Hello Tom,

The infinitive form you ask about is an infinitive of purpose, but it can be a bit difficult to see since other parts of the phrase have been omitted. The full phrase is something like 'After taking some photographs to record the big day ....', which is a shorter form of something like 'After they all take some photographs to record the big day ....' In this case, 'they all take photos' doesn't necessarily mean that the people in the wedding will take the photos, i.e. presumably there will be a photographer who does that. It's just easier to say it this way than to say 'After a photographer takes some photographs to record the big day ....'

Does that make sense?

All the best,

What does "amandeep" mean? I've look for it on dictionary, but I didn't find out its meaning. Could you help me with it, please?
Thank you very much!
It's really an interesting and helpful video!

Hello Rosie Phan,

I'm not surprised you couldn't find this in a dictionary because it is simply a name! The presenter is called 'Amandeep'. It is, I believe, a Pubjabi name originally.

There are traditional dances, treats and lots of funny and interesting friends and relatives in our wedding ceremonies in Turkey :) I think you should always be kind, understanding and reliable.

hi there,
Amandeep ask "what have you got left to do?".I don't know what it mean?

Hello nguyen bao tin,

This is a question we ask when someone is part-way through a task. Some things have been done and other things have not. The question asks what things still need to be done. Here Amandeep is asking which parts of the wedding preparations are not completed yet.

 

Best wishes,

We always dance in the weddings, Turkey likes dancing.
You should be confident and understanding

Generally in my culture, the wedding is not depending on the religion.
I think patience and understanding makes permanent the relationship.

Bride's father in the video looks like her contemporary. He seems not much older.

I saw in this video/ transcript a word : "the vicar". I understood that it is a synonym for the "priest", isn't it ? There is a Romanian word too and its meaning is "a priest or a bishop who replaces a higher rank church official". I didn't know that I could find it in the English language.

Very interesting and useful video !
Thank you very much !
