In view of the COVID-19 pandemic, many states across India have imposed curfews and lockdown including limited wedding guests’ restrictions. Amidst this, a couple from Tamil Nadu’s Madurai has made it into the headlines for the unique idea of getting married in presence of 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 161 relatives in the flight.

The couple, Rakesh-Dakshina, hailing from 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.

The video of the unique wedding is going viral on social media after a user posted it on Twitter. It was captioned, “Rakesh-Dakshina from Madurai, who rented a plane for two hours and got married in the wedding sky. Family members who flew from Madurai to Bangalore after getting married by SpiceJet flight from Bangalore to Madurai.”

The video shows the groom tying the Mangalsutra around the bride’s neck as the relatives present during the ceremony cheer and shower them with flower petals.

The post has garnered 1.6K views so far.
