Homya and Mukul's Brisbane Indian wedding was a densely packed three days of Hindu wedding celebrations. When I think of Indian weddings, I think or colour and dancing, and multiple days. I think of ancient traditions and ceremonies full of deep meaning, and a rich display of culture and heritage that people can be proud of. And I think of the best wedding food ever. And more partying.
With Homya's family originating from southern India, and Mukul's family being from Punjab from the north of India, this Indian wedding had a mix of traditions. The first two days were held in Homya's family home in the south of Brisbane, and the final day's wedding ceremonies and reception were hosted at Cherbon Waters.
I'll be breaking their day up into the three parts, with a short description on the events covered that day, along with their meanings.
