Chefs and wedding planners travelled from India to Budapest last week as Akhil Paul, prominent London-based industrialist Swraj Paul’s grandson, tied the knot with his Pakistan-origin fiancee Bisma Mowjee in traditional Indian ceremony spread over three days.
The two Hungarian ministers and their families joined the 'sangeet' and 'mehndi' ceremonies, Paul said.
Some super-rich Indian families have held weddings in western Europe in recent years.
In September 2014, in an elaborate four-day ceremony, Ritika Agarwal, daughter of London-based mining magnate Pramod Agarwal wed Rohan Mehta, son of Arun Mehta, a former partner of a leading fashion brand, in Fasano, south Italy.
Agarwal had previously organised his other daughter Vineeta’s wedding in Venice in 2011. Steel baron Lakshmi Mittal’s daughter Vanisha’s wedding to Amit Bhatia was held in France in 2004, and his niece Shrishti married Gulraj Behl in Barcelona in December 2013.
