Jessica and Amit’s recent wedding festivities spanned three counties. They had events in Surrey, Essex and Kent. A few days before Jessica’s Asian wedding in Three Rivers Golf and Country Club in Essex, the family did the Ganesh Pooja at her home to remove any obstacles from the wedding events. During the Ganesh Pooja, Jessica’s parents offered milk, sweets, and blessings to Lord Ganesh in exchange for his blessings.
The pithi ceremony was also conducted and this is where Jessica’s mother, aunts, and friends rubbed tumeric based paste on her feet, knees, arms, shoulders and face to make her skin radiant and beautiful for her wedding day. All these traditions are part of the traditional Hindu wedding and we enjoy this part of the Indian wedding photography. These images show the Ganesh pooja and pithi ceremonies. Look out for photos from the other ceremonies soon!
