There is no more lovely, friendly and charming relationship, communion or company than a good marriage.

We come to love not by finding a perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly.


What makes it interesting is that everyone is welcome to participate with gusto. The elders, needless to say, do it with reverence and offer their blessings. For the kids, it’s almost another round of Holi! However for the peers who could be siblings or friends of the bride/groom, it’s not just any ritual. It’s also a chance at harmless fun revenge on the star of the day for past unfinished business. Now you (and we) know why these peers get innovative with the ingredients to be added to the water! All in all, there’s so much cheer and laughter around that there are plenty of lively moments for us to capture.

Tradition and deeper in emotions – that’s a Kongu Wedding.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails … And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

What is a vow, but an intention spoken out before the world so that the world, in hearing, might take part in aspirations of the willing heart? In our coming here today to join and bless the joy of your becoming wed, may we enter in the truth of the words you’ve said, “I do.

In as much as love grows in you, so in you beauty grows. For love is the beauty of the soul.
