I only welcome Nigerian wedding photos from the brides themselves because they can tell the story behind those pictures better than anyone else. I'm not just looking for wedding photos to inspire brides to be I also want to know about the story and planning behind the ceremony because that does a better job of giving brides to be ideas on how to plan their wedding than any picture would.
If you are a Nigerian wedding photographer and wishes to submit a real wedding to NWG to create exposure for your work I recommend you talk to the bride in the photos to come submit the wedding instead so she can provide details you likely can't. And you'll still get the credit you deserve for the photos.
I'm willing to mention your name or business name and include a link to your website or social network business profile if you have one.
Please I don't accept watermark pictures so don't tell your bride to watermark the Nigerian wedding photos she submits.
Note: All vendors who wish to submit their work to be featured on NWG must first create a wedding vendor profile.
You can't submit a wedding but you can submit your photos to be used within relevant articles on NWG.
So you are a newlywed?
Take this opportunity now to put down how you felt during your wedding planning and wedding before you forget the feeling and you're only let with pictures to look at.
Make a "wedding graduate" post.
What's a wedding graduate post about?
Basically you tell the story of your wedding.
For ideas to get started here are some prompts:
Focus on what you feel needs to be told. Everything important you now feel about the planning and the wedding when you look back on it put it on paper.
Fill out the form below with answers to the questions above starting with the name of the groom and your name, wedding venue and the date of your wedding. Please don't include the questions above in your content.
Include credit to your photographer for the wedding photos you'll be including in your story. I don't publish wedding photos with watermarks such as photographer's name written on them. But I'll gladly give the well deserved credit to your wedding photographer. So include his or her name or business name and website link or social media profile link if he or she has one. If he or she doesn't, include his or her local business name and address if possible. Better still, invite him or her to come create a wedding vendor profile here on NWG and I'll link to his or her listing instead.
If a friend or family member took your wedding pictures please state that in your submission.
Include information about your outfits, yours and that of the groom if possible. And include credit to the vendors where possible; give website addresses where possible and where it isn't give local addresses of where you bought what. For example who sewed your wedding dress? Or where did you buy it from if you bought an already made dress? Who was your wedding planner if you had one? Where did you buy your shoes? Etc.
Submit your wedding.
Note: If you already started a wedding diary before your wedding, then make your wedding graduate post here but state it at the end that you have a wedding diary post (s) and include the link(s) to your diary post(s) or the title(s) so that I can edit your diary post(s) to include a link to your wedding graduate post.
Send in your Nigerian wedding photos; the traditional and the white wedding photos.
The traditional wedding is a big of Nigerian weddings. So I insist you include traditional wedding pictures too except there was no dress up and reception for your traditional marriage. And if that's the case state it in your submission.
Create a zip file that contains 20 or more pictures from both wedding that focuses on the emotion of the day and the things that were important to you. I mean your best or favorite wedding pictures of special moments of the traditional wedding and white wedding day. Give the zip file the same title as the real wedding post you sent in so I can easily trace it. Then login to your email address and send the file as attachment to the email address
Or better yet, write your wedding story along with every other details in a document, save it and add it to the zip file with your images and send in everything together.
To create a zip file is easy to do. If you don't know how to create one please read the article, how to create zip files.
Or if there's somewhere you've uploaded at least 30 or more of your wedding pictures such as Facebook, Flickr or another photo sharing network, include the link instead in your post and I'll go there and select the best of your Nigerian wedding photos and include them with your wedding graduate post.
You can only submit one wedding at a time.
TIP: I recommend you write your wedding graduate post in a document offline and save it. Then come back to this page, copy from there and paste into the form below. This is so that incase there is a fluctuation in your Internet connection or some error while submitting your post you don't lose your post and have to start writing from beginning again.
