» Pre - Marriage Ceremonies

There are as such no pre marriage ceremonies except that the Bride and Bridegroom are taught about the rituals of the actual marriage two months before the marriage. Most of the Christian Marriages are held in The Church, so the Priest or the Father has to be told about the Marriage Date in Advance.

» Marriage Ceremonies :

In the Christian Marriage the Marriage begins when the bride and bride-groom comes in front of the ailse. Before this as soon as the Bride reaches the Church Gate in her flowing White Gown, she is walked down to the Altar by her father. Her Best Man - a close relative or friend of the Bride follows her. Following the Best Man are the bridesman who follow the bride by lifting her trail.

On reaching the Altar, the choirs are sung by the musicians and the people present in the Church. The Priest/ Father of the church describes the young couple and then takes oath from them. Once they agree to the vows, the wedding rings are exchanged. Subsequently, the priest proclaims them as Man and Wife. Thus the Marriage is solmenised.
