A traditional Indian/Hindu Wedding
A real Indian/Hindu wedding in Greece
I feel very fortunate that I had the opportunity to design and organize an Indian/Hindu wedding, my chance to approach another culture, which is very dear to me. It was an experience I’ll never forget.
The meaning of an Indian/Hindu Ceremony
According to the Vedic Vashnay tradition, the Hindu weddings embodies the ideals of spiritual strength, a moral and disciplined lifestyle, piety, selflessness and a divinity of love. The ceremony symbolizes the linking of two souls into one harmonious whole.
In Hindu tradition the ceremony is held in a Mandap (Vedi) supported by four pillars that represent the four goals of life as prescribed by the ancient Vedic scriptures.
The four pillars of the Mandap also represent the bride and groom’s parents under whose blessings the couple will remain.
The couple vow to:
Always have faith in the divine
Always show love and compassion towards one another
Help in each other’s good deeds Strive to keep their minds pure and virtuous Be strong and righteous
Show respect and affection towards their parents and families
Raise their children to be strong in body and mind
Welcome and honour guests who come into their home
The party lasted till the early hours next day..
elephants are very dear animals to Indians, they bring luck. There were plenty all over !
