Another private pre-wedding shoot tonight. An Asian one too, so it was very colourful.
Near the end of the night everyone was given a bag of sugar in a small paper carrier bag. It was explained to me the significance of the sugar. Apparently a long time ago in India sugar was a commodity that only rich people could afford, so people did what they could to give sugar as a gift to bring the newly married couple good luck.
Nowadays you can buy a bag of sugar very cheaply. But the tradition lives on.
