Shirin & Bansi’s Indian Wedding – Part III

All great stories have a beginning, a middle and an end and so does our coverage of Shirin and Bansi’s destination wedding in India. Today we are pleased to present the final instalment in their three part wedding post. Today’s post features images from their beautiful wedding ceremony. Be sure to check out Part I and Part II of this epic Indian wedding if you haven’t done so already.

The day started at the hotel where we grabbed a few quick photographs of the handsome groom before we headed to the palace for Bansi’s Baraat ceremony. Bansi rode in on a beautiful white horse as friends and family danced and had a great time leading the processional from the main palace to the boat launch.

Bansi was met at the boat launch by Shirin’s family where he received blessings and was welcomed into the family. I love this shot below of Shirin’s mom giving Bansi a tweak on his nose.
