 In November 2015 Pope Francis visited Uganda, landing at Entebbe Airport before traveling by motorcade to the country's capital, Kampala. At the time I was in Entebbe working with an NGO and had the privilege of witnessing the thousands of Ugandans who came out to show their support for the Pope, lining Entebbe Road for miles.   Uganda’s religious heritage is tripartite: indigenous religions, Islam and Christianity, with about 40% identifying as Catholic.   
       
     
 In late 2015, while in Uganda working with an anti-trafficking NGO, I had the privilege of attending a traditional wedding in the rural village of Opucet. This series of images contain scenes from the ceremony as well as the reception feast that was later prepared for the entire village.
