From the first pictures were are in the privacy of the family apartment where the children of the couple are present while their mom prepares herself. The whole family then moves to the town hall with much joy and ambience. The volume of Arabic music is maximum in the car that does not prevent children from falling asleep in the back. The motorcade does not hesitate to stop in the middle of a roundabout to dance and sing there. At the town hall, a nice surprise for the couple: the grandma of the groom joined the party and will remain for the Indian dinner.
“We are family” is a series of photographs that shows strong family ties in an Algerian wedding. The couple Momo and Shera have 4 children and have invited their family and some friends for the their wedding at the town hall followed by an Indian restaurant. All generations are present for this festive day. The pictures capture true moments of complicity between the members of this family.
