Hindu wedding is a sacred tradition of life time marital relationship between man and woman. It is performed with the observance of several rituals and customs, which make it an elaborate affair. These ceremonies continue for several days prior to the main ceremony, know as ‘pani grahana’.

This is performed by the couple taking seven rounds of the sacred fire, know as ‘saat phere’, in the presence of a Hindu priest and amidst chanting of hymns and mantras from Hindu scriptures.
