These are some of the photos from the week I spent in Chandigarh India, February 2014, for the wedding ceremonies and festivities of the Sharma family. There are no words to describe this joyous event. It was like a dream. The food, the kindest of all people, the decorations, the dancing, the clothes, a culture stronger than any other I've ever experienced..... did I mention the food? Everything was so extravagant and beautiful.
I was traveling there with a group of Norwegians. Obviously we stuck out like a sore thumb. Anywhere we went we were asked to take dozens of photos with strangers who seemed to be fascinated by us. It was flattering until women started handing me their babies!
The week was filled with various events from dinners, to ceremonial parties, a Punjabi night where everyone dressed in Punjabi attire and danced all night long, and of course the official marriage night which began at 19h and finished long after 4h.
I feel so lucky to have been on this trip with everyone. I made some wonderful new friends in both Norway and India.
