Bride Price Ceremony, March, 2002:

This particular 'Bride Price Ceremony' was in celebration of:

Bessie Iubu and Nick Loi

The amount of K50,000 was raised and handed over to the bride's parents.

The amount was then distributed again amongst the bride's mother and father's family relatives.

The bride's family members are also compensated for the cost of preparing the food for the bride price. They usually end up with double the amount they originally spend to purchase the food.
