What a privilege it was to attend my nephew Leigh and his bride Meera’s Hindu wedding. The Saskatoon portion of my family and I drove from Saskatoon to Winnipeg for this wonderful event. We could not have felt more welcome as we ate and drank our way into the lives of Leigh and Meera’s families.
Spectacle, colour, ceremony, joy and love were abundant throughout the whole event. Smiles and laughter only diminished during some solemn moments of prayer. The colour and delight in the attire, the music, the food and the hospitality were something to behold.
Thank you to both families for such a wonderful event. This gallery of pictures shows the venue, the wedding and a few pictures of the banquet. Clicking on a picture will bring up a slide show.
This video attempts to capture some of the glamour and ceremony of the wedding.
