The food is always good and this wedding was no exception.
As you can see it was cooked outside in huge saucepans. One of the Aunts was in control of the whole thing.
Then the other Aunts and cousins come to help feed the few hundred guests.

Despite the lack of fancy cutlery the food was fantastic and everyone was satisfied. These kind of weddings last for 3 days. They cook one meal on the Friday for lunch, some just serve tea. On the Saturday is the main event as that involves 2 meals plus tea and lasts until midnight. The Sunday doesn't start too early and ends at about noon. The celebrations shown here are just for the brides family. The grooms family comes on the Sunday do a couple of dances and takes the bride away along with all her furniture(wedding gifts and dowry)to join their growing clan.
What did you have for your wedding meal? Chicken? Fish? Beef?
