Another extravagant, three-day Indian wedding took place in the coastal Antalya province as Kamal Gupta, the son of Ajay Gupta, a wealthy Indian businessman, and Aakash Jahajgarhia, the niece of another prominent Indian businessman, got married.
The couple's luxury wedding was at Mardan Palace in the city's Kundu area known for its five-star hotels. With fireworks and dazzling shows, a part of the wedding, Baraat - a traditional marriage procession to the wedding venue - was eye-popping. The procession took one-and-a-half hours and the groom was seated on a decorated carriage. For the wedding, which will end today, more than 380 staff from tailors to traditional tattoo artists have worked to meet the couple and their families' needs.
Around 600 guests from South Africa to the U.K. and Dubai have come to Antalya for the wedding. More than 100 chefs cooked traditional Indian food while a team of 50 photographers are at the venue to record the event. To decorate the wedding venue, more than 70 flower containers were brought from the Netherlands. Mardan Palace allocated the hotel's four sections for the wedding. For the couple's wedding ring reception, 100 Indian singers and musicians are expected to take the stage while dancers and acrobats entertain the guests.
