to propose, someone else beat him to it by proposing to their partner in the exact same spot. As a result, Gabriel decided to propose later back at their hotel.


Fast Forward to December 2022, Adaeze & Gabriel planned the wedding and due to the complexity on the day, they opted for the Wedding Day Management Service with Zohrah Day to take care of the logistics and ensure everything went smoothly. They had a gorgeous ceremony at St Benedict’s Abbey in Ealing followed by the reception at Hilton London Syon Park, they opted for a white and gold theme with the groomsmen in black & ladies in pink.











For the wedding reception, it was no ordinary wedding reception, it was one with a twist. They incorporated some spectacular Nigerian traditions.




One of the Nigerien traditions was for the wedding party to dance into the ballroom and be seated ready to greet Adaeze & Gabriel as they newlyweds to celebrate with their family & friends.


The dances are in order, starting with the bride’s parents, the rest of her family & their friends, followed by the groom’s parents, the rest of his family and their friends. Then the groomsmen and bridesmaids and saving the best for last the bride & groom dance their way into the ballroom.
