Title: Burkinabé wedding
Caption: I was honoured to attend the wedding of Othniel’s
brother, David, to Mariam. At a typical Burkinabé wedding, the
bride and the groom are expected to show little emotion – almost
to the point that they seem sad and wish they were somewhere else. I
am told that this is expected of them. The whole day is in their honour
and this is one way to show humility.
