Covid-19 has put a halt on many wedding plans for couples, but this couple wasn’t going to let that get in the way, even after the bride tested positive for the virus.

A couple in northern India decided to carry on with their wedding in Rajasthan state’s Baran district on Sunday (6 December) after the bride tested positive for Covid-19 on the wedding day itself. The wedding was held at a Covid-19 care centre where the couple wore protective suits for the ceremony.

A video of the ceremony that went viral on social media shows the couple, the priest and three close relatives wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) as the couple made their vows during the traditional Hindu ceremony.


Also present at the event were three regional officials to ensure that everything was done in accordance with the standard operating procedures (SOP) including physical distancing, reported SCMP.

Prior to the ceremony, chaos ensued as the health teams received the Covid-19 results at the last minute and rushed to stop the bride and her family from reaching the wedding venue. The family were then asked to report to the Covid-19 centre instead.

“The families were in a dilemma, but insisted that, according to customs, they had to go ahead with the wedding since some initial rituals were done. Respecting their sentiments, the administration gave the approval for the marriage at the centre with all necessary checks,” said local health official Sheikh Arif, who supervised the wedding.


At the Covid-19 centre, health authorities provided PPE for the couple and their relatives and also set up a small canopy for the ceremony.

“We were really tense but managed to conduct this unusual marriage in times of Covid. The bride and her mother, who also tested positive, are now quarantined at the centre. We will do follow-up tests and it is only when she [the bride] gets a negative Covid-19 report that we will release her and she can go to her husband’s place,” Arif said.
