And I found this. It was very Marrickville. A young Aussie bloke marrying a Viet girl. He's the one in the spotted outfit. Just in front of him is the roast pig that the groom's family bring for the feast. Other members of his family are carrying food offerings for corresponding members of the bride's family. They were lining up before heading to a house a few doors down. I think the groom's father is the older bloke up the street. He came down all flustered when he saw me and was all apologetic. He said, 'I'm sorry about this. It must be a bit odd.' 'You're not from around here, are you?' I said. 'This isn't odd at all. It's Marrickville. You're going to have a great day. Just go with it.'
