The Kingdom of Bahrain hosted a major Indian wedding for the Agarawal and Singh Uppal families of New Delhi between the 23rd and 26th of April 2019 at Sofitel Bahrain Zallaq Thalassa Sea and Spa Hotel. The event brought together more than 550 guests who arrived to Bahrain via Bahrain's national carrier, Gulf Air; most of the invitees arrived from various Indian cities, including Mumbai and Delhi.
The ceremony was held over a period of four days and included a number of events beginning with a special dinner ceremony to welcome the newlyweds. The Indian Henna occasion was celebrated the following day. A traditional pre-wedding ceremony’’Sanjeet’’ also took place at the hotel.
Bahrain Tourism and Exhibitions Authority also organized a Bahraini Souq “Bazar” which featured Bahraini craftsmen, such as pottery makers, ship modelers and palm leaf basket makers who exhibited their unique products to visitors in addition to a traditional live Ardha performance. At the end of the ceremony, the groom riding a decorated mare was ceremonially introduced to his bride.
Commenting on this special event, Advisor at the BTEA, Dr. Ali Hassan Follad, said, "The success in hosting this occasion stems from the prominent role of BTEA in planning and organizing the ceremony efficiently. We worked closely with the Ministry of Interior, Ministry of Information Affairs and other semi-official authorities including Bahrain Airport Company, the Airport Duty-Free market and Bahrain's national carrier, Gulf Air, to organize the event’s logistics and ensure the selection of appropriate locations. Further communications were also made with various suppliers and specialists.”
