a wedding in Malindi

My cousins' cousin's wedding, held on the Kenyan coast, was an amazing event.

awaiting the groom's arrival


a local father and daughter cycled curiously past the groom's vehicle

and finally the groom emerges!



various ceremonies, involving both sides of the family


everyone taking photographs



the bride's mother welcomes the groom, warning of the hardships and realities of marriage


(I think my cover was blown)

the wedding had a wonderfully diverse mixture of guests






the heat and humidity were challenging, as we waited for the bride
