The Hindu ceremony, which lasted four hours saw the guest order food via their mobile devices on a website which was then safely delivered by waiting staff and guest were only permitted to leave the safety of their vehicles to use the bathroom facilities.
Roma said: ‘Both of us had the most amazing day and we have since had so many calls and messages from guests saying how much they enjoyed the experience and felt part of it.
