Sradha and Jaymin’s Chandlo Vidhi (engagement)
Sradha and Jaymin’s Engagement took place at Chalkhill Primary School in Wembley. The chandlo matli vidhi is also known as Sagai, Magni, Ghor Dhanna in different Indian/Gujarati communities. The event is to celebrate the first formal party before the wedding and it’s pre-ceremonies. The families exchange good wishes and gifts, however a formal ring ceremony cement’s the relationship on this occasion.
It all starts with the Bride’s seven brother’s making an entrance with their gifts (usually fruits, dates, and Indian sweets) whilst one brother brings in the matli (decorated clay pot). The engagement was followed by traditional Garba and Raas.
