Hindu Wedding in Hyderabad--February 2016






We had the opportunity to attend a Hindu wedding when we were in Hyderabad.

Beautiful traditional outfits and traditional Hindu ceremony.









Each part of the wedding has a very specific ceremonial and symbolic function.

Rice represents life, rice sprinkled on the heads of the couple denotes a blessing of a long-lasting marriage.
































There were two bands--both playing simultaneously most of the time--that lended to a festive (and very loud) atmosphere.




The reception was at a very nice hotel two days later.

Everyone greeted the bride and groom on a stage.

There were lots of photos--two cinematographers and three still photographers captured almost everything.
