Weddings are both an endearing and a gruelling affair. Clearly, there goes a lot of behind making a wedding special, especially if it’s a destination wedding. But what if you are told that you would have to change the venue 48 hours before the wedding? Dreadful right?
The same happened with a US couple who had planned an extravaganza destination wedding in India at a five-star hotel in Kochi.
However, the US resident Ashley Hall, when arrived at the hotel, was told that she would have to change the venue because President of India, Ramnath Kovind, was to stay at the same hotel and the hotel can’t compromise with his security.
The disappointed bride took on Twitter to express her concerns.
The wedding has been scheduled at the Taj Vivanta Hotel in Kochi for Tueday. Giving it a last try, Ashley tweeted to the President’s office on January 5 urging for some relief.

Surely adhering to India’s Atithi Devo Bhava culture, the officials took necessary action to ensure the couple doesn’t have to face trouble.
Though there was no official tweet from the official Twitter account of Rashtrapati Bhavan, the necessary action to assure a wedding have been taken.
Confirming the same was Ashley who thanked the Rashtrapati Bhavan office in a tweet.
I want to thank the @Taj_Cochin and State Officials for working on this with us throughout the day. Hoping we can have a beautiful wedding with the blessings of The Honorable @rashtrapatibhvn. https://t.co/i6lR4D9YDQ— Ashley Hall (@hall_ash) January 5, 2020
Happens to be, President’s security was scaled down and he was to leave Kochi on Tuesday morning itself to avoid any inconvenience to the wedding party, said security officials.
Later, the President also inundated the couple with wishes for there “the Day”.
