These are pictures from the rest of the three-day saga that is the average Bengali Hindu wedding. I didn’t want to muscle in the crowd of photographers paid to cover the event — too much work in a heavy sari — so what I have here are edge-photographs (and one shot of the bride and groom when the photogs went for their dinner).
Some day, I think, I will chronicle what a Bengali wedding entails. Having just witnessed a wedding up close (and very very loud), I can bear most reliable witness. And anyway, for people used to the idea of Indian weddings being an hour of song and dance, this should certainly be illuminating.
