The Sikh marriage is a unique sacrament because it does not require any services to be performed by a priest-it requires only the presence of the Sikh holy book, Guru Granth Sahib, and a reader, either man or woman, to read specified verses from it while the bride and bridegroom walk four times around the holy book. The Sikh marraige ceremony does nto have to be performed in a gurdwara or Sikh place of worship. It can legally, take place in the home or in an appropriate public place, at any time. Ceremonies of the Sikh Wedding celebrates the uniqueness and simplicity of the Anand Karaj, behind which lies the sublime meaning the Sikh Gurus gave to the different stages of a human being's life from birth to death, including wedded life.
