Himachali Wedding…

…or as much i could capture of it.

I have inherent issues with the so called “big fat indian wedding”. But, then again, there are people who prefer such weddings, so what can one say.

But this himachali wedding was really a pleasant surprise. It was a smallish wedding, very low key. The wedding-eve party at the groom’s house was on the rooftop of his village home, in the hills, with an amazing view. There were no professional caterers, the whole village pitched in to cook. The music was no blaring hindi cinema songs – musicians played the soothing bagpiper! very cool, i thought.
