Wedding rehearsal

The wedding was in a church on top of a hill in the countryside outside Colombo. The countryside was absolutely beautiful, with rice paddies, coconut trees, and banana trees everywhere. Here are some photos I took on the rehearsal day:

Henna is magical stuff. When you first rub the paste off, the stain left behind is quite red. Over the next couple of days it darkens considerably, before it eventually starts to fade again. These are all the bridesmaids’ hands. I’m the one with the green sleeves.

Poor Joe slept outside during the whole rehearsal. We thought it was the world’s worst hangover but he was still so ill the next day that he couldn’t make it to the wedding.
