Ceylonese Wedding - The Milk Bath
Every culture's wedding ceremonies is unique already with their own customs and traditions. For example an Indian wedding will have many similarities across all the Indian traditions and yet it's their sub-culture's customs which makes them stand out individually, thus we are able to differentiate which sub-culture they belong to.
The milk bathing ceremony is practiced by Ceylonese Indians, they are from Sri Lanka, formerly known as Ceylon, an island just at the south of India.
It takes place very early at home of the groom before they just before they start the journey to the temple proper to perform the wedding ceremony. Blessings from elders are a must to ensure good fortunes and well being of the groom.
We at Jet Fynn Photography have done plenty of these. Thanks to the environment that we are operating in - Malaysia, Truly Asia!
