My name is Gulmaral, I am from Kazakhstan. Today I like to told you about Kazakh wedding. In these photos I am in Kazakh wedding dress. (It was 6th of November 2010). Of course in our country a lot of girls prefer european style wedding dresses, but at that time I desided to wear kazakh dress because it is so beautiful with charming ornaments. The main part of Kazahk dress is Saukele. (headwear) It is not only the most expensive part of the decoration of the bride, he also serves as a symbol of the beginning of a new life. Top "saukele" invariably crowned "uky" (fluffy bunch of feathers owl).


Waiting for the bridal couple

This photo has been taken in Gibellina itself, a town within the Sicilian province of Trapani, Italy. I shot the photo in the afternoon, on July 24th, 2010. It shows the Cathedral of the city, and people waiting for the bride and the groom to come out.
