In traditional Bengali wedding,the bridegroom comes to the girlís house to marry her.As the auspicious time approaches,4-5 male memberís of the bride family take her,seated on a low stool(piri), circuling round the groom 7 times to symbolize that the bride and bridegroom are now winded up securely to each other.Finally,the bride and bridegroom come face to face and removing the 2 betel leaves covering her face all this while, make their first eye-contact, called Shubha Drishti.The two then exchange garlands,a ritual called Mala Baadal.

Stunning happy portrait Debu, looking at the make up and arm decorations it must take her hours to get ready.

Regards

A beautiful portrait, Debu, but I find that the light on her face has made her look like she has hamster cheeks Grin. Carol

The bride is just waiting for the ceremony to start. Needed more pic to substantiate the write up , at least 3 more. 1. For Seven round , 2. Suva Dristi, 3. Mala badol.

A beautiful happy portrait, but missing the very momentary expression of bride to be.
