A new journey of togetherness

A new journey of togetherness

This picture is from my wedding in 2011. Though the Hindu Bengali wedding is full of such beautiful moments, this particular scene is a personal favorite. I feel that this frame depicts one of the most poignant moments of my marriage. For me, it signifies that two souls united by the threads of love, trust, and understanding have chosen to walk together in this new phase of life.

This post is part of the Tuesday Photo Challenge on the theme ‘Scene’ this week.

Linking up with Wordless Wednesday created by Esha and Natasha.

  1. Such a lovely picture, Sonia. Somehow, our wedding pics evoke such a mixture of memories. Joy, warmth and the trepidation of new beginnings.

    I saw the Mehndi on your hands. Such a lot of it! We have only till elbows.

    1. Thank you Sona. I totally agree with you that wedding pictures indeed make us nostalgic.
      Actually bengali weddings have no concept of mehendi. But thanks to Bollywood and people like me who have spent a lot of time outside the state, mehendi has become an integral part of our rituals too. I chose this design. Infact had one on the legs as well because I love mehendi.

      1. And here I thought that Bengalis have a lot of mehndi for the weddings because of your photo.

        I think it’s good to take traditions from different parts of the country and make them your own 🙂
