THE UNION OF TWO YOUNG HEARTS IS NO doubt one of life’s happiest occasions and so was it for Athang Jain and Ambika Bohra, who pledged eternal togetherness as they embarked upon their journey as a couple this February. The grand occasion saw the Jain parivaar take the baraat from Jalgaon to Jaipur to bask in the glory of their Marawari heritage, while the Bohras welcomed the baraat with warmest of hearts and unmatched grace. The son of Anil and Nisha Jain, Athang Jain is the eldest scion of Jain Irrigation Systems Ltd of Jalgaon (which was founded by his grandfather Bhavarlal Jain), while Ambika Bohra is the daughter of Rohit and Shivani Bohra of Jaipur.
The simple but elegant shaadi took place at the Taj Jai Mahal Palace in Jaipur, which wore a festive look with hues of yellow drapes adorned with golden bells nestled between its walls. Ambika’s vibrant personality was magnified by her red lehenga, while Athang’s calm demeanour reflected in his ivory sherwani. What followed was a feast adorned by manvaar and delectable Rajasthani treats.
By the evening, the families were all set to present the newlyweds to the world. The City Palace enclosure seemed to revel as the chandeliers shone on the pink interiors, and the guests enjoyed the gala reception. The festivities continued to Jalgaon where thousands came to give their aashirwaad to the couple.
Dome, the venue for a special reception in Mumbai, was witness one of the most magical chapters of the wedding, where more well-wishers came to bless the couple. As Ambika and Athang smiled and laughed and posed for the shutterbugs, their inseparable hearts seemed to be in perfect harmony.
