Choora pre-wedding ceremony

Posted on 13 September 2015 by

In December last year I photographed the chunni engagement ceremony for this family, and I was back again last week to photograph the next step – the choora pre-wedding ceremony. This was an intimate occasion at their home in Winchester and it was a great privilege to be with them again and witness the tradition and ritual involved. I always find it fascinating to observe different cultures, to see how differently common themes are expressed and to find the similarities in something that might seem unfamiliar. For all that the ceremony was a wonderful new experience for me, the thing that will stay with me the most is the overwhelming sense of joy, love and warmth felt from everyone on the day.
