First of all take a rest. Have a siesta — a big one. Stamina is key to surviving an Argentinian boda wedding. But before we dissect the mixture of the tradition, syncretism and the frankly bizarre moments of an Argentinian wedding, we need to roll back the time to when the two lovers were, well, just that.

To take a Churchill quote wildly out of context, dating a girl or boy in Argentina is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma. One myth is that Argentinians, of both sexes, are obsessed with marriage. Ninety-two per cent of the country claim to be Catholic, although only 20 per cent practise regularly. For this reason and, more importantly, simple economics, most Argentinian boys and girls live at home until they are married. Hence the popularity of the Telo — Argentinian sex hotels.

No wonder they want to get the hell out and married so quickly. The average age for a man to get married is Argentine Wedding — Photograph by Emiliano Horcada. No engagement rings here bloody sensible if you ask me , but they are worn on the right hand until the wedding day. Next up is the Wedding Shower — basically an engagement party. Before the wedding day, often precariously close, is the despedida de soltero and soltera — stag and hen nights, which basically consist of ritual humiliation, nudity, strippers and dressing up as a bunny.

The next day, however, is the big day. Stamina, I reiterate, is needed. The service is mercifully brief. There are no bridesmaids or best men. If you not so lucky, you could end up in a salon de fiesta. The glowing couple start the evening off with a waltz. Guests line up either side — men on one side, women on the other, and at some point, the couple will part and grab another dance partner.

Here ensues a painful two minutes, akin to the last slow dance at a school disco whereby you seek a partner, or are sought by someone. By now, famished and in desperate need of booze, you are shown to a table, where the feast commences. It is, needless to say, mostly a meal of meat, with side portions of meat and, for vegetarians, chicken. Then the one where you do the can-can. Then bride is spun around to within an inch of her life. Thankfully at around 6am, breakfast is brought out, usually accompanied by whisky, at which point I suggest you skip the whisky, and skip to the taxi.
