There’ve been plenty of cancelled weddings, birthdays and important ceremonies in general over the last year or so, but one couple over in India were not going to let a little worldwide pandemic scupper the plans for their big day.

With a 50-person cap on weddings in India, the couple known only as Rakesh and Dakshina loaded 160 of their closest friends and family on a chartered plane and tied the knot in the skies. Honestly? It looks like hell on Earth…

Rakesh and Dakshina got married on board a SpiceJet plane, with airport officials unaware of the proceedings taking place directly above the Madurai Meenakshi Amman Temple where the couple had intended to marry.
Bit of a genius move? Sure. But if I’m one of the people of the guest list I’m absolutely fuming that Rakesh and Dakshina have insisited I get on a cramped plane for a wedding ceremony in mid-air with 160 other people. It’s not even the Covid aspect of it – if the world was completely normal I’d still absolutely hate it. Although having said that it might also be a good idea to use that same plane to quarantine these folk for the next couple weeks, just to be on the safe side.
Regardless – has to be up there (no pun intended) with the worst weddings of all time. I know India has it bad right now Covid-wise but couldn’t they have just waited a few months and see how it plays out? Guess not.
