The grooms father, with the blue beaded headgear, leads the wedding couple round the in-laws homestead a couple of times, first in Traditional white wedding dress, then in Traditional gear as above and finally as a way to introduce the couple to eveyone.
The bride leaves her family home and this is now her now home, she can visit her parents but can't really stay there.
THe sad thing about these amazing traditional ceremonies is that this couple's grand children will in all probability not have these ceremonies when they get married, as htese wonderful custom fade or become westernised, so much of this wonderful nations culture get lost, which is really sad.
