Curious about your African Wedding Traditions author? That’s me!
Hi there and thanks for coming over to learn more about me! My name is Ijeoma, it is an Igbo (Nigerian) name and it means “safe journey”, so I hope you have a safe and happy journey through this site.
I am the owner, webmaster and the voice behind AfricanWeddingTraditions.com. What that means is that I write all this wonderful information on African weddings so that you can read about them.
I ask friends and family, I read lots of books, I blend in my own personal knowledge and experiences and then I share the best of the best with you! It’s a lot of fun for me because I love weddings, so I hope you enjoy it too.
Just about every little girl dreams of her wedding day and for those of us of African descent, there is a moving trend nowadays of going back to our roots and incorporating elements of our African wedding traditions into our wedding ceremonies. That’s what this site is all about! As the African Wedding Traditions author, it is my intention to provide not just historical information about African weddings, but also to show you how to incorporate these elements into your own wedding. Along the way, I also make recommendations on wedding vendors that cater specifically to African-American brides and grooms.
