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.
