Our darling Beatrice got invited this weekend to go to a wedding of a friend. She was very excited about it and had asked for the weekend off, weeks ago. We decided what she was going to wear, Traditional Dress and what to bring Roast Chicken and the gift for the couple, A Dinner Service for 6 persons.
I know Lenah , her friend well, she often visits, she is just on 50 years old, her boyfriend and her decided to get married, after having gone out for a while. She has 2 children, but has never been married before.
It was so much fun teaching Beatrice to use the camera. She has never shot a picture in her life but is always watching me taking photos of everything which has probably made both her and Collen more aware of what happens around them. I always have to show them the photos and they often ask me to print on out for them.
Anyway the big day has come and gone and Beatrice is back home here with us and has graciously allowed me to show you the pictures of the wedding. Only the nice ones, she says, not the shaky ones (blurry). We had to print quite a few copies of most of them lol, as Miss Beatrice is now a famous photographer and everyone wanted their picture taken.
The Bridal Car all bedecked with ribbons and balloons.
The Church Hall is also decorated in pinks
Here comes the bride
Lenah is being escorted up the aisle by her brother
The blessing of the rings
The Lady in red is Grace in traditional Pedi dress, next to her is Martha.
this is Esther and she is in traditional Zulu attire.
Theresa, another friend in traditional Xhosa.
Must ask Beatrice again the names and who they are
but this lady in red , Ntombekhaya, in Traditional Xhosa though different to Theresa in colour and style.
Beatrice is in traditional Xhosa dress, that Lenah, her friend made. Lenah is actually the seamstress that made everyone's dress and her own and the grooms shirt.
