A Ghanaian photographer, Vera Ewura Obeng who decided to wear sneakers on her wedding day became talk of the town some days ago. The lady after the ceremony was trending on almost all social media platforms for wearing the Horseman manufactured shoes.
Many who expected her to be in high heels as it is the norm could not fathom why she walked down on the aisle in sneakers. These criticisms have pushed her to explain her reason to be in those “camboo” on her wedding day.
Vera Ewura Obeng in a Facebook message said she did not want to experience the hustle brides go through on their wedding day when they have to remove their high heels several times before the day ends because they do not feel comfortable in them. She said countless brides have given her a tough time in her field of work for the past six years due to the pains they experience when they are in heels.
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.
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 Festus 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, I hope yBetty AidoodidnBetty Aidoo
