Tying the Knot

Tying the knot symbolizes the unbreakable bond between husband and wife. Before the vows, the officiant loosely ties the bride and groom’s wrists together with a strip of kente cloth or a string of cowrie shells. Once tied together, the couple says their vows to confirm their commitment to one another.
