Location: Sana’a Yemen


Secret: It’s all about culture. When the big day comes to tie the knot, the grooms of Yemen follow the cultural fashion dictations.


Breakdown: Floral necklaces, Jambiyas and overall fabulousness brings forth Sana’a’s traditional ambience. In a land where marriages of various couples often take place at the same time, place and day, here you have three grooms sitting ready to tie the knot with their respective brides.
