Chennai: Tying the eternal knot of love – marriage, is one of the most special events in one’s life when a couple wants all their near and dear ones to be present at the ceremony. However, in view of the COVID-19 pandemic, many states and cities have imposed curfews and limited wedding guest restrictions. As a result of which, hundreds of thousands of couples who were set to get married during this time of pandemic had to cut short their list of guests and even several events.
But, amid all this, a couple from Tamil Nadu’s Madurai has made it into the headlines for their unique idea of getting married in presence of all their loved ones. The couple booked an entire flight from Madurai-Bangalore and tied the knot exactly when their aircraft hovered over the Madurai Meenakshi Amman Temple in the ‘graceful’ presence of a whopping 161 relatives in the flight, said a report.
The couple, Rakesh-Dakshina both residents of Madurai, decided to rent the plane for two hours to tie the knot up above the sky in a bid to avoid the ongoing COVID-19 wedding restrictions and curfew in Tamil Nadu. A video of the unique wedding is also going viral on social media after a user posted it on Twitter with the caption, ‘Rakesh-Dakshina from Madurai, who rented a plane for two hours and got married in the wedding sky.
