With fresh curfew rules and restrictions in place amid the second wave of COVID-19, many have been forced to postpone or cancel their wedding plans. However, despite testing positive, a man in Madhya Pradesh went ahead with his nuptial ceremony, marrying his bride in  PPE kits! Now, video of the ceremony is going viral, leaving people on social media bemused.

In the video, the couple was seen wearing blue protective suits as they tied the knot at a marriage hall in Ratlam. Along with the couple, the priest and few close family members too were seen donning PPE suits.

The wedding took place with the permission of local administration after the groom had tested positive on April 19. The family members and police officials were part of the ceremony.

Watch the video here:

Navin Garg, Tehsildar, Ratlam told ANI that the authorities got to know about the groom testing positive and was getting married. They rushed to the venue to stop the ceremony. However, after reaching the venue, the couple and the other family members requested, and later, the wedding was solemnised in the presence of senior police officials. “The couple was made to wear PPE kits so the infection doesn’t spread,” Garg said.
