A Ugandan Wedding

Last week on the blog we featured Sharon’s Introduction Ceremony, and this week we’re celebrating her wedding!

There’s nothing we like more around here than a good party, and what’s better than celebrating the wedding of our dear Sharon with a whole lot of singing and dancing in fancy dresses with sodas in our hands?

The wedding itself was not unlike the typical wedding with vows and exchanging of rings, but it did include a lot more shimmying, shaking and gospel music than normal. We loved seeing Sharon as a beautiful bride in her wedding dress, and our very own Josephine in her bridesmaid dress, as well as in each of their dress changes throughout the reception, a common tradition here in Uganda.

The reception was an affair to remember as the wedding guests showed their appreciation for the bride and groom through singing, dancing, giving of gifts and speeches. As they cut the cake, sparkling candles shot into the air and the crowd erupted into a chorus of “AY-YAY-YAY-YAY-YAY-YAY!”
