Wedding rites bring tears of joy and sorrow for an ornately dressed bride saying goodbye to her mother in the Indian state of Rajasthan. Following Hindu tradition, the bride is leaving her parents' home the day after the wedding to live with her new husband and his parents. In this instance, the bride knows and loves her new husband. Most marriages in India are still arranged, with parents choosing partners for their children. If newlyweds are lucky, they will confirm the traditional Indian saying: "First comes marriage, then comes love."
