We make no secret of the fact that we love to shoot people in love . And also love cultures and documenting different marriage cultures, so this post is a perfect combination of a college love story and a gorgeous Oriya Wedding.
It was love story between roll no 413 and roll 438 of an engineering college at jamshedpur. And after waiting for long years nothing could make them happier then to share their love as with friends and family and finally take the next step as a married couple.
The wedding took place at the Temple city of India Bhubaneshwar 🙂 . The most amazing part of this wedding was blowing of conch shells and ululation(wish i had recorded the sound)
Just loved the detailing – Soft fabric print, vintage style welcome design and the lights all around the house. The moment I enter Sanjana’s house I could hear the hustle, bustle of happy people around.
The stage was all set for a mind blowing Sangeeth and Look at the energy of the lovely ladies 🙂
Checkout the Energy 🙂
The wedding day started with Diya Mangala Puja . Diya Mangula puja was conducted at a Devi`s temple. Bride`s bangles, toe ring, sindoor and sari is offered to the Goddess.
Ashish and his family had arrived from their home town. There was a grand welcome to his family with some foot tapping Dhol music.
That’s Sanjana’s cousin awaiting Ashish entry 🙂
Small welcome ritual was performed.
After all the Music, Dance, Dhol the time had arrived where Ashish and Sanjana were going to be hitched.
Brilliant arrangements were made. . I could just go capturing the arrangements for hours 🙂
The stars drew light across the night sky in the city of Bhubaneshwar, and suddenly there was silence, admiration’s and wooing 🙂 .
Now you must be knowing what caused the admiration’s and the wooing 🙂 . Sanjana looked beautiful .
Less than a few meters away from the silence there was clamor. It was the Barati or popularly known as Barajatri in Oriya.
Upon arrival of the baraat Ashish was greeted with aarti followed by a Tilak.
Just loved the way Sanjana checked out Ashish as he approached the Mandap .
After reception they were presented with topor and they were all set to get united.
Ashish and Sanjana were seated in front of Agni(sacred fire) in the Yajna ceremony.
Most important part of the wedding “Haata Ganthi”. We all know it as “Saath Phere”.
As Ashish dipped a ring into the sindoor, ululation and sound of conch shells echoed in the mandap. Now they are legally united 🙂

Ending this post with another interesting and my favorite ritual “Karudi Khela”
I had a whale of a time being there and capturing your wedding. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Wishing you both a Happy Married life.
