A very high profile Indian wedding is taking place in February next year—steel magnate Sajjan Jindal’s elder daughter Tarini is marrying Abu Dhabi based businessman Vikram Handa. The wedding celebrations are in Delhi where Vikram’s parents and Tarini’s extended family live.
Tarini runs Muse, the multi-designer store at Mumbai’s heritage precinct Kala Ghoda and her mother Sangita Jindal, a well-known philanthropist runs the Jindal Arts Centre at NCPA. While India’s top Wedding vendors have been vying to lend their services for the Jindal wedding, the friends of the family are looking forward to what is expected to be the classiest Indian wedding of 2011. WeddingSutra emailed Tarini requesting for more details, but she sent a prompt and polite reply stating that at this point, she’d like to keep all the details private.
In June this year, the Jindals hosted their younger daughter Tanvi’s marriage in Florence. Guests referred to the fairy-tale wedding of Tanvi and Krishna Shete as the most amazing experience, and the Italian media called it the Maharaja-style wedding of an Indian Princess. The functions included a welcome-luncheon at the lavish lawns of the Four Seasons hotel and a dinner at Palazzo Corsini, the magnificent palace overlooking the Arno River. The main wedding function was at Villa Le Rose, the luxurious villa owned by the Ferragamo family. The food spread at the different functions included an all-vegetarian spread of Italian, Lebanese, and Indian specialities from Mumbai, Kolkata, Jaipur and Benares, created by Italy’s Galateo caterers, Delhi’s celebrity chef Ritu Dalmia and London based V8 Gourmet Global Group.
