In Ethiopian tradition, the arrival of the groom to pick up his bride from her house is a very especial moment. Very early on the wedding morning, the groom’s entourage, also known as the groomsmen, prepares the groom for the big day.

While the groom prepares himself at his parents’ home, the bride also does the same thing at her parents’ home in the company of her entourage. The bride’s entourage is also known as bridesmaids.

Once the groom is ready, he and the groomsmen find their way to the house of the bride’s parents. Upon arrival at the bride’s home, everyone, including the bride, is ready to receive them.

The people inside the house will come out one after the other, singing and dancing to the traditional song that communicates their readiness not to allow anyone in to see the bride.

The atmosphere is always filled with excitement, and the groom pleads with these people to allow him to see the bride.

The groom gets permission to see the bride and presents flowers to her. After the bride accepts the flower, she kisses the groom and follows it up with a warm hug. Afterward, everyone will start the big celebration and start heading to where the party is.

This miniature shows the moment the groom has picked up his bride and everybody is headed to the party singing and dancing.
