The Aghd ceremony is the traditional Persian wedding ceremony that has been practised for thousands of years, dating back to the Zorastian era. This is a cultural ceremony that is practised regardless of faith, and it traditionally takes place at the bride’s home or hometown.
There are many symbolic items on the Sofreyeh ( spread of) Aghd ( marriage), each one representing an aspect of nature such as the earth, wind, fire, and water. These symbolise the union of mind, body, and spirit, as well as the couple’s new life together.
