6. There is always an “aunty” who comes up to all the single people and asks, “When are you getting married?” or says, “You’re next!”

The Indian weddings that I have been to in England were absolutely rubbish. I cannot remember going to a single one where I enjoyed the food or the atmosphere. When I tell them people how we do Indian weddings in Guyana and Suriname they don't believe me.
