Some more Pictures

The church wedding was at 4pm.It was a long Anglican ceremony one and a half hours in duration..Dinner would be served at 8.30pm. So we took a break at home to check on the elders.We arrived at the reception hall after 7, by that time the cake was already cut and dissembled. So I couldn 't get a picture of that. But you can see the pieces of the cake which was served. Its a rich fruit cake with marzipan icing beautifully decorated. The above right picture has the silk confetti pouches, wedding program and thank you card.

From the handicraft fair I bought these lovely golden grass baskets from Manipur (NE India)
The flower is made of sea shells and painted.The seller claimed it would float in water but it didn 't.

The dolls behind it are old.They are a Hindu bride and groom.
