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."
