Naina Dahal

This is my brother-in-law and his wife on their Bhoda (wedding) day, wearing a handmade necklace known as a garland only work on wedding day. It is a traditional arranged marriage. In my tradition husband and wife are blessed by family and friends. Each person takes a turn and places a tika on their forehead and gives their gift as well. In Nepal wedding are always outside. Family and friends sit around a banana tree on four corners and surround the Bauli and Buala (bride and groom)
