Kashmiri wedding

Carrying the water pitcher

The Bride awaits her groom

The arrival of the groom

We went to a wedding last night in Rawalpindi. The families were Kashmiri though, not Pakistani. It wasn't very exciting as all we seemed to do was sit around waiting for the bride to arrive. She was due at 8.30pm but eventually they decided we should eat first instead and she arrived at 10.30pm.

I had a turn at carrying the water jug which is a tradition in Kashmir for the ladies and I think is supposed to bring luck to the couple.
