wedding in the skyThe Dubai-based NRI family that owns the diamond jewelry brand – Popley and Sons – founded in 1927, has a history of weddings in the sky. The bride’s father, Dilip Popley, had got married on an Air India flight between Mumbai and Ahmedabad in 1994. Organized by Air India with approval from the regulatory bodies, the inflight wedding was the first such historic event in the world of aviation. When Dilip’s father approached the then national carrier for an unconventional wedding, the airline responded, “The Sky is the limit.”

The wedding event on Air India’s A310, which made headlines as “Hawai Bandhan”, was such a lavish affair that celebrity chef Sanjeev Kapoor had designed the menu for the guests. “My wedding in the air was my dad’s dream. He wanted to get me married on an Air India plane. Now I am carrying his dream to another level with my daughter’s wedding on a B747 aircraft,” said Dilip Popley with pride.The guests for the Vidhi-Hridesh wedding on B747 were handed over boarding passes designed with traditional motifs of Indian wedding. The groom wearing a cream-colored sherwani and the bride wearing a red lehenga with delicate golden work arrived in a red Ferrari at a private terminal in South Dubai where their close family members and friends received them in an impressive manner. They boarded the aircraft decorated with exotic flowers inside for a 3-hour flight cum wedding ceremony.
