Say what you want about it, but stories about passionate love romance and affection just never get old.  They have and will always remain one of literature’s favorite tropes, and we never seem to get enough of it. Because really, who doesn’t like to hear a good love story? In many narratives, the culmination of a really good love story is the marriage and the wedding ceremony that announces it and makes it official.

Consequently, Face2Face Africa takes a look at some of most the beautiful and colorful traditional African wedding ceremonies the continent has to offer. We like to warn you, though, that this is the 21st century, so you likely won’t be seeing any pictures that conform to Hollywood’s stereotypes of an African wedding.
