I was excited about Bhavin’s Haldi & Ganesh Puja Ceremony from the moment he booked me. It was an amazing day and as far as the Pithi Ceremony went the guest did not disappoint – it was a fantastic day and I was blessed to be a part of it.
The day was pretty full on, it was packed with several traditional ceremonies, which were all performed by a priest – Ganesh Sthapna, Mandap Mahurat, Pithi, Grah Shanti and finally the Varadh.
The Pithi Ceremony is very colourful and great fun to photograph – it involved family and friends putting Haldi (or turmeric) on Bhavin to ward off evil spirits and also to help Bhavin relax. It’s needless to say this, but no one held back, even the boys got involved!!
