Ghanaian traditional wedding — I do Ghana

Ashanti

Located in central Ghana, this ethnic group begins their traditional marriage with a knocking ceremony (kokooko) where the man and his family go to the woman’s family to ask for their daughter’s hand in marriage. The marriage ceremony takes place right after an agreement. The bride and groom wear colourful attire made from the rich kente cloth. The bride adds other accessories including colourful beads and head decorations.
