Why did Anant Ambani and Radhika Merchant opt for a Mediterranean cruise for their pre-wedding celebrations?

Jun 14, 2024 11:31 AM IST

Anant Ambani and Radhika Merchant hosted a four-day-long Mediterranean cruise for their 1200-person guest list. They started their trip from Palermo in Sicily.

Anant Ambani and Radhika Merchant’s wedding may not be till July, but their pre-wedding festivities started in March. In an event held at Jamnagar in Gujarat, the Ambanis invited dignitaries not just from India but across the world. The couple recently hosted a four-day-long Mediterranean cruise for their second pre-wedding celebration. Reportedly, the couple settled on Europe as the location as it was a convenient place for many of their guests. And why a cruise? This venue was decided after they struggled to find a place that could accommodate their 1200-person guest list.

“It was a retreat for the people that have contributed to our life in different ways,” Radhika Merchant told Vogue in an interview after the pre-wedding cruise. She added that the event was attended by their families, friends, and employees of both Reliance Industries and Encore Healthcare. Guests from Anant Ambani’s Vantara also attended the celebrations.

According to the outlet, the cruise started in Palermo, Sicily, where the guests were welcomed with lunch. At night, the Ambanis hosted a starry-night-themed party, complete with a performance from the Backstreet Boys.
