As a wedding photographer traveling across India to different destinations on assignments, I love the fact that I get to see the sheer diversity of this country. It is a rarity that more than two weddings in my calendar year would follow the same rituals, style & customs. Here is a wedding of the Kodava or Coorgi community that I photographed earlier this year. The Kodavas are a Hindu community who primarily hail from Coorg/Madikeri district of Karnataka.
This was a wedding where there were two different ceremonies held. The first was a Hindu Arya Samaj wedding ceremony conducted during the afternoon, and it was followed by the traditional Coorgi ceremony in the evening.
This is a gallery with photographs from the Coorgi/Kodava ceremony of the wedding. The wedding was held at the Tamarind Tree Bangalore, a boutique wedding destination location on the outskirts of Bangalore city. It was a pleasure shooting this beautiful wedding of the lovely couple Adithi & Rathan. I wish them a very happy married life.
