P&P's traditional rajasthani nikasi in Ratannagar, "making of the groom"

 

I had covered their cousin's wedding 4 years back. Never did I imagine that I would be getting another chance to meet the extended family and yet another opportunity to capture a rustic, simple and heart-touching wedding story. I LOVE such weddings purely because they are sans any facade. There is so much happening at any time that it is a challenge to slice out meaningful yet alluring frames. It is a crazy swirl of emotions, customs & practices.

There are a ton of images that I love from this wedding, so I am going to go easy on the eyes by splitting the story into 2 parts. 

This one is all about the "Making of the groom" - groom's nikasi

Keep watching this space for the 2nd leg of this simple and rustic yet beautiful wedding!
