“The wedding ceremony is supposed to take place in my father’s compound,” says Kibet

The concept of traditional weddings is dying out with the normalization and the influx of white weddings. Even while this is going on, there are still some couples who are facing demands to still follow some of their cultural practices in their weddings. Having come from different cultures, Kibet and Imelda, faced the challenge of having to convince their parents to allow them have their wedding in Nairobi as cultural demands dictated that the wedding takes place in Kibet’s father’s compound.

Just how far are you willing to go to comply with cultural demands? We share their photos from their wedding:
