Chunni Engagement Photography
It was a great pleasure to photograph the newly engaged couple at the VIP Lounge in Edgware London. Click here for more information on VIP Lounge.
It was a day packed with colour, joy, happiness and dancing as two families unite on this special day.
The chunni ceremony is often referred to as the official engagement where the couple are witnessed and blessed by family and friends. The ceremony involves the boy’s family visiting the girl’s house or venue such as VIP Lounge. The boy’s family bring gifts comprising of fresh and dried fruits, indian sweets and an outfit for the girl usually either red or green. The boy’s mum places the chunni over the girl’s head as shown on the photographs below. Then she or other significant women will shower the girl with gifts including jewellery, bangles and chain. The main significance behind gifting the girl a red or green outfit and dressing her, represents the boy’s family’s acceptance of her as their future daughter in law. Congratulations to the newly engaged couple.
