Ethiopian Wedding at the Saint Volodymyr Oakville - Yakob and Shanleigh

This July I had a pleasure to photograph for the first time Ethiopian wedding at Saint Volodymyr Cultural Centre in Oakville. Ethiopian weddings follow both traditional and modern rituals. The families of both the bride and the groom have essential roles in the preparations, as well as on the day of the ceremony. Men don either tuxedos or suits, while the bride wears a white wedding gown. I have tried very tasty and full of flavors Ethiopian food. Ethiopian wedding foods are spicy and largely made up of meats and vegetables. As a wedding photographer, I love to work with different cultures and traditions and explore the new places, and I got very inspired by it. Please take a look at the pictures from the wedding in Saint Volodymyr Cultural Centre in Oakville. If you are looking for the best wedding photographer in Oakville, please contact me, and I will be happy to help to cover your special day.

Alexandra Jakubowska

My name is Alexandra and I love to photograph people in love.

I have been a wedding photographer for the last 10+ years. It is my passion and a dream job. I have studied photography in London, England. I am a wife and a mom of two beautiful girls. I was born in Poland but fell in love with Canada and found my special place in Flamborough (north of Hamilton). I love to travel, dates with my husband, glass of wine and good music. I am a full-time wedding photographer which means I can dedicate myself to my clients seven days a week. I have a great understanding of your "big day" and can guarantee a flexible, discreet and creative approach.
