Discovery Channel premieres World Wedding Day

MUMBAI: Discovery Channel premieres World Wedding Day, a show participated by six couples around the world including Bangalore on 14 November.

This wedding season in India, World Wedding Day gives viewers a unique insight into what goes into the preparation of the big day, from buying clothes for everyone from both sides of the family, to the preparation of meals, accommodation and even gift bags for the wedding guests, informs an official release.

The programme features interviews with Lakshmi and Anand, a Bangalore couple abut to get married, sharing their personal emotions and feelings leading up to a modern arranged marriage. Anand tells us about the kind of woman he wanted to marry and how Lakshmi turned out to be the ideal one. Lakshmi reveals that while their parents arranged this marriage, the choice to marry was theirs and they fell in love in the months leading up to the ceremony.

As modern as it sounds to many Indians, the marriage is steeped in traditions and customs with pujas for everything. Unfortunately, there is no puja to ward off the trucking strike that hits on the day before the wedding, driving up the cost of feeding their 1,500 guests by 40 percent, adds the release.

Cameras went to every corner of the globe to experience the pageantry and comedy of weddings in six very different cultures. From the arranged romance of Lakshmi and Anand in bustling Bangalore to a love story in Vietnam; from a Maori holy place in New Zealand to an African Zulu village; from the stunning Italian coast to beautiful Rio de Janeiro; the programme captures the unforgettable excitement of couples starting their new lives together, adds the release.
