Oh my, our first Indian Wedding! I find this beautiful culture so captivating. It truly amazes me that traditionally these weddings are a whole week long and the ceremony is usually about 3 hours. Oh man, I bet the couple are definitely ready for their honeymoon after all of that! The rituals are so fascinating and enchanting. It is not only about the bride and the groom, but about the two families uniting as one. Each moment during the ceremony has cultural significance and centuries old traditions. Just breathtaking!
This submission is from the lovely Ruby of Rubida Claribel Photography. The colors are so vibrant and rich! I found it extremely difficult to choose from all of these gorgeous photos that I’ve included nearly all of them that were submitted. Take this journey with us on our first Indian wedding. Which are your favorites?
The centerpieces are stunning and all of the red and gold accents are awe inspiring. We are in love with these towering gold candelabras. They really set the mood for this grand affair.
Once the bride approaches the mandap, the bride and groom exchange floral garlands. This signifies their acceptance of one another. What a beautiful ceremony! I love how although we are all so different in so many ways, you can see many similarities from culture to culture.
This reminds me a little of the crowns in the Greek Orthodox Christianity or maybe even the lassos in the Hispanic Catholic traditions. It shows that we are all connected in some small way.
Thank you for sharing in this beautiful journey with us. This was a real treat for us here at PPB. Please stay tuned for part two of this superb celebration. Ruby will be sharing another event from Emily and Renesh next month! We are so excited, don’t miss it!
