A Girl's Big Day
A Sikh Wedding
Here is what it's all about.
"They are not said to be husband and wife, who merely sit together. Rather they alone are called husband and wife, who have one soul in two bodies." (Guru Amar Das, Pauri, pg. 788)
This is my ideal wedding outfit.

- "Anand Karaj" is the wedding ceremony itself.
- It's literal meaning is "A Union of Two Souls".
- This ceremony usually takes place at a Sikh Temple with the presence of the Sikh holy scripture text, Guru Granth Sahib.
For more information you can email Jasleen Kaur.
- The ceremony itself is less than an hour.
- During this time, the bride and groom are asked to bow in front of the Guru Granth Sahib.
- Members of the wedding party sing hymns to seek God's blessings.
- The marriage official reads the couple their marital obligations as the couple walks around the holy scripture four times.
- After the end of each circle, the couple bows down to agree.
