Photos from a traditional wedding in Nigeria

With this ring, I thee wed...



Bridal beauty

Marriage is not a thing to be taken lightly....I guess this is what their expressions are saying...???

Hot Poundo...I love pounded yam.

Happy people clap your hands!

This must mean something pretty important. When I find out, I will let y'all know

Cold feet?

An uninvited guest?

Dancing feet

This was a small session before the main event, where the bride had her feet washed, after which she danced for everyone present....nice

Sweet music...

I hope you liked the photos. Feel free to comment and share this post with your friends. More photos on our Facebook page.
