“I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.”
(The Holy bible – Isaiah 61:10)

This is an intimate portrait of Sugandh shot a few seconds before she put the flower garland around my friend Rohit’s neck in order to marry him according the Indian tradition.
The shaadi (wedding) took place in Lucknow, the capital of the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh.
Sugandh, the name of this beautiful bride means fragrance in Sanskrit and during the ceremony we could feel everywhere an intense scent of happiness.
