Gaye Holud Ritual India

A Bengali couple named Sofie and Amit were married in a traditional Bengali wedding ceremony in Mamallapuram in eastern India. In the Gaye Holud ritual, the bride and groom are presented with fish dressed up as them. Sofie took it upon herself to have some fun with her fish!

Photograph Brian Callaway who captured this amazing photo says, “For me, the photo perfectly captures this cultural part of their wedding, their fun/spontaneous personalities, and, more importantly, how much fun they were having. It’s also their favorite photo.”
