Ethiopian Orthodox Wedding

Ethiopian Wedding 1We were woken at 5.45am by singing, not unusual on a Sunday morning but this was Saturday and there was an unmistakeable exuberance about it. The Ethiopian Orthodox community were up early to celebrate three weddings and by the time Ethiopian Wedding 2I had got back from Awali at 11.30am they were still going strong – they have an amazing stamina and, as you can see, it was a very crowded and colourful occasion!
