Amanda and David got married at Polhawn fort on the 26th August 2017, but it wasn’t an ordinary wedding as there was 3 very special ceremonies.
The first ceremony, inside Polhawn, was a traditional Ghanaian ceremony, which was beautiful and energetic, with the families going through negotiations and offerings. After 30 minutes the groom was brought out with family members who danced all their way into the room.
Once the groom had spoken with the bride’s family, there was a line of woman brought out and David had to say which one was his bride, thankfully David picked Amanda otherwise it could of really been a short day!
The remainder of the first ceremony included rings and their hands being tied together to signify their marriage.
The second ceremony was the shortest but probably the most important as it was the only legal ceremony of the day, it was conducted in private with just the witnesses present.
The third ceremony took place outside in Polhawn Forts picturesque garden, which has the amazing view looking over the sea and cliff tops. This was their traditional white wedding and was conducted by a friend, who was also David’s best man. When the ceremony was finished, the bridesmaids took off dancing through the aisle followed by the bride and groom.
The weather was a perfect sunny day and the celebrations went long into the night, capping off a brilliant day full of energy.
I would like to wish the newlyweds the very best for the future.
