Dia Mirza tied the knot with Vibhav Rekhi in an intimate and quaint wedding last week. The actress, who’s been a strong voice when it comes to sustainability and environmental issues incorporated some brilliant and progressive practices in her wedding ceremony. From using only biodegradable materials for the decor to having a priestess perform the rituals, Dia kept her wedding simple yet impactful in many ways. 

Dia Mirza

Penning down everything she did unconventionally for the ceremony, Dia wrote, “The garden where I have spent every morning for the past 19 years was an absolutely magical setting and the most intimate and perfect space for our simple and soulful ceremony! We are so proud to have been able to organise a completely sustainable ceremony without plastics or any waste. The materials used for the minimal decor we went for were completely biodegradable and natural.”

Speaking of the priestess conducting the wedding rituals, she added, “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! We do hope with all our heart that many more couples make this choice.”

Further mentioning that she and Vaibhav agreed to scrape off Kanyaadan and Vidaai from their wedding to bring about some change in the long living tradition of giving away the bride to the husband and his family.
