Graham Crouch: An Indian Wedding
Ruma and Sandip Patidar and Sangita and Som Patidar were married at a big double wedding celebration in Bhopal, India .
The wedding reception precedes the marriage ceremony and follows the male procession involving male guests dancing to a DJ and drummers on the way to the reception while the groom brings up the rear on a horse or chariot.
The event also featured Som Patidar's younger sister Pinky celebrating her engagement on the day Hindu priests said was the most auspicious day of the year for nuptials.
