This weekend I am photographing a super cool Indian wedding and it is amazing. There are so many traditions that make wonderful photos. Last night all the women's from the groom's family came and gave gifts to the bride and blessed her with rice. It was really a pretty ceremony.
The women all dip their fingers into the oil and rub it on the brides forehead then they push a few grains of rices into the oil until it sticks. Then they pick up a small bit of rice and shower her with it. It's really neat to watch.
Love this picture :)
Then after that there was a Mehndi ceremony where the brides hands and feet were covered in henna tattoos for the wedding. Tradition says that the groom's name is hidden in the intricate designs and he must find his name.
