Standing in a photographic pose, the bride and her best friend look resplendent in bridal finery. The bride, younger of the two, wears a diaphanous odhini with golden pattern all over and an embroidered border. She wears a head ornament, earrings and a rich looking necklace. Her hands have been painted with henna a typically Indian bridal ritual. Her long hair have been braided into a long plait thrown in front. She smiles a whole hearted smile, that reflects in her eyes. The painter has also captured a shyness associated with brides. Her friend, who is older and married stands with her hand lovingly on her shoulder, the gesture unwittingly speaking of the bond they share. The friend wears a string of black beads signifying her marital status. She is also dressed for the wedding, wearing her best clothes and jewellery.
The artist has used brilliant colours as bridal attire is supposed to be. The background has been left simple and in dull colours, leaving the attention totally on the girls.
