I thought we had lost all the pictures we’d taken our wedding day up until a few days ago when we found them on a forgotten memory card! So, in celebration of this discovery, here are some small details from my big day…
Or best translated as, wedding candy, is a Tunisian tradition. Inside each flower is pieces of candy and every guest takes a flower home with them. Amel bought some beautiful flowers in shades of purple, green and white. The night before we carefully arranged the bouquets in wooden baskets.
hamouya and hamati
I previously wrote about the unforgettable moment with my hamouya (father-in-law) handing me over to Mansour on the street.
And I have my hamati (mother-in-law) to thank for everything. She planned a beautiful wedding in one week!

Mansour surprised me with Kerkennian musicians.

The cake was bought from Gourmandise.
At night, I changed dresses and removed my stick-on-nails. Our friend Anis gave me a beautiful harkous tattoo on my hands and fingers.
The whole neighborhood joined us to brave the cold and dance the night away.
I’m now in the process of uploading all pictures to a Smugmug gallery.
