Japanese Wedding - A Food Jackpot

This past weekend I was lucky enough to attend my first Japanese weddding as my colleague from the school was marrying a local. It was an amazing experience that was full of unique traditions, beautiful clothing and amazing food.

I thought you might like to see the bountiful dishes that were served at this wedding. I couldn't believe it when dish after dish after dish came and went. And yet...I kept on eating.
The entree (or starter) with lots of sushi.  On the right is seaweed, egg and eel.  The middle was fish and long necked crab and the pot was caviar kinda stuff.  All yummy.  
Had to show a close up of the beans.  Aren't they to die for?
Sashimi - I dug everything on this plate bar the lighter white fish with the three stripes...ick
I am not exactly sure what this was but it was warm and it tasted good so who am I to argue?
Vegetable soup - my mum makes better :)
This was fantastically amazing.  Japan has given me a renewed interest in the humble fish or 'sakana'.
Reeeeed Meeeeeat - I was in sheer heaven.  Steak, how I have missed thee these past 9 months.
Celebration rice
Miso soup to finish off the meal.
Dessert - cheesecake and chocolate sponge (which some of the guests found a little hard to define. )
The Cake.

Looks like those dishes could be made by a cook in the world class. So beautiful presented :) It must be wonderful to get to attend a Japanese wedding, I'm guessing there's some traditions that differs from the ones in Australia.
