Pakistani Asian wedding traditions in the UK

Our weather isn’t noted for reliability, so taking Asian wedding photos outside in the morning, before going to the wedding reception at Bolton Excellency, was a bit of a risk.  The bride and her 7 sisters organised the day well, with a 7AM start filming and taking photos,  for  Jorge and me, plus a one hour drive before that. Well we struck lucky as with a bit of patience, the sun did appear, between the fast-moving clouds, in between the raindrops.  The first pic here is of the bride’s mother, as she washed up at the kitchen sink.  I placed her first, as consider her to be an amazing woman, as she has 10 children of all ages!
