Photo Release - Burkinabé wedding



Read the associated release

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.
