In a few days, I will be posting the first set of photos from the Strauss wedding, and I am pretty excited about it. For now, though, we will have to settle for a few candid shots of the miniature groom. Here in Namibia, a little boy and a little girl will act as the miniature groom and bride at each wedding. They are required to sit up front with the bride and groom. Yep, everyone here sits during the ceremony (I think they might be on to something...). Sometimes, the length of the ceremony gets to be too much for the kids, and they get up to go sit with their parents.
But not this one:
You can clearly tell this is just not his thing!
My heart went out to the little guy. He was trying SO hard to be patient and well behaved.
Finally the ceremony was finished, and his job was done! Well...almost. We went to take pictures, where he had to wait some more. At least this time there was room to spread out : )
Check back soon for more pictures of this special wedding...you won't be disappointed!
