Ghanaian photographer, Vera Ewura Obeng, set social media on a frenzy when she shared photos from her wedding day wearing a simple wedding dress and red sneakers to match.
The photographer who specializes in taking wedding photos, explained the reason why she opted for an unconventional wedding dress and shoes on her Facebook page after so many reactions to her look.
Here are the two major things we learnt from her note when it comes to weddings;
- Do you! It should be about what makes you happy and not about what everyone else is doing.
- Don’t spend on what you think is not worth it just to impress people.
”After being a wedding photographer(#VeraObengphotography) for 6 years its only fair that I learn not to repeat what Brides go through over and over again.
For me, what is the point in wearing heels to church and remove it during reception? I just don’t get it. If you want heels wear it through out the event. I wore mine for 9 hours. I see Brides complaining about the heels all the time. It even doesn’t make my photos nice. My “comboo” as some are calling it is actually custom made “#HORESEMAN HOOVES “.
” We all copy and paste including me. Our problem is we do it without reading through what we have copied”
For those suggesting my husband should have been in something similar, thanks a lot for your suggestion. The idea was not to “combine powers like captain planet “. He is an academician and I am an artist. We can only adjust but not to change who we are. He loves me and I do love him also. No need to change. “love you hFestus Attah Isoah Iso
And for my dress 😂😂😂😂, I just don’t get the bit where I spend thousands of mahama cedis on a dress I can’t wear again.. “I just can’t think far” 😂😂😂😂. Invite me to your baby christening and I will gladly come in it. For me this was my dream wedding, if you choose to wear a heel as tall as me, at the end of the day, its all about our choices.
Note that I don’t have anything against wearing of heels and gowns. (you look like disney princesses 😍 )”
