Weddings in India are filled with rituals and celebrations that continue for several days
It was later in the evening as I had just arrived in my Victorian style B&B, taking a shower I hear all those drums and instruments sounding like a parade, I am rushing out of the shower, grabbing my camera and running down to the desk of the hotel asking what’s the event. ” Oh you just missed it, it’s a wedding parade”….. Me ” So where can I see it?”…. ” well this guy can take you there on his motor bike”… I am like I’ve never been on a motor bike, scares me…. ” Oh you will be just fine”… Okay I am pulling all my trust together and get on this young guys bike, not lady like with both legs on one side, rather than getting on a horse…. A minute later I am off to an adventure my hair blowing in my face, holding on to the handle in the back, oh this guy wasn’t taking a slow ride at all….
There I get to a wedding place three times bigger than a football field
I was greeted and welcomed like a guest of the wedding. After they found out that I am a photographer they all wanted me to take pictures of them.
It started with the groom coming in on a beautifully decorated horse
Needless to say, that the groom looked so handsome , to die for, OMG the glow of happiness in his eyes……
The bride was no where in sight, she was still preparing for her great moment of appearance. So I just photographed randomly the pre ceremony festivities happening in a blast.
With this beautiful woman I shared a wonderful conversation, she invited me to stay for the entire wedding ceremony which would have taken place at around 2 am…. yet I had to say thanks for the invite but the following day I was off to another city to explore.. so I never got to see the bride
Yet I was blessed to be part of a pre wedding by surprise and the ride back on the motor cycle wasn’t scary any more at all.
