Indian Wedding - Seaham Hall

Priyanka & Pradeep - Day Three - 8th October 2011

Seaham Hall, County Durham

On day three, the Hindu ceremony of Priyanka and Pradeep took place at Seaham Hall.

Yesterday's sunny weather had unfortunately been replaced by rain which meant that Prad's party procession led by four drummers to meet Pri's family had to be rerouted via a dark underpass beneath the hotel.

When Pri arrived at the Mandap escorted by her uncle, she looked stunning.

The ceremony itself was fascinating, there are so many rituals to observe and document.

Later in the evening, the 300 guests braved the rain and dashed across to the tipi. In fact, it was 6 tipi's, and the largest we've ever seen.

The generator broke down during the speeches which resulted in some impromptu dancing led by a lone drummer. How we managed to get anything at all is a great feat in itself as it was pitch black.

At the end of the night we drove back to Durham for a good night's sleep before our return journey to Dorset.
