A Ghanaian bride, Vera Ewura Obeng opted for custom-made desert boots for her wedding on July 13. According to the professional photographer, she took the decision after seeing the pain most women go through in a bid to look glam on their Big Day. In a Facebook posted on July 20th, the bride explained her choice of footwear and of course, clapped back at those making fun of her.
â€œAfter being a wedding photographer(â€ª#â€ŽVeraObengphotographyâ€¬) 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 donâ€™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 doesnâ€™t make my photos nice. My â€œcombooâ€ as some are calling it is actually custom made â€œâ€ª#â€ŽHORESEMANâ€¬ HOOVES â€œ.
We all copy and paste including me. Our problem is we do it
without reading through what we have copiedâ€
For those saying I am â€ª#â€Žmanifestâ€¬ sister, â€œeeeiiii ghanafo) kasaâ€ Iâ€™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 â€ª#â€Žsarkodieâ€¬. And I can say I donâ€™t understand a thing. Call me â€œkoloâ€. â€ 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 â€œcombine powers like captain planet â€œ. 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. â€œlove you hFestus Attah Isoah Iso
And for my dress , I just donâ€™t get the bit where I spend thousands of mahama cedis on a dress I canâ€™t wear again.. â€œI just canâ€™t think farâ€ ðŸ˜‚ðŸ˜‚ðŸ˜‚ðŸ˜‚. 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 donâ€™t have anything against wearing of heels and gowns. (you look like disney princessesÂ )
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. For those who â€œrunâ€ away to comeâ€¦â€
