Asian wedding in Pakistan

The first Asian wedding we ever covered was a massive event with 2,000 guests on the final day’s Walimah.  Roll on nearly 10 years and that very same family was organising another wedding, for one of the brothers this time, so the family was happy to invite me to Pakistan. The visa and flights came to over £700, which I  paid myself, so you can see my motive wasn’t financial, but to experience a real Pakistani wedding.
