A Turkmenistan Wedding Movie


Turkmen weddings, or Toys, are not to be missed. Seriously. Even my COS date was commented upon not because I was leaving (perhaps never to return) but because it meant I would miss my cousin's wedding. They are the social event of the week, although even in some small villages, you may have 2 or 3 other Toys to attend that same week... 

Preparations for Toys are often more intensive than the Toys themselves, and everyone gets involved. 

This collection of videos is from a small village outside of Mary City.
