Between 4th and 6th June, some of India’s richest Marwaris will be in Florence to attend the wedding celebrations of Tanvi Jindal and Krishna Shete. Tanvi’s mother Sangita Jindal runs Art India magazine and the Jindal Arts Creative Centre at NCPA and father Sajjan Jindal is the Vice Chairman of JSW Steel. Like mother Sangita who got married very early, at 17, Tanvi who works with an NGO, is marrying at a young age by modern India standards—she’s just 22. Her sister Tarini runs Muse, the luxury fashion store in Mumbai’s trendy art district Kala Ghoda and brother Parth is studying at Brown University. Groom Krishna’s father Raju Shete, run the food services company Radhakrishna Group.
Sangita Jindal and the Jindal family, are closely associated with several Art & Heritage projects, and quite naturally have chosen for their very special occasion, the Art and History capital of Europe.
Florence in Italy is considered one of the finest wedding destinations in the world. Its old, charming palace hotels offer a setting of a different kind– where modern love mingle with past romances to offer a most dreamy, dramatic and enchanting environment! Except for close friends and select wedding guests no one has too many details about the wedding. All the arrangements are being overseen by the secretaries and work staff of Sangita and Sajjan Jindal, and there is hectic activity at 32 Walkeshwar Road, their palatial residence in Mumbai. A close friend of Sangita Jindal tells us: “Sangita and her two daughters prefer a very minimalist, classic style—and unlike other super-rich brides it’s highly unlikely that they’ll wear over-the-top glittery creations or have with them an entourage of stylists”.
While family and friends of the Jindals can’t wait to be in Florence, we can’t wait to see the Fabulous Photographs of what could possibly be the Indian Wedding of the Year!
