The first Mizo wedding in 14 years

The last time I attended a Mizo wedding was in 1998. For 14 years Mizo wedding was hard to come by in Trichy,Chennai and Bangalore. I did attend a lot of wedding receptions. The Muslims were my favorite because of the always delicious biryani.

Day before yesterday, Helen of Lunglei and a cousin I’ve hardly met got married. We have hardly met (and her side of the family) because her grandpa got a job at Lunglei and settled down there whereas the rest of us remained in Kawrthah.

Unbeknownst to them and outside the world of Facebook here are some wedding photos I shot with my 50mm prime lens.
