TRADITIONAL XHOSA WEDDING | SOUTH AFRICA

June 29, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Clive and Ntshantsha's traditional South African Xhosa wedding in Port Elizabeth typified the modern trend of Destination weddings, which seek to include elements of  both western and traditional Xhosa customs into their ceremony .

The photographs in this blog highlight a few key aspects from negotiating 'Lebola' which legitimizes the marriage, to the ritual killing of animals( sheep), Makoti bridal wear to the final stage of bride and groom showcasing themselves to the community by walking down the main street.

Most poignantly, it highlights the colourful rhythmic nature and vibrant energy of the Xhosa people and the prevailing communal spirit of 'ubuntu' that lies at the epicenter of these wedding celebrations.
