Poonam’s Wedding

IMG_6895ss

We arrived at Ghumarwin just as the sun was setting. We had been invited to stay overnight at Poonam’s family home but thought there would be too much going on. We found a really cheap guest house instead on the other side of town. The wedding ceremony was held outdoors in a tent.

I was given a man’s Kullu cap on arrival. Lucky me!

The wedding was supposed to begin at 8:30 p.m., but unfortunately the groom and his party — who were driving to Ghumarwin from Delhi — had been delayed in traffic. This was the night I was saved by socks.

Poonam heard I had arrived and sent for me to join her in her room, where she was starting her photo shoot. I did a little photo shoot of my own.

She was spectacular from head to toe. Literally.

The groom’s arrival at 1:30 a.m. was heralded by fireworks.
