The traditional marriage of my good friends, Arimon Samuel and Asio Grace
Driving the girls to pick the envelope... which comes from the groom... telling of how many cows, goats, and shillings he is giving to the bride's family. The girls kept themselves covered, so that none of the groom's family could see who picked up the envelope.
The men were looking for the bride
Here I am in traditional wear
Flittering and fluttering
Waiting to be chosen
Given gifts - a headband for each lady
My good friend Soos
The bride in pink! My beautiful roomie (well, for three more weeks anyway)
50 maids marching!
The grooms family looked me over, but I am not the bride
Here she is - Grace, a stunning beauty
Welcomed by the in-laws
Passing in front of the groom's family
The bride - coming to find her man
She has found him, and pinned him with a cross
Sam and Grace, a lovely couple
The engagement ring
Cutting the cake... the bride has changed again
Sharing cake at the end of a long, ceremonious day!!
