A traditional Manipuri Wedding

Estimated reading time: Less than 2 minutes

On 8 November 2013, my sister got married.

Even though I had big plans of covering the entire ceremony, being a family member, I was caught up with responsibilities and was unable to do so. However, here are a couple of photographs me & my brother took which (I think) will provide a peep into how a Manipuri wedding goes like. By the time, let me get my hands onto the professional shots.
