Wedding well-wishers, Cameroon

There was a communal wedding ceremony at City Hall in Foumban, with crowds inside the hall and out. Each couple signed a register in front of the mayor, with both sets of parents also signing. Every time they did, the crowd cheered and shouted their approval. Weddings and funerals are communal events in West and Central Africa. Everyone's invited.
