SHYAMAL WEDS NANDINI - NOV 23, 2006 - CHENNAI

 

Welcome to our wedding album. We have put together a set of 30 photographs to share with you the magical moments of the most important day of our lives. A more detailed description with many more photographs can be found here.

 

There are several different styles of Indian Hindu weddings. Ours was a traditional South Indian Iyer wedding spanning two days. Iyer weddings comprise several rituals - vedic, puranic and worldly. Weddings comprise reception dinners, much like in the west. On day 1, The bride and the groom perform rituals that prepare them, or qualify them to be wed. A reception party is typically held the same night. The actual wedding ceremony is performed on day 2. Sometimes more reception parties follow.
