Camera is focused on the official photographer who makes coordinating gestures to the couple


AN HOUR LATER

Camera rivets to the couple. A very plump and huge wife beside a very small groom

AKETE

AKETE

Wife reluctantly picks him up with ease. Immediately he stretches out like a ballet dancer.

Everyone is shocked.
