What is more interesting and arresting than an Indian wedding? The photographs of the same Indian wedding!

Fun, colorful, bursting with joie-de-vivre, rapturous, vibrant, exciting and emotional – these are the few adjectives you can easily attach to the amazing shots and pictures you would get from an Indian wedding.

Needless to say, the shades, range and depth of human emotions – from that of a loving groom eyeing his bride askance to the moist eyes of the parents ready to give away the apple of their eyes – are splendid.

Then, someone would question – why, are these joys and feelings only a part of an Indian wedding? Aren’t they there in each and every wedding? Well, what’s so different, then, about a glorious, big fat Indian wedding?

Yes, the sentiment, warmth, fervor and spirit are all there, but in an Indian set-up, it all seems to take on a different soul, a different profundity. Or, maybe not! Maybe, it’s all in the eyes, in the perspective.

Or maybe, it all gets a little deeper, given the magnificent Indian wedding finery – the embellishments, the decorations, the jewel tones and the ornate wedding wear. The rustle of the silk, the jingle of the bangles, the wrap of a wedding saree and the floor-skimming shimmer of a wedding lehenga…aren’t all these breathtaking!

They are…and that’s why we have taken a picturesque route to take you through the various steps of an Indian wedding. It’s a story in pictures. Have a look –

The bride’s first step – at the venue…The dauntingly difficult-to-walk-in looking stiletto and the mehendi – fuelled to perfection by the matching maroon of the bridal lehenga.

This demure bride, making her way to the stage. She is escorted by her brothers, who cover her with a metaphorical chaadar (cover) that is meant to shade her from the troubles and evils of the world.

This ethereally beautiful picture covering an after-wedding ceremony. It’s a little game, where the man and his wife try and find a coin/ ring, dipped in milk with strewn rose petals. Heavenly!
