"A one night wedding is a year’s preparation," a famous Algerian saying.

Particularly in the lead-up to Ramadan, summer is a popular time for traditional, elaborate weddings in Algeria.

At the heart of these celebrations are the brides with their handmade outfits, jewelry and henna parties; as well as delicious local food, music and armed horsemen in tribal war dress.

Al Jazeera World’s "Algerian wedding" offers a rare glimpse into the nation’s marital rituals by going behind the scenes of three rich and lavish family celebrations.
