Traditional wedding in Hyderabad

When the opportunity came up for us to attend Sai and Ramya's wedding in India, we grabbed it without any second thoughts. It turned out to be a fascinating ceremony which lasted an entire week.

First, we went to the mehendhi party at the bride's house.
 The mehendi artists from Rajasthan were amazing.

It was a first for me and I was so thrilled.
 

 The Hindu wedding ceremony took place two days later at a hotel. It began at 7am and lasted 6 hours.  It was a real eye-opener and for those who are interested to know the details, I found an excellent article here -The hindu wedding ceremony.
 
 We also attended two dinners, hosted separately by the bride and groom's families.
