We have been inquiring into weddings. Ms Leah asked us to share what we know about weddings and what we'd like to find out:
Darshan: I don't know anything about weddings.
James: I am from China. Weddings are fun.
Freya: I have no idea (about weddings). I want to know a little about what people wear.
Cesca: I don't know about weddings.What do they use at weddings? What do they eat?
Justin: In China our wedding is like we have to wear rings.
Flynn: We put a 'just married' sign on. Dad puts a suit on. Mum puts on a dress. I want to know more about weddings in New Zealand.
Qaseh: I do not know about weddings. I want to know how to prepare a wedding.
Seheon: In my country people sometimes wear a shirt that is closed with string or closed with a zipper.
We looked at a picture of Amy's parents wedding.
Cesca: Wow, so beautiful!
Ameen: They wear bright colours.
Maanya: Yes, because remember? Ms Florence said Chinese people wear bright colours like red and gold, because they are lucky.
Justin: And they are happy colours. A wedding is a happy time.
Darshan: It's like the clothes for Chinese New Year.
Qaseh: And she's holding something. A fan.
Freya: Sometimes they hold flowers instead.
We also looked at wedding photos of Flynn's parents.
Cesca: She's wearing a white dress.
Ameen: He's wearing a suit. A black suit.
Seheon: I think they like nice cars.
Amy: I can see the sea. They put in a sign.
Ms Leah showed us some of her wedding photos.
Cesca: How come your hair looks different?
Ms Leah: Usually for weddings someone else does the bride's hair and make up.
Amy: What's that hanging at the back?
Ms Leah: It's called a veil.
Isaiah: Where did the wedding take place?
Ms Leah: Bali. In Indonesia.
Ameen: How come you didn't get married in Canada?
Ms Leah: My husband is from the UK so we thought we would have a small wedding in Asia.
Isaiah: Who all went?
Ms Leah: It was very small. Just family and close friends.
Seheon: Who took the photos?
Ms Leah: Usually a photographer takes photos.
Amy: What's a photographer?
Maanya: A person who takes pictures.
Cesca: Look at the flowers!
Amy: Why do you carry the flowers?
Ms Leah: Usually a bride carries flowers and then at the party afterwards all the unmarried ladies stand behind her and she throws her bouquet. The belief is the person who catches it will get married next.
Seheon: Who got it?
Ms Leah: One of my friends.
Seheon: Did she get married?
Ms Leah: No, she's not married yet.
Ameen: What about the guys?
Ms Leah: The groom throws something too.
Ameen: Who got that?
Ms Leah: My brother. He did get married soon afterwards.
The next day Freya brought in a picture of her parents.
Freya: This is my Show & Tell. My mom and dad are in a car.
Amy: Who is the person behind?
Freya: I don't know.
Ameen: She also has a white dress on.
Maanya: And a veil.
Ameen: And he is also wearing a suit.
Amy: Did they just get married?
Freya: I don't know.
Ms. Leah: Usually in the UK the bride and groom arrive separately for the wedding and leave together. So they probably are either on their way to the party or on their way to their honeymoon.
Freya: But she still has her flowers so they are on the way to the party.
Ameen: Did they get married in England?
Freya: I don't know. I think so.
