The pata-chitrakar paints religious motifs with devotion. But he treats art with more secularism. He involves the day-to-day life of the people as part of his thematic content. For the villagers, marriage is an occasion for music and celebration.

In this painting, the artist depicts a part of a wedding ritual, as the bridegroom takes home the bride. The procession is led by a band of musicians, playing the drum, pipe and a conch. They are facing the palanquin bearers, who carry the shy bride in an exquisite palanquin. The bride, wearing a traditional red saree, covers her head and partially her face. The other two bearers carry the palanquin from behind. A couple of men can be seen carrying the luggage belonging to the couple. The bridegroom follows them in another, less elaborate palanquin by four bearers, two in front and two behind.

The procession is passing through a lush green garden. Trees of varying kinds can be seen in the background. A few curling clouds are painted close to the upper edge of the painting. The frieze is closed in by a beautiful border.
