Indian weddings are a colorful affair. But they are not only about grandeur and fun filled  celebrations. A South Indian Brahmin wedding has many auspicious rituals with deep rooted significance. Here you see a radiant bride decked in gorgeous  silk and adorned in beautiful  gold ornaments  and sweet smelling garlands. She is about to exchange garlands with the groom just before the ‘Muhurtham’ or the  ‘Auspicious time’  when the Mangalasutra or Thaali will be tied by the groom.The b/w tone here enhances the beauty of this wonderful moment that has been captured in amazing lighting.
