    -Be ready to be covered with rice once the groom ties the thaali on the bride.
    -Be ready for a long long ceremony which keeps repeating
    -Bride and Groom march ins?

    That's mostly what i can remember. Where's your friend's ceremony held? If you can attend the bangle ceremony, it gives you a rough idea on what to expect on the actual ceremony.
    thanks much for the useful information.

    she havent gave me the location.i reckon it's some indian temple.
    i will ask her about the bangle ceremony.
    thanks so much again.

    expect bright colours, flowers, loud noises, heat, good food and at the end of it all a "different" experience, you may just have a lot of fun

    Ahh ... the drums, tablas, sitars and bells ... and DA FOOD! YEESSSHHH!!!

    Oh, one thing, there will be fire, so technically, be prepared to optimise settings 'not to loose' the look and feel of the flames.

    Hey Jeanie, just shot a Hindu wedding recently myself, it's still up on my blog at www.39voices.blogspot.com

    I would definitely bring a long a flash. These ceremonies generally run fairly long and depending what time it starts, it could run well into the night.

    I'd also pack a wide angle lens too. I've come to find it's not quite as solemn as a church ceremony. People can get up and walk around in the middle of the ceremony, talk, etc, etc, so it's lots of fun and you don't have to be too scared. but because of that, people sometimes crowd around the ceremony quite tightly etc, so you'll need to get in with a wide angle.

    One of the things to watch out for is that the ceremony can sometimes get quite smoky as they burn the ghee/wax so once they do that you want to be upwind of the smoke so your pics aren't all whitish and blurry.

    And definitely want to be shooting in color.

    Sorry, not sure if these are the answers you are looking for, but just my experiences from shooting Hindu weddings.

    really very bo seh!

    in any case, i would want my pics to be different.hence, i'll deliberately shoot things which i think the official photogs wont cover.
    Hmm,i think you should bring ur big camera along though i know it's difficult to keep a low profile. Your colleague will love the photos you take from another perspective. Moreover ur photos will be different/a pleasant surprise for her cos u took it without the stress of having to deliver conventional photos that paying clients expect.
