Weddings are mostly emotional. Everyone has a stir of bittersweet emotions in their hearts. The bride side is emotional as their daughter associates with a new family and the groom side is emotional to welcome a new member. While different people have different experiences, one of the many great things about a wedding ceremony is the way people open their hearts and let the tears flow with sheer happiness.
The beautiful bride, the wedding music playing and smiling faces, it is not just an event but a beginning of a new journey. The bangles, the flowers, the wedding fire and people, everything and everyone has a beautiful story to tell.

The Bride Who Refused Kanyadaan
An IPS officer Tapasya Parihar refused to be given away as a daan to the groom’s family. She clearly said to her father that she was not a charity but his daughter. Her thoughts on the traditional practice that symbolises completely giving away the bride to groom really inspired people.
