Joana and Virgilio’s wedding belongs to my series about traditional weddings in Africa. The day of the wedding itself was fairly westernized including getting ready at the family house, the local Evangelist church service and the big buffet at the reception. The morning after the wedding, we all gathered at the Assembly of God Church in Maputo, Mozambique among other newly-wed couples to receive the benediction of the community. Since it was the first Sunday of the month, all smaller churches and more than 10,000 people came together. It was the first time for me to witness a the state of transe from some attendees. An amazing experience all captured in black and white.
