Mangalasnanam Snippets Bursting With Freshness & Bright Hues

BY Garvita | 24 Jan, 2023 | 13794 views | 4 min read

For us, weddings are majorly about scouting beautiful, ethereal images, and going gaga over them! While looking for such captures in South Indian weddings, we realised how alluring is the Mangalasnanam ritual. Probably, the most fun yet enthralling of 'em all!

It's a wedding ritual in which the pellikuthuru (bride) and the pellikoduku (groom) are given a purifying holy bath to further attend the wedding rites and ceremonies.

Keeping in mind the stunning aesthetics of this ceremony, we dug deeper and found some beautiful Mangalasnanam portraits that would make you go 'WHOA'. Scroll down for a heartwarming rollercoaster of emotions!
