Sierra Leone: weddings in Sierra Leone

Sandra posts photos and writes about Sierra Leonean weddings: “Three of our employees got married in the past 5 weeks. Needless to say we got a good taste of what Sierra Leonean weddings are like….”


  • I noticed that the bride used a bouquet of artificial flowers. Why did she use artificial flowers? Is she allergic to real flowers?

    I can’t imagine a series of weddings in a month. That’s quite a hectic wedding schedule but weddings are truly spectacular so attending a row of weddings even in a day won’t make you tired.
