    Thank you all for the condolences.

    I will now show you some of the images, starting with the Zimbabwean traditional wedding.

    Here is the Cresta Hotel where most of us stayed in Harare.


    Here are the bridesmaids posing in the grounds

    I shall be back, these sizes need to be worked on.

    Re: Zimbabwe wedding

    Here I go trying to share some of the atmosphere of my visit to Zimbabwe and Nigeria.
    I am struggling with images and videos on multiple sources in various sizes and how to put them on here easily.
    Hopefully I can get the chronology right, so I shall start with Zimbabwe and the traditional wedding in Kadoma.

    I shall try and give some background to what is happening and who is who and what is what.
    Here is the Groom and his father arriving....




    And this was the entertainment that greeted them.




    And that's enough for tonight
    I thought I knew more than this until I opened my mouth

    Re: Zimbabwe wedding

    Todays offering is the traditional wedding in Kadoma.
    The Bride and Groom were married in the UK, but after several years thought it time to celebrate with a traditional Zimbabwean wedding, with the negotiation of Bride price or Labola. The following is at her half brother and sisters home, most were taken on smart phones.

    Grandad greeting me.(click on thumbnail)



    Around the back of the house,the dancers do their thing.



    Now a video of the dancers in action, the lady in blue,making all the noise is my missus.



    The big guy in the red hat is 'showering' apparently it's a Nigerian traditional way of thanking the performers.

    Re: Zimbabwe wedding

    Just one more installment today, inside the house the negotiations continue.
    The ladies sit on the floor waiting, the pretty girl is my adopted daugther.



    The men sit on chairs,all waiting while intermediaries take messages to the room next door.



    Father in law passing US dollars for another 'demand'



    While the Nigerian team ponder.



    Grandma or Gogo in Zimbabwe discusses her cut.



    The share for the 2 elder sisters is handed over.



    Gogo is happy with her share.



    Now everybody are 'family' so the introductions begin.
    First 'Sekuru' or Uncle introduces the Zimbabwean side of the family.



    Next the Nigerians introduce their side of the family.



    Now the bride is officially married and returns in Nigerian attire.



    And finally..........me posing as the white guy for the dancers.

    I thought I knew more than this until I opened my mouth
