It is customary with Ghanaians to first begin the marriage process with a traditional marriage ceremony where the hand of the bride is sought from her parents and extended family. However, the traditional marriage ceremony differs from tribe to tribe.
Nana Ekua, a member of the Akan tribe ditched the Kente outfit which is normally worn during this ceremony for a more contemporary outfit by Ghanaian women’s fashion brand, She By Bena. Nana Ekua wowed in a blue beaded peplum top over a fish-tail skirt whilst Nelly, like most traditional grooms wore white Agbada with a matching blue cap for the ceremony.
