K&A: Hindu Indian Wedding in Bali
Hindu Indian Wedding in Bali of Keya and Aditya. The grandeur of a time-honored Hindu Indian wedding in Bali was on full display when Keya and Aditya sealed their love at Tirtha Uluwatu. A small gathering of traditionally costumed family members participated in a ceremonial procession to escort the bride to her groom. Several symbolic rites, including a Holy Fire Ritual, were performed throughout the course of the afternoon.
Hindu Indian Wedding are filled with colourful offerings, cultural events lasting over the course of a few days. The Haldi, Mehndi, and Sangeet all play a very important role in the celebration of the union of two people. The culmination of all these events, however, is the wedding day which in and of itself consists of significant moments of religion and culture that pull together to create a beautiful celebration of marriage and Indian culture.
The myriad of traditional and elegant ceremonies that make up a Hindu wedding not only brings the families of the bride and groom closer together, but also ensures that no one leaves the festivities without having a good time.
Per tradition, the couple circled the sacred fire seven times to signify the seven vows they take as husband and wife.
I’ve been shooting an Hindu Indian Wedding few times but always amazed with the colour. Congratulations for the wedding! Everyone seemed to have a marveolous time attending the Indian Wedding.
