Traditional Bangladeshi Muslim Wedding, "Nikah" , Ceremony by Indian Wedding Photography Sydney
The morning of 29th Jan 2011, Dipti and I were invited to shoot Afsana and Manun's Nikah which was traditional Bangladeshi-Muslim wedding ceremony at Hillsdale, Sydney. It was a clear bright day which assisted in bringing out bright and vibrant colours of Afsana and Manun's traditional wedding dresses. All members of the family and the friends were really friendly and gave us a feeling that we were shooting our own family. Mother of the bride took great care of all the guests and us. We enjoyed a lot of "Mishthi" which were Bangladeshi/Bengali sweets-Dipti's favourite.
Afsana looked gorgeous in her red embroidered Sari and all her jwellery. She was running a little late with her "getting ready" part as most to-be-brides do. Dipti was quick to assist her with her hair and assist her getting ready for the Nikah. Afsana had a lovely friend who was assisting her with everthing and was with her during the entire wedding.
The wedding ceremonies and formalities only took a little over an hour, but we will remember the moments and the people for a life-time.
Afsama and Mamun, wish you a very happy and successful married life.

This gives everyone a chance to know who is going to be the groom of one of the girls of their village. This ceremony is usually a symbol of pride for the bride's parents who are very proud of the to-be son-in-law and would like to advertise this emotion to the entire village. However, Fuleku (namesake only) tradition for the below blog is where the bride (to-be) is invited for dinner to her sister's (or some other female relative like aunty) place prior to the wedding. This is supposed to be a very casual evening with lots of dances, extensive palette of cuisine and lots of banter between the sisters and their husbands. Hemangi's wedding was in the town of Jamnagar in the state of Gujarat. However, her Fuleku ceremony took place in t

Indian Weddings are vibrant, musical and loaded with religious and traditional ceremonies/rituals. Grandeur, a variety of food, color, music, dancing and fun are seamlessly blended with culture and heritage in Indian weddings. Each ritual has a story or a deep meaning to it. This chapter of the blog will discuss one of the traditional rituals of 'Fishing the Ring. I have seen this ritual performed in Gujarati, Punjabi and Tamil Weddings and always brings a lot of applauds and laughter from the newly wed and the guests. When the couple appears as man and wife before the family gathering for the first time, the big question is who will be the dominant person in their relationship. The game/ritual of ' Fishing the Ring' is conducted to answer this question. One of the newlywed's rings is placed in a pot of milk (or water mixed with various spices to make the water opaque). and asking the couple to 'fish'. Whoever finds the ring first i
