Sierra Leone cultural wedding in the Gambia

This is just part of a storybook wedding album, but the actual day could have filled a whole album by itself.  The couple live in the UK , have family living in The Gambia, but also still have many other family members living in Sierra Leone, so it was easier for everyone to hold the cultural wedding in the Gambia.

The couple's children enjoy their free time to play after the traditional cultural wedding ceremony is completed.

Everybody is having a great time, watching the stilt dancer who swirls and twirls with confident agility, and perform a scary show with a real snake, while traditional musicians get us in the mood for dancing too!

The rest of the pages in this storybook show their civil and religious weddings at Coco Ocean Hotel so have separated them out into a different blog post.

This is the final page in their wedding storybook then
