Baraat Ceremony at Pelican Hill

December 15th, 2017

Next morning on Saturday was a long day with bride’s make up starting at 5 am and groom’s turban tying at 7 am. The elephant arrived in all its splendor at 8 am and Baraat started at 9 am. Special Baraat band had flown from New York and played upbeat Shadi tunes. It was quite a majestic and festive sight to see our groom sitting regally on top of the elephant.

Milni took place right after a small prayer was said and guests were escorted for breakfast on the terrace. Ceremony set up was elegant and sophisticated under the tent on the lawn and guests were asked to make their way to the tent after breakfast. A shoe valet was provided from Pelican upon Nikki’s request and assisted guests in taking off their shoes and placing them behind the hedges. Raagis were singing religious hymns and after bowing to the Holy Book, ladies sat on one side of the tent while men sat on the other.

Bride made her entrance to the tent which was an indication for ceremony to begin.

According to Sikh tradition, ceremony has to conclude by 12 pm at which time guests made their way for lunch and couple was whisked away by the wedding butler for photos.


Couple joined the guests right before the formal send off which was witnessed by all wedding guests.

We wish our couple lifetime of happiness and eternal bliss!

Stay tuned for cocktail hour, dinner reception and after party in next week blog.
