In what happens to be one of the most memorable day in a person's life, a young groom and would-be husband was met with a strange twist of fate. On the day of the wedding, his wedding procession which consisted of 80 people at the beginning of the journey, was cut by 1/4th by the time it reached the wedding venue.
The culprit behind this twisted change of events was the incessant snowfall in the area.
North India has been facing the wrath of a cold wave over the past week, so on Friday when Rajnish Kurmachali's wedding procession reached Makku Math in Rudraprayag for the wedding, there were only 25 guests with him.

What's more, all these 25 people wedding guests enthusiastically walked across a stretch of 6 kilometres on snow-laden roads, to reach Makku Math from Triyuginarayan village, where the groom's family lived.
According to a HT report, when the groom's family found that roads were blocked due to excessive snowfall, they decided to only send those members of the family who were required to perform the wedding rituals, and the others stayed back. All along the journey, the children in the procession kept playing in the snow and had an amazing time together.

The groom's brother, Ashish Gairola, told HT that, “we had seen a wedding procession like this in 2002 and now this was the next one. People will talk about this procession and the wedding for years as in both the weddings the groom was an army jawan”. We presume that this wedding shall be memorable to one and all for many other reasons too.
The wedding procession had a great time making their way to the wedding, and were all smiles to be part of such a unique wedding.

Talking to HT, Bijay Lal, head of Triyuginarayan village, said, “Even I had to go to the wedding but we were all stuck due to the snow. But those who went enjoyed the whole journey and the wedding took place without any problem.”
We are sure that the bride and her family must have been super glad and excited by their efforts, who took the decision to make this wedding a success, and a memorable experience for all those involved.
