Deepti and Namar’s Baraat and Ceremony
A rare and beautiful union of the Muslim and Hindu faiths, colorful and unique
By Fabiola Clermont, Venue Sales Assistant
The Baraat began with the groom being carried by the beautiful white horse named Firecracker from our meadow through the luscious greenery on the paths and to the lakeside pavilion.
He was preceded by his spirited groomsmen dancing animatedly to music accompanied by the beating of the dhol.
Namar and his groomsmen met the bridal party on the great lawn for more dancing and then walked through the isle of petals to begin the Nikaah.
Namar had his profile concealed from Deepti by a curtain, and when they became officially married, the curtain was dropped and they saw each other for the first time as man and wife.
They exchanged their magnificent garlands for the Varmala with their immediate family members close by gazing upon them fondly.
The new bride and groom took a seat on the mandap and had their sashes tied together before taking the seven steps before the fire.
