Panjim, Oct.25 (ANI): Two hundred and forty Germans, who are in India to have a look at Indian culture, saw how an Indian wedding takes place. A mock wedding was held for them, who are interested particularly in hair styles.

Natasha Naegamvala, who conceptualised the visit of the Germans, felt that the best way to give them an exposure to Indian culture, including different kinds of hairstyles, was to arrange for the mock wedding.

They were also shown a Bollywood movie which featured a wedding.

“I was told me that they wanted to watch an Indian wedding as shown in a Bollywood movie. In addition to the actual marriage, they were also shown a movie,” said Natasha Naegamvala, hair designer from Mumbai.

“I put up the things in a way so that they can learn as well as enjoy the Indian culture and tradition. The Germans were fantastic and their response was also great . The guests said that they saw more than what they expected” said Natasha Naegamvala, hair designer from Mumbai.

The entire set up for the mock marriage was given a traditional look. The guests were offered drinks and Goan food on the wedding ceremony.

Cornelia, one of the German guests, said that she liked the whole concept and really enjoyed the party which gave her a chance to relish Indian culture to the fullest.

“It was so beautiful and the style of the people in India is really great. The people over here are so relaxed and they are very friendly,” said Cornelia.

Udo Brand, another German, said that they learnt about the Indian culture and traditional wedding style.

“The party was amazing and we have learnt about the Indian culture and tradition. It was so impressive and we really enjoyed it,” said Udo Brand, another German.

During the wedding ceremony, the German nationals were attired in Indian clothes like Kurta-Pyjama and Pagri (turban). The ladies wore sarees. (ANI)
