The Hindu Affair 1 of 8

I recently covered a very colorful Hindu Wedding for a lovely couple. I will be posting some of the highlights.

Kanya Agamana (Arrival of the Bride)
The Hindu ceremony takes place in a Mandap, which is a covered structure made up of pillars. The pillars represent the parents and their role in the upbringing and ongoing support of the bride and groom.
The bride is walked to the mandap by the Maternal Uncle. The bride is normally dressed in white or Red sari with embroidery in gold thread. White is for purity and red signifies abundance and fertility.

Me, three, SAVO! The colors are awesome, as is all the elaborate jewelty. I especially wonder about the significance of the white strand with the roses on the end?
SAVO: It is exceedingly slaborate I tell you. The white strand with roses is like a half garland and its traditional to were garlands at these ceremonies

Very good lighting with no reflection of the skins. Well done.
SAVO: Always difficult with indoor events/ poorly lit areas because im not a huge fan of flash photography. I used a gun and was probably lucky with my settings I guess :p
fabulous shot Savosmile
SAVO: Well thank you Tim
Very interesting!
This portrait is very nice, the colours are brilliant and the wedding dress is fabulous!
Una precioso retrato con unos colores y detalles excelentes.
