One of the greatest things about being a wedding photographer is the fact, that we get to share  beautiful, meaningfully rich moments, filled with love and happiness that inspire. And today we´re coming back with lovely Sravanthi and Kimihiro, and their Hindu Wedding held at the Radha Krishna Temple in Lisbon.
Unlike most weddings that we get to photograph, the ceremony actually started before the bride and a groom´s arrival, where Sravanthi and Kimihiro´s parents officially met at an engagement ceremony, where they exchanged gifts. It was followed by the groom´s arrival, accompanied by his family and received by the bride´s parents who then escorted him to the mandapam, where all the wedding rituals were going to  be performed.
The excitement grew as stunningly looking Sravanthi descended to the mandapan, accompanied by her brother and sister in law, and welcomed by her proud and loving parents.
One of our favourite highlights were the sacrament of Talambralu, where the couple took turns in pouring rice on each other´s heads, which meant to denote the couple´’s desire for happiness, enjoyment and contentment. It followed by Jay Mala ritual of exchanging flower garlands by placing them on each other necks,  much like the exchange of wedding rings in the western wedding ceremony. This ritual carries an important significance and implies mutual acceptance and synthesis of  the bride and the groom´s souls.
We´ve felt so privileged and honoured to be documenting those profoundly important moments of Sravanthi and Kimihiro´s life as a couple, and now a new family, and the harmonious blending of those two cultures present at the event.
This is only the second blog post to celebrate their multi-day wedding. Look out for Part 2 of their fabulous and fun symbolic wedding at Penha Longa.
