Mina Muzumdar |Mar 08, 2019

The wedding of Isha Ambani - daughter of billionaire Mukesh Ambani - was attended by many familiar faces and superstars. Studied Psychology in college, Ambani, however, chose to follow her father’s footsteps and become a businesswoman. Before Mukesh Ambani's second son, Akash Ambani ties the knot, let's have a look back at one of the most extravagant weddings in India history.

Isha Ambani, 27-year-old, is the daughter of Mukesh Ambani, an oil tycoon and tech mogul who is, according to Forbes, the richest person in Asia. Her mother is Nita Ambani, a well-known art collector and businesswoman. As the saying goes, “like father like daughter”, Isha is voted by Forbes amongst the list of “12 Asian women of the New Age” in 2015.

Hundreds of baskets of flowers were prepared for Isha Ambani wedding. Although Isha was raised in a Western-heavy culture, the bride and groom still preferred a classic and traditional Indian wedding over a Western-style one, from the way they dressed up to how the wedding was decorated.

The pre-wedding took place in Udaipur - Oberoi Udaivilas and City Palace.

There was a special guest at Isha Ambani wedding, the former US First Lady and US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Anand Piramal graduated from the University of Pennsylvania majored in Economy and finished his master’s degree in business administration from Harvard. He is the founder of Piramal Realty, one of the biggest real estate firms in India. Isha and Anand have been remaining a close-knit friendship as the two families have known each other for more than 40 years.

US singer Beyoncé was invited to perform at Isha and Anand sangeet ceremony.

Ambani’s 27-story house was chosen to be the wedding venue. Reportedly, it is one of the world most expensive residence.

The couple tied the knot on 12 December at Ambani’s home, Antilia, Mumbai.
