Weddings in India are elaborate, colourful, and last for several days. In most cases, they are arranged by the parents of the bride and groom.

Pre-wedding ceremonies include the engagement and the arrival of the groom's party at the residence of the bride in a procession called the Baraat and pictured in the photos. When the groom arrives, he and the bride meet and exchange garlands of flowers in a ceremony called the Jaimala. Well-wishers then present gifts. The wedding ceremony begins later.
