In a lovely change from the usual extravagant destination wedding trends, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman opted for an intimate and candid celebration when her daughter, Parakala Vangamayi, tied the knot in a simple but memorable home ceremony.
The event took place in Bangalore, radiating warmth with the presence of dear family members and close friends, without any political heavyweights.
The wedding took place with the utmost reverence for Brahmin traditions as the seers of the esteemed Udupi Adamaru Mutt blessed the union of the bride and groom, Parakala and Prateek.
Parakala looked resplendent in a stunning pink saree adorned with a complementary green blouse, while Prateek exuded grace in a traditional white pancha and shawl.
The mother of the bride, Nirmala Sitharaman, graced the occasion in a regal Molakalmuru saree, adding a touch of elegance to the celebration.
The marriage procedures followed the sacred Vedic rituals of Adamaru Mutt, infusing the ceremony with spiritual meaning and timeless traditions.
Vangamayi, the daughter of Nirmala Sitharaman, is a talented feature writer at Mint Lounge.
He holds an MA in English from the prestigious University of Delhi, and his pursuit of knowledge extended to Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism, where he earned an MA in Journalism.
In September 2019, Sitharaman lovingly shared a photo from the past with Parakala, describing her as not only a daughter, but also a dear friend, philosopher, and guide.
