What is Tamil matrimony?

Tamil matrimony (தமிழ் திருமணம்) takes place between a bride and groom who both have Tamil as their mother tongue. Tamil was the first Indian language to receive the classical designation from the Government of India. It has official status in Tamil Nadu, the Andaman and Nicobar Islands as well as Puducherry. It is one of the oldest surviving languages in the world.

Tamil literature dates back more than two thousand years. In 1578, Tamil became the first Indian language to be printed and published.

According to Tamilians wedding is more about following age-old customs and traditions rather than a mere lavish affair. Tamil weddings (also known as Kalyanam), can take place during the day of all months of the Tamilian calendar except Aashad, Bhadrapad and Shunya.
