A social community wedding...

Earlier this month Karl and Debbie decided on wedding with a difference.
Karl hails from the USA, and  has been working in the community next to the lodge, and Debbie who hails from Johannesburg, planned on a wedding ceremony combining
a mixture of traditional wedding themes.
A tent was erected near the primary school grounds, and the local community was invited.
Debbie was given away by a local elder, while Karl, the church minister and interpreter waited.
The formal ceremony was followed by an exchange of traditional gifts.
In the back ground food was being prepared for the visitors.
After the ceremony the local danced for the bride and groom and visitors.
There was a great vibe, with much joy and happiness.
