Marriage is one of the most important events in an individual’s life. It is the coming together of two individuals, two souls and two families. In the Indian context, the importance and sanctity of the wedding institution can be gauged from the fact that a large number of rituals need to be performed to accomplish it. Marriages in India are performed with utmost care, and in accordance with revered and beautiful ancient practices. To experience this as a guest is undoubtedly a rare privilege.
Indian weddings are all about beautiful and colorful ceremonies, dances and scrumptious meals. In this experience we give you a chance to be a part of the wedding. Receive a personalised invitation from the host. Dress up in ethnic Indian wear and witness the beautiful ceremony of two lovers coming together as one. If you are lucky you might just reach in time to witness the ‘Baraat’, or groom’s procession. For this, the groom arrives to the ceremony on a decorated white horse. Guests dance around him to the beat of the dhol, an Indian drum; fireworks add to the joyous atmosphere. It is an experience impossible to forget, and will give you a fine insight into the culture of India.
