I attended a Hindu marriage.The bride is doing her final year degree to become an Ayurvedic doctor. The bridegroom is doing his post graduation in Ayurveda. Both of them will finish their studies next year and will jointly set up a practice.
The initial but brief ceremony took place in a temple. I could not witness this ceremony because I was late. However there were several elaborate ceremonies in the reception hall which I attended. Please click on the photos for a larger view.

Look at jewelry. The parents pride themselves in decorating their daughter with gold jewelry at the time of wedding which the bride will take as her dowry.The gorgeous saree she is wearing is a treat for the eyes.This is a typical Kerala saree worn by Malayalees at the time of wedding.
Wow!The flowers,gold jewelry,the gold bordered saree are a treat for the eyes.sThe bride groom is always in a simple dress in typical Kerala style.The focus is on the bride.
