The Spanish man eventually decided that he wanted to marry Mridula
The number of foreign nationals marrying Indians continues to grow as a Spanish man married an Indian woman in a traditional ceremony.
Their marriage took place on November 8, 2019, in the city of Jodhpur, Rajasthan. Spanish national Luis Carlos Isaaja married Mridula Sharma in a traditional procession.
The ceremony was attended by both sets of families as well as their friends.
The newly married couple first met in 2016 through mutual friends while working in Vienna, Austria. While Luis ran a fashion accessories business, Mridula worked as an engineer.
As Luis and Mridula got to know each other they started to become attracted to each other. They soon got into a relationship.
The Spanish man eventually decided that he wanted to marry Mridula. However, when he proposed she was initially confused.
Mridula felt that her parents would not approve of the relationship and she believed it would be difficult to convince them to allow her to marry a foreign national.
When her boyfriend encouraged her, Mridula spoke to her parents and told them that Luis is a caring and respectful young man.
Her parents were hesitant at first but they called Luis and his parents, approving of the marriage and telling him to make their daughter happy.
Luis travelled to Mridula’s home of Jodhpur with his parents Monto Liveno and Roja. They spoke to Mridula’s parents who requested that they should have a traditional ceremony.
Luis accepted their request, saying that he knew about the customs after speaking to Mridula.
Mridula’s father is a businessman while her mother is a housewife. The father of Luis works as a dentist and his mother is a painter.
The wedding took place on November 8, 2019. Prior to the big day there were pre-wedding festivities ,which involved rituals for Luis.
Luis even participated in a ‘baraat’ where he arrived to the venue on a white horse.
The wedding between Luis and Mridula took place at a hotel.
While the wedding followed traditional proceedings, they made adjustments to the wedding cards in order to avoid insulting different cultures and beliefs.

Preeti worked for a multinational company in Sweden when she befriended her colleague Edwin. Over time, their friendship soon became a relationship.
They eventually wanted to get married but Preeti’s family were initially against it.
Edwin’s family decided to speak to Preeti’s family in a bid to change their minds. The conversation successfully convinced the parents of Preeti to approve the marriage as all began with the preparations for the ceremony.
Edwin and Preeti first married at a registry office in Sweden before flying to India to have a traditional ceremony.
