Guests arrived from India to attend the lavish wedding of Vega Gupta and Aakash Jahajgarhia at Sun City's Palace of the Lost City.

The Hindu celebration began on Tuesday and continued with the sagai ceremony, during which the bride and groom exchanged rings.

The couple dressed in matching red and golden dresses walked towards the exquisite mandap for the final marital rituals, which was performed around havan among sacred recitations of Mantras by the Hindu priests.

As per traditions, seven vows were made to the life partner and seven pheres (circles) were taken around the mandap-agni.

The groom then applied vermillion or kumkum to the bride's forehead welcoming her as his partner for life. - Cape Times
