Redworth Hall Wedding photographer Urmila & John – Asian Day 2

After just managing to get back with enough time to recharge the batteries both physical and proverbial, It was up at the crack of dawn to continue with Day 2 of Urmila and Johns EPIC Asian Wedding. It had all the makings of a Bollywood Movie with the Fun , laughter, Tears, bling, vibrant colours and lots of drumming and dancing… phew!!!

The day started with ‘aye holud’ a ritual to which guests apply yellow turmeric paste to Urmila & Johns face and body …. This cleanses, softens and brightens the skin! It proved to be an emotional ceremony for Urmila and her Mum with lots of tears and love shared by all. Afterwards the ladies headed off to don their sari’s and the guys put their preparations on hold to have a game of football on Redworth Halls lawn…not sure the groundsman would approve 😉

Afterwards, the celebrations soon became obvious as the trio of drummers lead the ‘Bharat’ (grooms entrance). Dancing and chanting on their way to meet the beautiful bridesmaids waiting for a bribe from the groom. Once John handed over the cash to the joy of the bridesmaids he was then allowed to enter the ‘Mandap’ and the ceremony began.

The evening celebrations were also full of fun and heaps of testosterone as the guys competed against each other in a crazy wrestling competition otherwise knows as the ‘milni‘. However the fun didn’t stop there as the drummers raised the roof with guests and invited members of the wedding party to bust out some moves in a traditional Bhangra class!!
