Asian Weddings

In a traditional Indian wedding, the ritual not only unites two individuals but establishes the bond between two families and their culture. The marriage ceremony, a colourful and joyous event, is spread over several days.

Baraat

An important and most entertaining ceremony, takes place during the arrival of the groom at the wedding venue. The procession known as the Baraat, which is made up of the groom’s family members, relatives and friends, accompany him to the venue. They are known as the Barati.

On their arrival they are welcomed and received by the bride’s family. In his travels with the Barati the groom rides upon an elephant or a beautiful white horse known as the Ghodi. The Ghodi is adorned with decorations and ornaments, and carries the groom. As the Barati travels along with the groom there is singing, dancing and the excitement of the dholi drummer.
        
At TW Carriages, we take great pride in the detail and will provide you with the most well behaved, beautifully adorned white horse. Your Ghodi will wear a one-of-a-kind, hand-made costume complete with ghungroo (anklets) and morki (crown). With matching umbrella and handlers dressed in traditional garb, we aim to make your Baraat like no other.
        
Your Ghodi will be available for a 1 ½ hour time slot. Viewing of your Ghodi before your event is available upon request.
                                    
Horse Drawn Vidai
A pair of Ghodi drawing a decorated carriage can also be provided for the post wedding ceremony known as the Vidai. This ceremony symbolizes a new journey for the bride as she leaves her parents, her friends and family members.
