Nigerian wedding in a village in Nigeria

9th June 2012 Reel Life Photos Reel Life Photos
Laura and Martin both live in the UK, but since their respective families are from Nigeria, they decided to have both a cultural wedding in Nigeria and a church wedding in the UK. The village elders all meet together to agree the match and the initial ceremony starts with the key figures in a room discussing the deal, sealing it with gift of beer and biscuits. Then the wedding party sits in an open-sided marquee outside and this information is given to them by the village elders and they conduct a wedding ceremony, which culminates with a gift of a goat from the groom's family, which is then slaughtered and shared between all the families in that village.
