Next step: NELENGU

The Nelengu is a tamil custom which is a ceremony performed before the wedding. A paste of turmeric, among other mixtures and rose water is applied all over the body of the groom. This is a cleansing ritual, and is known to ward off any bad vibes that may negatively affect the couple in the future. The groom is left with a glow and radiance which prepares him for his wedding day.

Yes, my family is crazy! I love it and wouldn't have it any other way :) part of the wedding is packaging 7 trays of various gifts for the bride and we exchange these at the wedding with 7 girls from bride's side with gifts for the groom. This is where the hashtag #weddingwedding was created by my eldest aunt. In the last video, you'll see the production line for the nelengu favours. These are for each lady that applies turmeric paste on Nikhil at his nelengu function. SOUND ON p.s. if you listen closely you'll hear @nahishta_singh say "your'll are shell" -proudly my girl

I love documenting events for the Chetty family. The events are always beautiful to experience and loads of fun. 
@nessichetty nelengu started of at their family home and included lots of fun moments with friends and family. Nessi looked amazing even though she got messed with tumeric:) I love documenting these moments as they are filled with so much affection and fun. 
The nelengu continued in the evening. This was equally fun to document even though this is the more formal side of things. Lots of entertaining speeches and dances followed and the Chetty family partied the night away. What was also great about this pre wedding was working with the guys from @elephantsbelly again. They rock! 
Enjoy 10 frames from this spectator celebration 
Much love and gratitude
This gorgeous young lady still blows my mind with how stunning she looked in this piece.
