NEW YORK (VINnews) — A bride who was jilted by her groom at her wedding ended up marrying a guest at the wedding.
The bride, named Sindhu from the Bangalore region in India, was supposed to be marrying a man named Naveen. The ceremony was taking place on the same day as Naveen’s brother’s wedding so the families were holding them simultaneously.
The wedding was set for Sunday 3 January and the day before, Naveen and Sindhu participated in pre-wedding events such as posing for pictures and receiving greetings from guests. However when the wedding commenced the next day, Naveen was nowhere to be found. Local media reports claimed that Naveen had a secret girlfriend and fled the wedding to be with her since she had allegedly threatened to spoil the wedding by drinking poison in front of the guests.
Naveen’s brother, Ashok, went ahead with his marriage but then the families were left wondering where Naveen was and did not know how to continue.
Sindhu’s family members decided that she would still be able to wed if they could find an eligible person among the guests.
A Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) conductor, who was present at the wedding, volunteered to marry Sindhu if both the families agreed.
They all met, finalised the wedding vows and Sindhu still managed to get married at the wedding after all.
