Amazing!! Check out photos from Barbie & Ken's Nigerian wedding

You've probably never seen anything like this before. Well, I haven't! Its so lovely. These are the traditional wedding photos of Nigerian Barbie & Ken shot by famed Nigerian wedding photographer Obi Nwokedi. He actually did this a while back but I just stumbled on the photos. It's amazing! It's a real wedding album, from the bride dressing up till when then party stops. See the photos after the cut...
