Monica’s Roce Ceremony photo shoot

Monica's Roce Ceremony

Our wedding photographers had fun shooting Monica’s Roce ceremony. Goans and Mangaloreans have a special ceremony called “Roce” where the bride-to-be or the groom-to-be is drenched in milk. Coconut juice and a paste of turmeric are also applied on the boy’s or the girl’s hands and face. This signifies the last bath that the bride-to-be or the groom-to-be will be taking in their bachelorhood/spinsterhood. With the ceremony of ‘roce’, the wedding celebrations begins. Both, the bride-to-be and the groom-to-be have to undergo this ritual in their respective homes and its celebrated with a lot of family and friends.
