Bukhara, Uzbekistan

Mukhsram, a Koranic celebrant, leads loud call-and-response prayers with the bride, Ruxsora, and female wedding guests. On her way to the ceremonial curtain, Ruxora is ushered with two loaves of 'lepyoshka' bread, candles and a mirror. The ceremonial fire has echoes of older Zoroastrian traditions.
