A meticulously planned wedding stood the risk of being ruined when the the marrying couple were asked to look for a different location for their wedding just 48 hours ago because of the President of India Ramnath Kovind’s visit to the hotel where the marriage was scheduled.
Hey @rashtrapatibhvn– anything you can do to help us with your security team so that we don’t have to move our wedding from the @Taj_Cochin in under 48 hours? https://t.co/0S5y9az9Hk

An anxious bride, Ashley Hall, took to Twitter to express her trepidations about her marriage. Hall tagged the official Twitter handle of the President @Rashtrapatibhvn asking for their intervention from their security team so that they don’t have to shift their marriage from Taj Malabar Cochin to some other location.
Hall was obviously perturbed that despite planning her destination wedding well in advance for over 8 months in a luxury hotel in India, she got a 48 hours notice to plan an entirely new setup somewhere else just because President of India was an impromptu trip to the same hotel where her wedding was planned.
Taking cognisance of the couple’s anxieties, President Kovind intervened to allay their misgivings and ensure that the couple had an extremely memorable wedding at their chosen destination. While there is no official word on how the security arrangements were managed, Hall’s tweet suggests that things were well taken care of.
What a whirlwind! I am simply blown away by the generosity and kindness of His Excellency @rashtrapatibhvn. The incredible staff at @Taj_Cochin has made our wedding absolutely unforgettable. Thank you to those following, I’ve learned so much. Atithi Devo Bhava?? #AshWedsAbhi https://t.co/qPvPX6kKIU pic.twitter.com/aNIt4woSB6
