Ashook and Felesha Parboo pose for a photo at their Hindu wedding ceremony after they were given Aashirvad which means blessings from the family. The guests showered the newlyweds with flowers and rice to wish the couple a long happy marriage. In photo at right, the couple is at their wedding reception. This is a huge formal party with lots of music to celebrate the successful wedding. This is the first public appearance of the bride and groom together as a couple. There are no formal traditions at the reception.

Our Hindu wedding from ceremony to reception

By Felesha Parboo. Photos by A Williams Photography. We decided to do a traditional Hindu wedding. It just seemed so much more intriguing. I prepared day and night with his family and mine. 

I left Boston approximately three years ago to be with my love Ashook Parboo. Every day I thank God for the great life that he has provided for me. Our wedding date was set for December 15, 2013.

It would give us just the right amount of time to prepare for our big day.  It was so hectic. From deciding what colour schemes to the flavour cake we wanted. My husband-to-be didn’t want to be so much involved in the preparations. He just agreed to what he thought was needed.

Choosing clothing for our Hindu wedding ceremony

We decided to do a traditional Hindu wedding. It just seemed so much more intriguing. I prepared day and night with his family and mine. Everyone helped out and everything fell into place.

Our colour scheme choices were blue and lilac. I simply had to get a red velvet wedding cake. We went to Priya’s Creation for the clothing for our wedding ceremony and decided to have a reception after which we purchased a wedding dress and suit. Everything was actually going to happen.

Days of the Hindu wedding

On the Thursday before the wedding, I had to go home in La Romaine to do my part at the ceremony. It began on Friday with saffron being rubbed on my skin by five little girls up until Sunday morning. Tassa music was enjoyed all throughout Saturday night. It turned out to be a handful and sadly I missed out on my husband’s side for the previous nights when I was not there. I heard they had a lot of fun.

The bride’s brother Anand Maharaj, left, pours pure water while the sanlalp is read which means the relationship between the bride and the groom will remain pure and unbroken as the water which is poured on their hands, a sacred gift. Felesha’s mother Gomatie Subadar, right, assists.

The Sindoor is applied to the wife Felesha by her husband Ashook at the time of marriage to imply that she is now protected by her husband and anyone who dares to harm her in any manner will have to face the husband’s wrath. A sheet is placed over the bride and groom to place the Sindoor on the bride’s head and her oldest sister Marsha Subadar Rambally must fix the Sindoor on her head to be there for her too.

We enjoyed ourselves to the fullest

After the ceremony, we were allowed to change into our reception clothes. It took a while in between all the rush from the temple to the reception hall. We enjoyed ourselves to the fullest despite a few mishaps. I wouldn’t change anything if I had the chance to do it again.

We are officially married and loving it!

With, as a final reward, the birth of a vintage.
