Ada & Anirudh
The Shagun Tilak Roka Ceremony or Engagement Ceremony marks the beginning of the Sikh wedding celebrations. It is also called Tilak
A wedding ceremony, held at the beautiful Hollywood Gurudwara in Cantonment Pune, as Ada and Anirudh are asked to bow in front of a Holy Scripture text called the Guru Granth, while members of the wedding party sing hymns to seek God’s blessings. Because this is a holy portion of the wedding, the marriage official reads the couple their marital obligations as the couple walks around the Holy Scripture four times. After the end of each circle, the couple bows down to agree. At the end of the ceremony, a sweet pudding called Kara parshad is passed around to all of the guests. This dessert is made with whole wheat flour, butter and sugar.
The reception portion, which is during the evening, is full of dancing.
We had an absolute blast capturing all the functions that constitute a Sikh Wedding and we take this opportunity to congratulate Ada & Anirudh a beautiful life ahead, a life full of love, happiness, peace & prosperity.
