We had the wedding reception preparation on our side 6 months before the actual event took place. There's a lot to prepare, i.e. invitation list, foods, tents, the room, the gifts to the bride etc etc. The groom is indeed very lucky as all his siblings contributed to his wedding, being the last who wed. We did everything in equality and harmony, with everyone participation including preparing the food ourselves. Memorable photos during the reception events are now shared here.

At the time of the wedding, our beloved parents, eldest brother and second youngest sister were not with us as they passed away years ago. It was great to see how all of us reunited in a good spirit to make the event a success. It was held at our late parents house, now in the groom's custody. Below photos are when the bride's arrived along with all other invited guests and the villagers.

Though tired and exhausted with whole of that week fully occupied with visiting (on Eid 2012 festivals, solemnization and reception at the bride side and the big day on our side, we were indeed very blessed that the wedding was no doubt, a success. The next day, while parting, we hugs and shed tears of happiness.
