In a traditional Indian wedding, the rituals not only unite two individuals, but establishes the bond between two families and their culture.
The marriage ceremony, a colorful and joyous event, can be spread over several days. An important and most entertaining ceremony, takes place during the arrival of the groom at the wedding venue. The procession known as the Baraat, which is made up of the groom’s family members, relatives and friends, accompany him to the venue. They are known as the Barati.
On their arrival they are welcomed and received by the bride’s family. In his travels with the barati the groom rides upon an elephant or a beautiful white horse know as the Ghodi. The Ghodi is adorned with decorations and ornaments, and carries the groom along with his best man who is usually a younger brother, cousin or nephew. As the Barati travels along with the groom there is singing, dancing and the excitement of the dholi drummer.
At Wind Chase Farm, we take immense pride in the details, and will provide you with the most well behaved, beautifully adorned white horse. Your Ghodi will wear a one-of-a-kind, hand-made costume complete with ghungroo (anklets) and morki (crown). With matching umbrella and handlers dressed in traditional garb, we aim to make your Baraat like no other.
A Ghodi wearing an equally beautiful costume drawing a decorated carriage can also be provided for the post wedding ceremony known as the Vidai. This ceremony symbolizes a new journey for the bride as she leaves her parents, her friends and family members. Wind Chase respects the emotional moments of this ceremony and allows you to take as much time as needed.
When you hire our horses you are hiring them not only because you want a safe and reliable mount for your Groom- the best planners know our horses will interact with your loved ones, delighting them in the memories created in the Baraat procession. It's what sets Wind Chase Farm apart from the other companies.
Wind Chase Farm is proud to be part of your special day. Let us help create wonderful memories.
