Vibrant colours, vivid images, beautiful jewelleries, and full of emotions. Welcome to our first traditional Indian wedding ceremonies. Ken and I are still learning different rituals of this amazing culture. Starting form GHARI ceremony with holy water from the Ismaili Jamatkhana; to a mamero ceremony where Noorin’s maternal family brings gifts for bride’s family. We found the pineapple ceremony very interesting, which is used to ward off evils. During the raaki ceremony, Asif’s mother ties a bracelet on the Noorin’s wrist, and then proceeds to fee Asif and Noorin with food. The feeding of the food then continued by all their extended families signifies the uniting of not just their immediate families, but also their extended families. I hope my very simple explanation will make the photos more interesting and meaningful for all of you. Thank you Noorin for providing me all the important details.
