An Unusual Affair!! Dream Day!!! :)




A Typical Iyer Wedding would be inside a mandapam and range from 3 to god knows how many days. But with the changing times, The number of days range from 1 to 3 days. When I say 1 day - it will be for whole 1 day with the main ceremony at a time and different religious ceremonies surrounding it!!



Receptions are also equally a grand and monotonous affair, with a queue standing near the stage to meet Groom-Bride and to mark their attendance by posing for the photo.But Exceptions are everywhere!!


And that was what witnessed in JeyaMahal Palace in Bangalore on 12th September!!!


Muhurtham - 10.30 am to 12 pm

Venue - Open Ground in Jeyamahal palac









So starting off with a small religious ceremony from Bride's side kick started the marriage ceremony!!!





Kasi Yatra




Malai Matral






Oonjal



Mangalya Dharanam



Saptapadi










And the Reception - An evening with them - No stage, they went around meeting everyone :)







And what's a wedding without feast?? A mix and match of food items of South!! So a non-foodie, thats me, also had nothing to complain about!! :D :D :D (Now don't ask me menu :roll:)




A few Random Snaps -






And the Family :D -


P.S - Finally posting this :) All the pics are copyrighted!
