The Story

Riding on a horse with a sword in his hand, Varun made a Maharaja-like entry to make Priyanjali his bride. The groom and his entourage danced their way in the Baraat ceremony, enjoying every bit of this Bengali wedding.  Making an entry no one would forget!

At the Gaye Holud (Haldi) Ceremony, the groom’s face was painted in yellow, with a generous amount of turmeric paste. As a part of the Tatta, a small amount of paste from the groom’s skin, is mixed in a container, which is then sent to the bride. The families also exchanged fishes adorned with a small nath and decorated with sindoor.

During the Saat Pheras, Priyanjali wore a red and green silk saree and the groom wore a traditional bandhgala sherwani. Instead of a conical Topor, the bride wore a triangular shaped mukut and the groom went with a stylish turban, and they complimented each other perfectly!

All the fun moments from the traditional ceremonies and the wedding was captured by Vivek Tickoo from The Wedding Knights.
