Couple ties knot dangling over 1000 feet
In a one-of-a-kind wedding ceremony, a couple in Kolhapur district of Maharashtra tied the knot dangling 1,000 feet in the air yesterday. Dressed in traditional Marathi outfits, the bride and groom braved the rain as they dangled above the deep gorge through wires. The priest chanted ‘mantras’ while the bride and groom exchanged vows and garlands, all hanging from a ropeway. Impressed guests and many curious onlookers crowded at the boundary wall of the gorge to get a glimpse of the unique wedding ceremony. A running commentary was played out to apprise the guests of the various steps of the ceremony.
