Approximately 500 guests have been invited to the marriage of Rohan Mehta and his bride Roshni, a London-raised owner of a fashion company.
Mr Mehta is the only son of Yogesh Mehta, a millionaire who established the Petrochem, a Dubai-based chemical distributing company he founded in 1995.After setting up his business in the Middle East, he has reportedly amassed a sum of $623million.
It is expected that Rohan will play a bigger role in the company in the coming years after completing a degree in business from Northeastern University in Boston.
Rohan also owns the Raging Tiger events company, staging a number of concerts and balls across the United Arab Emirates.
According to Daily Mail, the three-day wedding kicked off on Wednesday with guests arriving in Italy from all parts of the world.
Lavish arrangements of dancing, food, music and performances are assured by the entrepreneur to keep the guests entertained throughout the three-day event.
Celebrations were planned to have the groom arrive on an elephant but according to Italian media reports, Florence City Council refused a request for him to arrive at the ceremony on an elephant citing health and safety issues and animal welfare concerns.
But that didn’t cause any hindrance to the festivities. The groom arrived atop his friends’ shoulders amid a sea of pink turbans.
The newlyweds are expected to settle in Dubai.
Here are some more snaps portraying the extent of the lavish event.
