A traditional tamizh mudaliar wedding begins with the Pandakaal where both the families offer prayers to god for a joyous, uninterrupted wedding. This ritual happens a day before the wedding. The Muhurtam day begins with ‘Maapilai Azhaipu’ where the brother or uncle of the bride invites the groom to marry the bride and is welcomed by the bride’s family in a pompous manner.

The morning of the wedding signifies the biggest day of the couples’ lives and a decorated bamboo or ‘pandal’ is installed to mark the beginning of festivities. After which the bride performs the ‘Mahalakshmi Pooja’ seeking blessings for her big day followed by  the Padha Poojai is the performed where they wash the parents’ feet to show gratitude to them. Then, the Kasi Yatra took place where the groom gets ready for the pilgrimage, but is stopped by the bride’s brother requesting him to marry her.

After these rituals, the couple gets ready for the muhurtam while the groom’s family cook pongal in a clay pot, this ritual is called the mania pongal. The Muhurtam begins with the priest lighting the sacred fire and conducting the Ganapati homam, seeking blessings of Lord Ganesha after which the bride is handed over to the groom – kannikadamnam, the most integral part of the wedding. The groom then ties the ‘mangalayam’ thread and rice dipped in turmeric is showered upon the couple as an act of blessing the couple. That’s the moment; two souls are tied together forever. After this there are a few more traditions that are done to conclude the wedding.

All the beautiful moments from this traditional wedding were captured by Arun Titan Studio. Jaishree wore a green-blue kanjeevarm before the muhurtam and chose traditional Kemp jewelry. The jewelry fit in perfectly with her traditional muhurtam cotton saree. She teamed her muhurtam saree with a fuss-free puffed sleeve green blouse and we absolutely adored her classic muhurtam look.

For the Reception, Jaishree wore a brown and orange, velvet sheer lehenga. Velvet and sheer and two fabrics that have been trending for a while now and together they’re a classic. The hair and make-up for the bride was done by Ibrahim and it’s nothing, but perfect. Harish looked dapper in his blue tuxedo with a subtle hint of maroon. The little details from the wedding and all the traditions have left us in awe of this beautiful real wedding.
