#Bride From #Africa 4 #KenyanBride

On Brides From Africa today, I'm showcasing stunning traditional brides from the East African country of Kenya!

Kenya is a popular wedding destination as couples often pair their wedding day with the holiday of a lifetime. The country is famous for the thrills of a luxury safari and the white sandy beaches of the Indian Ocean.

Traditional wedding in Kenya involves varied practices.


Among the Pokot, the groom circles the bride's wrist with a leather wedding band.

Below are photos of NBA star Dirk Nowitzki who recently married his Kenyan bride in a traditional ceremony.

Members of the Samburu tribe cross wooden sticks during the wedding ceremony. The practice symbolizes the marriage will grow deep, have lasting roots, and maintain the strength and natural life force of trees.

Before the official marriage ceremony is performed among the Rendille, the girl's earlobes will be pierced and she will have some tattoos applied to her body.

Let me leave you with this Kenyan proverb - If you laugh at your mother-in-law, you'll get dirt in your eye.

Thank you for visiting. Please leave me a comment.
