Hindu Wedding Ceremony

THE HINDU WEDDING CEREMONY
Chanted by the priest in Sanskrit verse, the prayers that compose the Hindu wedding ceremony are derived from Vedic scriptures that are more than four thousand years old.
The ceremony takes place inside a four pillared canopy structure called a Mandap.

1. BARAAT (GROOM'S PROCESSION)

The groom arrives on a decorated horse accompanied by his family and friends in the form of a parade.

2. MILNI (GREETING THE PARTY)

The bride's family receives the groom and his family. Family members embrace and garland one another.

3. VAR PUJA (WELCOMING OF THE GROOM)

The groom arrives at the site of the ceremony and is greeted by the bride’s family. The sister of the bride welcomes the groom with an aarti, or prayer, and welcomes him to the ceremony

4. GANESH PUJA (WORSHIP OF LORD GANESH)

The ceremony starts with a prayer to Lord Ganesh, the remover of obstacles.
His blessings are requested for peace and harmony to prevail during the ceremony and for an auspicious beginning for the couple.

5. KANYA AAGMAN (ENTRANCE OF THE BRIDE)

The bride arrives, escorted by her sisters and bridesmaids, to the site of the ceremony.

6. JAI-MALA (EXCHANGE OF GARLANDS)

The bride and groom exchange garlands symbolising their willingness to accept each other.

7. KANYA DAAN (GIVING AWAY THEIR DAUGHTER)

The bride is given away by her father through the joining of his daughter and the groom’s hands. The bride’s parents pray for the happiness of the bride and groom.

8. GATH BANDHAN & PHERE (CIRCLING THE SACRED FIRE)

The bride and groom are joined by tying their scarves together, symbolising the bond of marriage. Agni, the Fire God, is invited as witness to the union, and the couple circle an open fire.

9. SAPTAPADI (TAKING SEVEN STEPS)

The Bride and Groom take seven steps to represent seven marriage vows, providing for:

1. Substantial Food
2. Good Health
3. Wealth and Prosperity
4. Happiness
5. Family and children
6. Self-restraint and longevity
7. A close union between the couple

10. MANGALSUTRA & SINDOOR DHARAN (NECKLACE AND VERMILLION)

The groom places sindoor, or vermillion powder, along the parting of the bride’s hair, and welcomes her into his life. He then places a Mangalsutra (necklace) around her neck.
These are both symbols of a married woman.

11. AASHIRWAAD (PRAYER AND BLESSINGS)

Once the wedding rituals have been completed, the couple touches the feet of their parents and the priest, asking for their Aashirwaad, or blessings.

12. VIDAAI (DEPARTURE OF BRIDE AND GROOM)

This moment marks the departure of the bride from her parental house. She throws rice over her head, conveying gratitude and blessings to her parents and family.
The bride and groom leave as a married couple.

Sikh Wedding Ceremony

THE SIKH WEDDING CEREMONY

BARAAT (GROOMS ARRIVAL) 

The groom, his family, friends and guests, known as The Baraat, arrive at the venue.
The priest, Giani Ji, will say a prayer, Ardaas, for the couple. You are kindly reminded to please cover your heads during the prayers.

MILINI (FAMILIES EMBRACE)

The bride’s family then welcomes the Groom’s family. Family members are introduced to one another and exchange greetings, known as Milini.
Following this, guests will be invited to have breakfast.

After breakfast guests will move to the prayer hall. You are kindly requested to remove your shoes and cover your head before entering the prayer hall.
Guests will be sat on the floor facing the holy book, the Sri Guru Granth Sahib. Men sit on the right and ladies on the left.
Please take care not to sit with your legs outstretched towards the holy book as this is perceived as disrespectful.

ANAND KARAJ (BLISSFUL UNION)

The Anand Karaj is the religious Sikh marriage ceremony; it translates to ‘blissful union’.

At the start of the ceremony, the groom enters and sits in front of the holy book, the Sri Guru Granth Sahib, followed by the bride’s entrance with her family. The bride, groom and their parents stand in prayer, Ardaas, and the religious singers, Raggis, sing sacred hymns, Kirtan, from the Sri Guru Granth Sahib, for the success of the marriage.

PALLE DI RASAM (GIVING AWAY THE BRIDE)

During this part of the Anand Karaj, the bride’s father hands one end of the groom’s scarf, Palla, into the hands of the bride, signifying their marital bond and the
formal ‘giving away’ of the bride.

LAVAAN (THE FOUR WEDDING ROUNDS)

The four verses of marriage hymns, Lavaan, are read by the Priest from the holy Sri Guru Granth Sahib and then sung by the religious singers in sequence.
As the verses are sung, the groom leads the bride around the Sri Guru Granth Sahib. The bride’s brothers guide her around the Sri Guru Granth Sahib during the Lavaan.
Each round signifies the stages that lead to the union of husband and wife and union with God:

The first verse describes embarking on a new beginning.
The second verse describes the feelings of joy and love.
The third verse describes the bride and husband’s devotion to one another.
The fourth verse described the perfect state of love between the couple: ‘two minds uniting in one soul’
Once the four verses are completed the groom and bride are married!

ANAND SAHIB & HUKAMNAMA (PRAYERS)

The congregation then stands to join in the final prayers, the Anand Sahib (the ‘Song of Bliss’) – a hymn that signifies the union. The ceremony then concludes with the reading of a verse from the holy Sri Guru Granth Sahib, followed by the serving of communion, Prasad (a blessed sweet), to the whole congregation.

SAGAAN (FINAL BLESSINGS)

The groom and brides’s parents bless the newlywed couple with a long and happy married life together.
Relatives and friends line up behind the bride and groom to congratulate them and share their blessings. The congregation will then be invited to have lunch.

DOLI (FAREWELL TO THE BRIDE)

The groom and his family prepare to take the bride back to their family home. Look out for the bride’s sisters putting the groom to the test with
traditional games to see how much he thinks his bride is worth!
The bride’s family then bids her farewell among tears of joy and sadness. This symbolises the bride leaving her family home to move to the groom’s home.

Thank you for sharing our special day with us!
