Featured Bengali Wedding Ceremony: Roseate and Samrat3 Comments Featured Wedding, Traditions, Wedding Ceremonies, Wedding Videography
Today we are featuring a super fun wedding of Rose and Samrat by Katie and Joshua Studios.
Rose, born in Fiji, and Samrat, in Houston, first met on a blind date. Five years later they got married in a traditional Bengali ceremony. The wedding celebrations were a three-day event full of love, laughter, and colorful traditions. Friends and family were a big part of the couple’s wedding.
Rose wore a beautiful sari from Kolkota, and Samrat donned the traditional Bengali Dhoti/ Kurta (outfit) and Topor (headgear). Both bride and the groom had special traditional make up for the ceremony.
Some of the video highlights:
* Love how Rose and Samrat talk ecstatically about their story while leaving from the wedding ceremony.
* Bengali Weddings have all aspects of a Hindu Wedding Ceremony, and some more. From the sounds of conch shell to the ululation by women attending the wedding: Rose and Samrat’s wedding had all the traditional elements of a Bengali Wedding Ceremony.
* In traditional style, Rose was carried to the ceremony on a low stool or pidi her face covered by paan or betel leaves, by her brothers/ male cousins. This tradition is also known as Saat Paak, as the bride is taken around the groom on the stool seven times.
* This wedding is full of beautiful emotions: while you can hear the joy and happiness in the voices of friends making toasts to the couple, you can see the tears in Rose’s mothers eyes during the vidaii.
