Fall In Love With A Samburu Lady And Expect This Wedding Ceremony




If you fall in love with a Samburu lady.....This is how a wedding ceremony will go.




Milk plays a large role in a Samburu wedding; it has a magic and religious presence and is used for anointing during the rituals.

The elders walk around the couple with a wand-like creation containing either cow, giraffe, or wildebeest tail hair, and wisp drops of milk over the couple whilst sharing their wisdom with the married couple.

Substantial quantities of milk are prepared for the ceremony as traditionally the bodies of the newly-weds are actually smeared in the milk.

Once the elders’ have finished sharing their wisdom with the newly-weds, and the vows have been exchanged, it’s time to celebrate the union,Of course in Samburu tradition, the moran that can jump the highest, is the one that will attract the attention of the single ladies at the wedding!

Much dancing and celebrations continue – with everyone joining in. Traditionally, the newly-weds then spend their honeymoon in a ‘white’ or ‘pure’ house (a house that has not yet been lived in) to begin their life together.
