Couple invites 2000 people for wedding months ago, now weds in presence of 10
Thodupuzha (Idukki): Without any hustle-bustle of relatives and friends, clicks of photographers and a grand wedding feast, a young couple tied the knot in the most humble way possible. Amid coronavirus prevention lockdown, Kattappana Vellayamkudi native Amal and Ayyappankovil native Akhila entered the wedlock in the presence of 10 close relatives strictly following the lockdown norms.
The wedding date was fixed in August last year itself and both families had made all arrangements for the function. They also invited about 2000 people for the ceremony. But coronavirus outbreak occurred unexpectedly and lockdown was imposed. However, the families of bride and groom decided not to postpone the wedding ceremony.
Following this, they conducted the nuptial ceremony at Thonithadi Sreenarayana Gurudeva Temple. Only close family members attended the wedding and all of them wore masks during the function. Also they made sure to clean hands with sanitizer at regular intervals.
The marriage ceremony took place under the auspices of Puthannadayil Shajan Santhikal. Groom Amal is an engineer and bride Akhila is RD Executive in Eastern company.
