Beautiful wedding , beautiful couple !
Capturing emotions – the overlooked and the unseen real moments are our trademark shots…
Here’s a colorful Ceylonese Wedding highlight of Dr.Surian & Dr.Sangetha, that was held at Sri Sakthi Easwary Temple, Petaling Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia. It was a traditional hindu wedding followed by the highlight you are about to watch which is a Hindu Ceremony with plenty of rich culture.
Ceylonese wedding started with the welcoming the groom. The Groom’s wedding party is greeted at the entrance by the Bride’s parents and relatives. The Tholan (Best man) washes the Groom’s feet at the entrance and for this, a gold ring is presented to him. The Groom, Tholan, Parents, and married ladies bearing auspicious gifts proceed to the manavarai(marriage dais) where the Priest awaits to perform the ceremony.
The Priest begins the ceremony and invokes Lord Ganesha, the remover of all obstacles, for his blessing and protection. This is signified by tying a saffron thread on the right wrist of the Groom.
Three married ladies perform the sowing of Navadhanyam (Nine varieties of coloured grain) in an earthern pot. This is to ensure the fertility of the union. The priest then requests the same ladies to bring Agni (scared fire) who is the main witness and purifier of the wedding rites. This is to ensure that the wedding proceeds unimpeded.
The Bride’s first entrance is led to the manavarai , by her Tholi (Bridesmaid), parents and relatives. The Bride takes her place on the right side of the groom. The Bride goes through the same rituals as the Groom.
KANNIHAADHANAM (Giving Away Of The Bride)
The Bride’s father gives away the Bride to the Groom with the consent of her mother, in the presence of the Groom’s parents. The priest proclaims the names of the Bride and Groom and calls upon three generations of ancestors to bless the union. The father expresses his willingness to give his daughter away to the Groom. The Groom stands before them and expresses his willingness to accept her. The father of the Bride then places the Bride’s hands in the plam of the Groom. A married couple from the Groom’s family, takes the Koorai (Wedding Saree), Thali Kodi (marriage necklace) and bridal garlands around on a tray to obtain the blessings of the parents,relatives and friends. The Groom then gives the Koorai to the Bride to change into.
THE BRIDE’S SECOND ENTRANCE
The Bride returns to the momentous event of the marriage ceremony. The Priest takes the Thaali Kodi, blesses it and hands it to the Groom, who stands up and ties the Thaali Kodi around the Bride’s neck to the resounding beat of Drums and the Nadaswaram. Saffron coloured rice and flowers are showered upon the couple by relatives and friends. The Groom places red saffron on the knot of the Thaali Kodi and on the Bride’s forehead.
The Bride and Groom exchange garlands. The Tholan then leads the Groom who in turn holds his Bride’s hand and the Bride holding the Tholi’s hand go around the ceremonial fire.
To conclude the ceremony, the Priest blesses the newlyweds follwed by the parents and relatives, by sprinkling saffron coloured rice flowers on their knees, shoulder and head.
The bride Dr.Sangetha was simple charming and our handsome groom Dr Surian a bit shy but really smart and gentlemen. Both of them had a natural smiling face, were kind hearted and had a friendly personality. We had tons of fun with Surian & Sangatha and their family member so many emotions throughout the day as captured in the highlight !
We loved every moment, the culture and the colorful ceremony. The entire day was filled with love, joy and fun. It was a heart touching occasion with many laughter, excitement. Words may not be enough to describe what you are about to see, so sit back and enjoy our video.
