Dia Mirza reflects on Vaibhav Rekhi and her decision over having a female priestess conducting their wedding.

Dia Mirza and Vaibhav Rekhi’s wedding was the most shining example of a perfect wedding earlier this week. The couple got married in a cordial manner and also uploaded many happy pictures from their wedding ceremony on social media. Many fans quickly took notice that the wedding was conducted by a female priest which is a rare occurrence when it comes to Hindu marriages.

 
Dia has now shined more light upon this in a recent interview. She said, “ The highest point for us was the Vedic ceremony conducted by a woman priest! I had never seen a woman performing a wedding ceremony until I attended my childhood friend Ananya’s wedding a few years ago. Ananya’s wedding gift to Vaibhav and me was to bring Sheela Atta who is her aunt and also a priestess, to perform the ceremony for us. She also painstakingly went through several hours of training to imbibe the essence of the scriptures so that she could assist Sheela Atta and translate the shlokas! It was such a privilege and a joy to be married this way.”
 
“Also, we said NO to ‘Kanyadaan’ and ‘Bidaai’ change begins with choice doesn’t it? #GenerationEquality #SunsetkeDiVaNe #ThankYouPreeta",” she added.
