You should take a minute and go to Ruth's blog at: or click here: Ruth's Blog

She has posted some pictures there and I will try to post different ones here.... Also you will enjoy reading what she has written...don't worry, she is not nearly as long winded as I am so it won't take forever to read like mine does!

These were all taken either right before, after or during the wedding. They are not in order, although I tried.

The "Tally"

This was taken as the "tally" was put around Ruth's neck. The tally (spelled wrong no doubt) is a little gold charm that all married (Hindu)Indian women wear. This is a very important moment in the wedding and is actually what signifies that the marriage has taken place. (I think)

Praveen takes his new bride for three laps around the stage. This might be the Indian equilivant to: "Introducing, Mr. and Mrs. Praveen Krishnan". In this photo you can see some of the items that the procession of girls brought onto the stage with them (laying on the floor).
