This lovely capture shows the moment Priya put her bindi on. A bindi is a red dot made of vermillion powder. It is considered traditionally to be the point at which creation began and turns into unity. It was the final and finishing touch to her wedding outfit.
During this time many thoughts were running through her mind, nerves, anticipation for the day ahead.
Of course waiting for Ash to arrive was enough excitement in itself for Priya!
This photograph was taken from behind the bride and looking into the mirror as she makes her last adjustments. We love how you can see the strong colour of her outfit through her arm, also showing off her bridal bangles.
