I was lucky enough to have Frances and Mark here for the wedding. Yay, more people who speak fluent English!
The technichal getting married paperwork happened in a very small, totally unglamourous office. They wrote our marriage contract into a record book which Hassan and I had to sign. Frances has all of the pictures of that on her camera.
Thursday night, we got henna done at home. Here's mine before scraping off the dried paste.
On Friday night, we had the wedding party in a tent room that had been constructed on the roof of our building. First the groom made his entrance.
Then the bride, along with a procession of chanting and drumming in-laws.
First we sat for some photos.
Then we got tired of sitting, so we stood for some photos.
And after what seemed like a long time... and some dinner... we changed clothes and sat down for more pictures. This time they were of us exchanging rings...
