He further said, "For the ceremony, everything was sanitised including the garlands. Here, everyone maintained social distancing and wore, mask and face shield."

"Having this kind of low-cost wedding at a time when everything is pricey is actually good," he added.

Not speaking much about her feelings, Aditi shyly said, "I had never thought that my wedding would be held during a lockdown. It feels good." Meanwhile, Richa, sister of Narang, said that the guidelines of the Central Government were sincerely followed during the ceremony.

"For maintaining social distance, from each side of the family only five members physically attended the wedding and the rest attended by being virtually present," she said.
