The Indian Wedding Baraat - What Does it Involve?

There are few things that stand out in the average Western mind when contemplating an Indian wedding than the traditional Baraat ceremony. This extravagant event brings the groom to the final ceremony in style - usually a large horse or elephant. Here are some things you should know before witnessing your first Baraat ceremony.

Tradition

The Baraat is a common South Asian ceremony, utilized by a multitude of faiths in order to make certain that the community knew that a wedding was happening at that very moment. A wide variety of vehicles and animals are used, from old cars to elephants. The important thing is that the groom and his family must make a splashy arrival to wherever the bride and her family are waiting.

Upon arrival, the bride’s family applies a special dye to his forehead and perform a ceremony, known as Aarti, in order to ward off the “evil eye.” The final step is where he completed the Milni ceremony with the bride’s male relatives.

Purpose

This ceremony is the final step in ensuring that the bride’s family accepts the wedding and proposed marriage. Both sides of her family have roles to play, during which they individually give their blessing on the union.

It is also where the equivalent of a dowry is presented, often a small token in the form of money. This part has been phased out of many modern wedding ceremonies, replaced by a general event where members of both sides of the family give gifts to each other.

Modern Take

The ceremony has grown with modern society, taking into account changing tastes and the fact that it is nearly impossible to take over a decent chunk of the city for an impromptu parade.

Now this ceremony is carefully planned, with details checked by local authorities well in advance. Instead of having a band, music is provided by a DJ and dhol players while vehicles often replace animals.

Vehicles Instead of Animals

This change is especially common in jurisdictions that have very strict animal use laws. Many people find it easier to simply rent an antique car and decorate it in lieu of obtaining all the permits and hiring a cleaning crew for the inevitable accidents.  Having an Elephant or Horse, though, still does occur and really adds to the ceremony!

Merging Local Bits of Culture

Many Baraat ceremonies, especially those that occur in the United States and other western states, typically include local points of interest during the procession. For instance, driving alongside the beach or near a famous park/waterfall. Since vehicles do not tire, and can go faster, it opens up the ceremony to include things never before considered possible.

Have Fun!

A Baraat ceremony started off as a serious event that ensured the legitimacy of the marriage in the eyes of the community. It has evolved to become one of the most fun-filled events for the groom, giving him and his family the opportunity to show their excitement and joy over the rapidly approaching wedding ceremony.

For participants, it is important to have a good idea as to how long it will take, the stops along the way, and how loud it will be. Make certain you wear comfortable clothing suitable for the event and bring hearing protection in case the music is too loud!

For the average Westerner, the Baraat ceremony is what pops into mind when they think of Indian culture. This hallmark ceremony, integral for many couples on their wedding day, has adapted with the times to become something that can be highly customized for each special day. Check with the newlyweds to learn more about how they will add their own spin to this special ceremony.

Malibu, CA Indian Wedding by Global Photography

I am still in love with Maharani Milli and Arvin's Indian wedding at the Calamigos Ranch. Opulent. Majestic. Those are just a few words to describe the couple's s jaw-dropping wedding reception. For her grand finale, the bride slipped into a royal blue lengha with all the right trimmings. Dolled Up by Lulu created a high impact makeup look that was equal parts fabulous and charming. The couple was whisked away by Yogi Patel who captured some lovely and intimate outdoor shots before the party officially began. Design by Ashley draped the spacious ballroom with such grand elegance and designed a sweetheart stage for the ages. Guests were treated with mouthwatering eats from Manohar Delhi Palace before being swept onto the dance floor for a night full of dancing and fun. Ambiance AV knows how to throw a party and didn't disappoint! And for fun, this couple had a Ferris wheel to entertain their guests! Check out all the other lovely images by Global Photography in our gallery with Avec Lumiere Productions behind the video lens. 

See you next week!

Malibu, CA Indian Wedding by Global Photography

I have to admit that I am completely in awe of today's Indian wedding feature shot by Yogi Patel of Global Photography. Yogi is a Northern California Indian wedding photographer that has truly mastered the craft. Milli and Arvin held their outdoor Indian wedding at the Calamigos Ranch. The unmistakable work of Dolled Up By Lulu is scattered across my screen, and I have absolutely no complaints. Glowing skin and bold, red lips are my favorite combination in Indian wedding makeup artistry. Event designer Design by Ashley paired a rainbow coalition of bright hues with ivory white linen for a sophisticated take on Indian wedding color and design. The backdrop of the shrubbery just added to the enticement of this outdoor Indian wedding décor! I have all the Pinterest worthy pics captured by the ever so talented Global Photography in our curated gallery with all the live action spearheaded by Avec Lumiere Productions

Malibu, CA Indian Wedding by Global Photography

Happy Friday loves! Today's feature was celebrated in one of my favorite cities in So Cal - Malibu! With the near-perfect weather (hello sunny skies) and the beach at a distance, I am so elated to bring you all the special memories captured by Global Photography. When Milli began planning her Indian wedding extravaganza, she brought on Neetu Malhotra to help spearhead planning and design. Eventually, the plan began to take shape with some top Indian wedding vendors including Manohar Delhi Palace, Ambiance AV, and the impeccable Dolled Up by Lulu. The pre-festivities kicked off and I knew at once that all of Milli's Indian wedding outfits were going to be on point! Imagine my excitement when I found out that Avec Lumiere Productions captured all the live action! Until I debut the cinematic action, head into our gallery where I promise you there will be inspiration on sight!
