Germany's Chris Muller married Russian Julia Ukhvakatina in a Hindu ceremony with all the rituals in line. According to a report, Muller belongs to a wealthy household in Germany.

In order to tie the knot, they met Lalabhai Patel, who organized a marriage ceremony for them in his village. The German-Russian couple wore traditional Hindu attire and carried out all the rituals together with Saptapadi (seven rounds around the fire). Mr Lalabhai Patel supervised the whole ceremony. They had a Ganesh Puja as well as a Haldi ceremony, which is a popular Hindu wedding tradition.
