Photographing a Chandlo Vidhi (engagement)

Sradha and Jaymin were engaged at Chalkhill Primary School, Wembley. In different Indian/Gujarati communities, the chandlo matli vishi is known as Sagai (Magni), Ghor Dhanna (Ghor Dhanna) and Sagai (Mencius). This event celebrates the pre-ceremonies and the first formal party prior to the wedding. While the families exchange gifts and good wishes, a formal ceremony to enact the marriage is essential.

The bride’s seven brothers make an entrance, usually with fruits, dates and Indian sweets, while one brother brings the matli (decorated clay container). Traditional Garba and Raas were followed by the engagement.
