Wedding – African Style

Recently, I got to go to my first wedding here.  The two main religions here are Orthodox Christianity and Islam, but this was a Protestant wedding. There is now a small sector of people in this country who are Protestant, but this is generally viewed as a Western religion. Although it wasn’t a wedding of one of the traditional religions, it was still quite different from one we would have in the states. You can view a short video here, and you will notice quickly that there are two brides in the video. When we talked to the bride later, we were blown away that she had absolutely no problem not being the only bride in the room! It seems that it is fairly normal (I guess at least for Protestants) to have two or even three or four weddings at the same time in the same church. This type of wedding was certainly a first for us! Hope you enjoy!
