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.
"After being a wedding photographer(#VeraObengphotography) 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 don'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 doesn't make my photos nice. My "comboo" as some are calling it is actually custom made "#HORESEMAN HOOVES ".
We all copy and paste including 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 adjust but not to change who we are. He loves me and I do love him also. No need to change. "love you hFestus 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. For those who "run" away to come..."
