Title: Kerala Christians Wedding and Ceremony

Kerala Christians Weddings and Rituals https//
Christians Wedding
  • Wedding marks the union of love, kindness,
    affability and graciousness between two
    individuals. It is a ligature not only between
    two bodies but also between two souls. Rituals
    and customs are the main attire of all weddings.
    It is a divinity followed religiously across the
    globe. https//
Welcoming of the Bride 
  • The bride gets ready in her house and sets off
    for the church in a car sent by the groom with
    some of her friends, generally bridesmaids. Her
    family follows. She is received at the church by
    the grooms family and is escorted into the
    church by the grooms best man. https//
The Wedding Hall 
  • Preceding the actual wedding ceremony, a wedding
    mass is held in most Indian Christian weddings
    especially in Roman Catholic orders. During the
    mass, prayers and hymns are performed by the
    priest. The program starts with an opening prayer
    which the guests can join in. https//
The Wedding Vows 
  • In India, the vows are mostly decided by the
    priest and the couple just utters them after him.
    They essentially promise each other that they
    will be by each others side through all phases
    of life till death do them part. https//
Marriage Ceremony
  • The marriage is solemnized by first exchanging
    wedding rings. These are mostly simple gold
    wedding bands that are place on the left hand
    ring finger of both the bride and groom by each
    other. Among South Indians, there is an
    additional custom where the groom ties a Thali
    around the brides neck. Thali is essentially
    akin to the Mangalsutra, having a leaf-shaped
    pendant with the symbol of the cross embedded on
    it, which is strung on a gold chain. https//
  • After completion of the wedding ceremony, the
    couple exits the church amid excited cheering and
    showering of confetti by the guests. The newlywed
    couple, along with all the invitees, moves to a
    banquet hall to attend the wedding reception https//
