For the past year, I left you all in suspense regarding our wedding photos. They’ve been around for a while, but I was too lazy to share them. You did get a sneak peek to the madness but now here’s the real deal.

There are boatload of photos, so be ready for a long fika!

Lovely photos ! I just wonder how long does it take for them to paint the tattoo on your hands ?

Absolutely amazing! Such detailed intricacies. It’s incredible when two cultures and families can come together for a ceremony like a wedding. Was this in Sweden or India? Love it, beautiful bride!

Um weren’t you married like ages ago? And also most of these pictures are already online and on your ‘company’ website the big fat Indian wedding.

Surely you didnt marry again since it really isn’t possible that you published old pictures online again!

Thanks all!

@Ai – Missed your comment the first time. The mehndi took 6 hours to put on between two ladies working on my hands and feet. The lady who did my hands (she’s sitting next to me in a photo above as we’re talking) is my mom’s best friend. She also did my mom’s wedding more than 30 years ago. There was a very special connection and I am so grateful she did my mehndi.

The wedding was in India :)

@Erik – I have no idea what you’re trying to say…
