The wedding reception of Yaduveer Krishnadatta Chamaraja Wadiyar and Trishika was held on Tuesday evening and more than 2,000 people attended the event that was held inside the Durbar Hall of the Mysuru Palace.
While Yaduveer wore a golden coloured brocade Angarka and traditional antique jewellery, Trishika wore a red saree and both of them sat on the Bhadrasana – a two-seater silver couch – and acknowledged the invitees and guests with smiles.
Most of the invitees were from the Ursu community and members of other royal families. With lights, decorations, royal costumes and the colourful dresses worn by the invitees and the couple, it was a complete marriage atmosphere. Added to the glitter was the illuminated palace. The main attraction was the Sajje where the Bhadrasana was kept. Melodious tunes of the English and the Mysuru police Carnatic band regaled the guests.
Members of royal families from Jodhpur, Hyderabad, Jaipur and Mewad and those from prominent clubs like Bengaluru Turf Club, Mysuru Race Club and other sports clubs greeted the couple.
Unable to hold their excitement, a few minutes into the reception, the couple sprang a surprise and made their way towards the guests who were delighted to see them at close quarters and tried to capture the historical event through their mobile phones.
Large digital screens were set up inside the hall that helped others seated at a distance to watch the proceedings and the guests were seen greeting Pramoda Devi Wadiyar who sat beside the portrait of late Srikantadatta Narasimharaja Wadiyar.
The English band and the Mysuru Police Carnatic band played tunes from Indian classical music, adding to the splendour. The English band was led by Alfred Kumar who played European composition as the royal couple arrived at the Sajje.
A big feast was arranged for the guests with more than 25 different types of dishes. Masala idly, Gobi Manchurian, Indian breads with north Indian curries, channa-batura, mango sliced fruit sweet, Jahangir, vegetable biryani and the regular rice-sambar-rasam and majjige were served.
