Talk about having a small wedding.
London photographer Obi Nwokedi recently set up and photographed a miniature traditional Nigerian wedding between Barbie and Ken.

The photos illustrate a Nigerian wedding from beginning to end, from Barbie and Ken's pre-wedding prep to a scene with all the groomsmen passed out after a boisterous reception.
Nwokedi told The Huffington Post that the project took about five months to complete.
It was "not because it was that complex, but more because of the time it took me to find, buy and ship the dolls and accessories," he said. He was inspired to do the Barbie wedding after seeing the Black Barbie issue of Vogue Italia last year.
Nwokedi said he chose Barbie for the project because he wanted to feature "something interesting to the public."

Groom And Groomsmen
In a traditional Nigerian wedding, the groom and groomsmen lie prostrate on the floor in front of the bride and her party to show respect, and to ask for her hand in marriage.
The groom and groomsmen show respect to the bride by lying down in front of her and her bridal party to ask for her hand in marriage.
After showing respect, the groom gives a framed marriage proposal to a female in the bride's family, who then reads the proposal aloud.
Beneath The Veil
The bride puts a hat on her groom to signify that he is now the head of the household, and that she alone is responsible for tending to him.
