Desi wedding...big day nuptials

Thursday, August 4, 2011

My little sis N was one of the most beautiful brides I have ever seen (and I swear I'm not just saying that because she is reading this). Seriously, her & her new hubby G made a stunning couple and they were happy...sweltering from all the heat...but happy and it showed. The day was festive and full of colour. We all got dressed up in all our sparkle, albeit melted in the sun, but it didn't really matter because the day was perfect for N & G.
The bride's attire for the ceremony. Breathtaking.
She sparkled in the sun.
 I think they say the darker your mendhi (aka henna) gets the more your MIL will love you. Nice & dark N...good luck with that one.
Never enough flash for an Indian bride. Stunning pieces from a Banglez. If you look closely behind the set is another necklace that my grandmother wore at her wedding. We have been all lucky enough to wear this piece at our weddings. 
The bride needs a cool ride right? 
My kiddies dressed in their finest.
Here we are with the bride decked out in good old christmas tree outfits. Nah I kid, they were stunning and very comfortable to wear. I'm second from the left in case you were curious.
Me again behind the camera.

What the day was all about. All images via my camera (I depended on rogue photographers to capture shots that day because I was sadly way too busy to be behind the lens).
