Indian Traditional Wedding 2018 | Naresh and Ayushi

MAHURAT

First, before everything else, the Mahurat, or the auspicious date and time for the Indian wedding, needs to be decided by the pandit ji.  He’ll determine, based on the horoscopes of the bride and groom, the best time of day for the rituals to being as well as the actual wedding day.

BARAAT

The wedding kicks off with the Baraat, the all-singing all-dancing wedding procession of the groom and his family.  The Baraat can and often does include luxury cars, booming music, and a horse or baggy (Rath).  This is primarily a North Indian Tradition.

AARTI

After the groom has made his way to the front of the house/hall/hotel with his Baraat to where the wedding is taking place, he is greeted by the bride’s parents.  He and his family receive tikaas from the bride’s mother or bhabhi  who performs an Aarti over them.  They are then welcomed into the house.  This is considered the formal meeting of the two families.

Jaymala (Varamala)

Once the groom has made his way to the entrance of the wedding hall or home, the bride, flanked by her sisters and bridemaids, will be waiting with a garland for him. During the Jaymala (Varamala) that follows, the bride and groom exchange flower garlands and sometimes deliver a sort of vow in which they promise to be united forever.  Apparently, whoever can put the garland on their partner first will have the upper hand in the marriage.

Next the groom is brought to the mandap, a sort of altar, where he is given a mixture of yogurt and honey by the bride’s father.

Kanyadaan

The Kanya Pratigrahan (Kanyadaan) where the groom’s mother gives the bride a mangala sutra, a long necklace made of gold and black beads.  The father of the bride will then place his daughter’s hand in the groom’s.  He states that his family has accepted the groom and wishes for the groom’s family to accept the bride.  These two traditions combined illustrate that the parents are facilitating the union of their children.

Havan

Phew! So many formalities.  Now on to the good stuff – the fire!  The havan, is lit across from the bride and groom.  It is a direct invocation to the god Agni, who is supposed to be the official divine witness of the marriage.  The pandit ji offers crushed sandalwood, ghee, herbs, and rice to the fire while reciting Vedic prayers over it.

The bride and groom both repeat the prayers spoken by the pandit ji.  These are usually promises to be humble and faithful to God and each other.  In continuation from these prayers, the groom takes his bride’s hand for the Paanigrahan and says something along the lines of “I hold your hand, and we are now husband and wife”

Following this is the Rajaham where the bride places her hands in the groom’s and her brother pours rice into the cup of her hands. Together the bride and groom offer rice to the fire by throwing it in.

With the Gath Bandhan, the bride’s chuney is tied to her groom’s scarf as a symbol of their union.

SATH PHERE

In the Sath Phere the bride and groom take seven (or four) steps or make seven (or four) laps around the havan together while reciting a vow for each.  Among the Hindu communities in the world, each step may mean something different.  But simply put, the the first step is for respect and honor towards each other, the second for strength to weather their problems together, the third for prosperity for their household, the fourth for wisdom, the fifth for children, the sixth for health, and the seventh for affection and a lasting companionship.

In some regions, instead of taking seven steps together the bride touches seven beetlenuts or stones with her right toe.

The Sath Phere is usually one of the most anticipated parts of the wedding and signals that the ceremony is winding down.  After the couple completes their Sath Phere, for the Surya Darshanand Dhruva Darshan they look to the sun to seek blessings for a creative and passionate life and to the polar star (the north star) to remain steadfast.

Following this the parents of both the bride and groom bless the couple and sprinkle them with rose water.  The groom then applies the sindoor, a red powder, to the parting in his bride’s hair.  He also strings the mangalsutra around her neck.  This necklace made up of gold and black beads is meant to be worn always by the bride as a symbol of her marriage (like a wedding ring!).

The couple together, in the Ashirvada,  seek blessings from their parents by touching the feet of their parents.

And that’s the end of the ceremony! On to the reception and the rest of it.

Its glad to shoot a wedding with the most beautiful Bride Ayushi and the Handsome Groom Naresh.

ENGAGEMENT CEREMONY 

By AV Creative Photography | 9650664996

The engagement ceremony is an important pre-wedding ritual in Indian cultures, where the would-be-bride and the bridegroom-to-be come face to face and are formally betrothed to each other by their families. The Hindu tradition of ‘Vagdanam’ dates back to Vedic ages, and it involves the groom’s family giving their words to the bride’s family that they will accept their daughter and will be responsible for her future wellbeing. It is sort of an exchange of pledges between the families and a chance of getting to know each other’s customs or rituals. 
A ring is presented as an engagement gift by a partner to their prospective spouse when they propose marriage or directly after a marriage proposal is accepted. It represents a formal agreement to future marriage.
A couple in a committed relationship may give each other and wear pre-engagement rings, also called friendship or promise rings. Neither the engagement nor any other ring is worn during the wedding ceremony, when the wedding ring is put by the groom on the finger of the bride as part of the ceremony, and sometimes by the bride onto the groom’s finger.

 Engagement Ceremony

The engagement ceremony is an important pre-wedding ritual in Indian cultures where the would-be-bride and the bridegroom-to-be come face to face and are formally betrothed to each other by their families. The Hindu tradition of ‘Vagdanam’ dates back to Vedic ages, and it involves the groom’s family giving their words to the bride’s family that they will accept their daughter and will be responsible for her future wellbeing. It is sort of an exchange of pledges between the families and a chance of getting to know each other’s customs or rituals. In historic times, this ritual involved elaborate announcements in case of Royalties. In Rajput traditions, this betrothal generally takes place soon after the birth of a girl so as to ward of other suitors.

Wedding

India, a land of extensive cultures, languages, religions, festivals and traditions brings along with it weddings, similarly rich in history and a subject worth immense exploration. Its true, more literally in India, when they say you don’t just marry your partner, you marry his/her family as well. Indians believe very strongly in the faith of  ‘marriages being made in heaven’ thus arranged marriages make up the larger portion of Indian weddings than love marriages where the latter in many cases involve a bond between two different religions or cultures. A country where family values, love and respect for parents and elders still marks as an important foundation for growing up, youngsters yet observe the dedication to give the responsibility of finding a bride or groom  to the elders. Though this is a more prominent occurrence, Indian weddings have evolved over the years and youngsters are opting for a partner of their own choice.
