Day 1: Sangeet

What is a Sangeet? 

A sangeet is a traditional Indian pre-wedding ceremony that is focused on music and dance. It is typically held a few days before the wedding, and is a joyous occasion where the families of the bride and groom come together to celebrate the upcoming union.

During a sangeet, guests are encouraged to participate in singing and dancing, and the event often features performances by professional musicians and dancers. The songs and dances are often chosen to reflect the cultural traditions of the families, and may include a mix of traditional and contemporary music.

In addition to the music and dancing, a sangeet may also include other traditional Indian wedding customs, such as the exchange of gifts and the application of mehndi (henna) on the hands and feet of the bride and groom.

The sangeet is an important part of the wedding celebrations, and is seen as a way for the families to come together and bond before the big day. It is a joyous and festive occasion that is meant to bring good luck and blessings to the couple, and is an opportunity for everyone to have fun and let loose before the solemnity of the wedding day.

Day 2: Mehndi/Haldi

What is a mehndi?

A mehndi is a form of temporary body art that originated in ancient India. It is typically applied to the hands and feet using a paste made from the crushed leaves of the henna plant. The paste is applied to the skin in intricate designs, and when it dries, it leaves a reddish-brown stain on the skin.

Mehndi is traditionally used for weddings and other special occasions, as the reddish-brown stain is believed to bring good luck and blessings to the person wearing it. In modern times, mehndi has also become a popular form of body art and self-expression, with people of all ages and backgrounds incorporating it into their beauty routines.

The process of applying mehndi can be quite intricate and time-consuming, with some designs taking several hours to complete. The art of applying mehndi is often passed down through generations and is considered a form of cultural expression.

In addition to its cultural and traditional significance, mehndi has also been shown to have potential health benefits. The henna plant has natural cooling properties, and the application of mehndi can help to soothe the skin and reduce inflammation. It has also been used in traditional medicine to treat a variety of ailments, such as headaches and fevers.

Overall, mehndi is a unique and beautiful form of body art with rich cultural and historical significance. It continues to be a popular choice for weddings and other special occasions, and is also gaining popularity as a form of self-expression and body decoration.

Frank photographed our Indian / Iranian wedding over three days. He is an exceptionally talented photographer as evidenced by the quality of his shots – he is also an absolute pleasure to have around. He made us feel incredibly at ease, and demonstrated endless patience and commitment through three long days of hard work. We recommend him unreservedly and are looking forward to the pleasure of having him with us again for future family events.
