Only the groom and his father were attended the wedding. The bridge was opened for 15 minutes by government permission. The couple entered wedlock within 12 minutes and head back home in a quarter-hour.
The couple was welcomed by the Indian security personnel at Dharchula as they entered India through the border bridge on river Kali.
