Most people will find it strange or maybe outrageous to turn up for a wedding only to find the bride wearing actual shoes or sneakers instead of the usual heels for their wedding.
Well, it’s happened in the beautiful nation of Ghana with the bride and her hubby receiving so many questions, applauds, and even insults for the choice.
The Bride, Vera Ewura Obeng a professional photographer from Ghana did not go for heels for the big day and rather opted for custom-made desert boots from Horseman Shoes.
According to her after being a wedding photographer for 6 years and seeing the pain most of these women suffer just to look glam, she wasn’t about to go through the same fate hence her drastic decision.
In a post on facebook which has received more than 2,000 likes and close to 500 shares plus zillions of comments the beautiful Cinderella bride explained her choice and did a little clap back at all those who were mocking her.
“After being a wedding photographer(VeraObengphotography) for 6 years it’s 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 the reception? I just don’t get it. If you want heels wear it throughout 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 pasteSarkodieng me. Our problem is we do it without reading through what we have copied”
For those saying I am manifest? sister, “eeeiiii ghanafo kasa” I’ve only seen him once. It was from a distance in a hotel I went to work in. It would be nice to have him as a big brother though. Never heard any of his songs except the recent one to sarkodie?. And I can say I don’t understand a thing. Call me “kolo”. ” I like it like that”
Again 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 adjus,t but not to change who weare. He loves me and I do love him also. No need to change. “love you Festus 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)
To all those who made Wednesday 13th July a Special day for my husband and I, thank you. You have no Idea what it means to us.
