Before the actual marriage day, there are other ceremonies such as the Tilak ceremony, where the bride's male relatives place Tilaks on the groom's forehead as a sign of favor and acceptance by the bride's family. The Mehendi Lagwana ceremony involves the application of 'henna' on the bride's feet and left hand; a person should not apply henna on the right hand because of the Hathlewa ceremony, which requires the priest to tie the bride's right hand, to the groom's left hand as a sign of unity.
Hindu marriages that take place in Markham require a priest from the couple's caste to conduct the nuptials ceremony. The marriage couple should be compatible in terms of faith and caste because people from different castes should not marry according to the Hindu faith. During the nuptials ceremony, the groom stands up holding the bride's hand and thereafter walks around the Agni, which is holy fire. The groom goes round while reciting 'mantra', which are vows that the groom makes to the bride. The vows that the groom makes to the bride include daily provision of food, support, clothing and shelter and the groom makes it known to the guests of the undying love for the bride. Hindus, who wed in Mississauga, may hire Mississauga wedding videographers or Mississauga wedding photographers to cover the groom making vows so that it can serve as future evidence in case the groom does not respect the vows made.
The bride also makes vows to the groom by holding the groom's right hand and reciting the vows in the Sanskrit language. In Ontario, many Hindu marriage ceremonies take place during the summer season because the marriage ceremonies usually involve much dancing and most of the rituals performed take place in open space. The couple hires nuptials videographers to take a wedding video of the couple during the ritual performance. In Canada, many Hindu couples have spicy food served during their marriage as their tradition demands. Modern Hindu ceremonies are shorter than the traditional marriages in terms of duration and takes place in below a 'mandap', which is a canopy that has for pillars. Hindu nuptials ceremonies require a priest to make prayers to Lord Vishnu, who is the protector of all men and life.

Woman of the Hindu faith and man of the Christian faith marriage?
I was wondering if you have heard of such circumstances. Also, if you have can you include any pics of these couples. Thank you.
Btw, do any men or women on here have this type of relationship?
