Oonjal ceremony is an important ritual in Tamil Brahmin Weddings. In this ceremony, the bride and the groom sit on a beautifully decorated Oonjal / Swing facing East holding each other's hand. The married women gather around the Oonjal, and start singing traditional Oonjal songs while gently rocking the swing. It is not only a fun ceremony but also has a lot of significance to it.
The swinging of the Oonjal represents the ups and downs that the couple might encounter, but irrespective of these ups and downs, the couple promise to be with each other and support each other. To give you inspiration for your Oonjal ceremony, we have handpicked stunning Oonjal decoration for you.
