Indian Wedding

Last weekend I had the chance to attend my first traditional Indian wedding. One of my colleagues at work had his arranged marriage. I was expecting an extravagant gathering with people riding on elephants. But since he is Buddhist, the ceremony was very simple.

It was crazy having so many children running around freely. Somewhat disorganized… Nevertheless, they made the groom feel very fancy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As soon as the two are officially married, everyone takes a handful of flowers and throws them towards the center stage.

One of the coolest things is that everyone from the office came to support my colleague. Everything is really based on a family structure in India. Even former employees came.

I had one of my colleague’s children playing tricks on me.
