This couple from Madurai is the perfect example of what would people do for the sake of love! Marriage is one of the most precious moments in a couple’s life that they want to spend with their friends and family.
However, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, many states and cities have imposed curfews and limited wedding guest restrictions. But, this couple from Tamil Nadu’s Madurai made waves as they came up with a unique idea of getting married in presence of all their loved ones.
The couple from Madurai booked an entire flight from Madurai to Bangalore and tied the knot exactly when their airplane was over the Madurai Meenakshi Amman Temple in the ‘graceful’ presence of their 161 relatives in the flight, according to a report in India.com.
The couple, identified as Rakesh and Dakshina, are both residents of Madurai and 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.
