Malawian Wedding

This past weekend, I went to my first Malawian Wedding- Venji and Tili’s. It was a beautiful outdoor wedding at Lake Malawi.

The highlight was taking part in the Malawian wedding tradition ‘perekani, perekani’ where we danced around the bride and groom while tossing bills at them.

We took this group pic right after our turn at perekani.

Also, what is a Malawian wedding without a few live chickens running around? One of the wedding staff ran towards us exclaiming that a chicken was on the loose. Luckily, he was found under our table.

Like what you read? Give Mariam Azam a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
