We’ve got a fun wedding to share today! Victoria & Sotonte decided their day should reflect their heritage along with their fun personalities, hence their traditional British ceremony and wildly fun Kalabari after-party. All beautifully captured by Pixies in the Cellar, Victoria & Sotonte’s special day captured the beauty of two cultures coming together to celebrate love. Enjoy!

The Couple: Victoria & Sotonte

The Wedding Ceremony: St. Joseph’s Church Harrogate

The Inspiration: “I would describe our wedding as a very simple, elegant and traditional British wedding during the day followed by a chaotic Kalabari party in the evening.”

Vendor Recommendations from the Couple:

“The professionals I would recommend would be Pixies in the Cellar and the staff at Rudding who dealt with a very chaotic wedding trying to co-ordinate two very different cultures and lots of guests and last minute changes but they dealt with everything that was thrown at them with professionalism and a smile. Rudding Park ensured that every detail was perfect and stress free and Pixies in the Cellar captured every moment of our day in a way that reflects who we are as a couple.”
