Thousands of Indian weddings have been postponed due to the growing infection of the corona virus worldwide, but in the meantime a couple and its enterprise planner came up with a good idea that took full care of social distancing. It all happened at London’s Drive in Park, where hundreds of guests attending the wedding sat in cars and some watched on the big screen.
Said Meerpuri, a planner in London, said on Wednesday that on 2 October, Vinal Patel and Roma Popat got married in Braxted Park, Chanceford, Essex. During this time there was also heavy rain, but there was no such problem in the wedding ceremony. While music and DJs were also put in place. Due to Corona, only 15 people can gather at the wedding program.
In such a situation, the guests attending the wedding remained seated in the car and people came out in a limit. A large screen was installed for those sitting in the car. Mirpuri, whose family has ties in India, said thousands of weddings, usually held in summer, have been postponed. In the lockdown, the wedding industry has lost about Rs. Guidelines regarding marriage are constantly changing. Many people have postponed their marriage till 2021.
Mirpur told that it was a good way to involve more than 15 people in the wedding. Pre-wedding, Sangeed and other events were held at the couple’s home. However, the event was a risk and a challenge for us as it had never happened before. He said that even we ourselves did not know how it would happen.
It took two months to organize London-born Mirpuri’s team, although initially planning for marriage was like a joke. Guests who attended the wedding with their cars were provided with nasta as well as hand-gel and plastic bags.
