A Traditional Orthodox Jewish Wedding

Variety is the spice of life and today we take a look at a traditional ultra-orthodox Jewish wedding.

On Tuesday this week thousands gathered to witness the marriage of the grandson of the Rabbi of the Tzanz Hasidic dynasty – a community in the coastal Israeli city of Netanya. The wedding ceremony is rightly considered one of the greatest highlights of life for Orthodox Jews and being part of a prominent family, this wedding was a public spectacle.

Family members arrived in horse drawn carriages for the week long celebration! Ending with the traditional seven blessings ceremony, the couple were married under a canopy known as a huppah. Men and women are separated during the celebrations by a large curtain. The heavily veiled Bride is guided into the service by a ribbon and then family members and honoured Rabbis are invited to perform a special dance for the Bride – the Mitzvah Tantz and to dance with the Groom. The Bride in white surrounded by the men in their traditional black clothes and hats makes for a striking photo. I particularly like the Groom’s coat - ‘something blue’ perhaps! I can't imagine how much organizing such a huge wedding must have taken - truly impressive in scale! I hope you enjoy these photos as much as we did!
