NEW DELHI: Dinesh S P and Janaganandhini Ramaswamy, a Tamil Nadu couple are planning to hold their wedding reception in Metaverse and will marry in Tamil Nadu's Sivalingapuram hamlet on the first Sunday of February.
The pair will turn on their laptops after the wedding ceremony to join a virtual venue for their Hogwarts-themed celebration, which will be attended by friends and family members from all around the world. Dinesh is a software developer and a blockchain and NFT enthusiast, while Jaganandhini is an engineer.
Jaganandhini's late father's avatar will preside over the wedding, which will be attended by avatars of visitors. She discusses how the reception is a fantastic concept, given that the two met on Instagram and will now have one of their wedding functions in the metaverse.
Bride Jaganandhini Ramaswamy is equally delighted about her virtual event, claiming that since the couple met on Instagram, having a wedding reception on Metaverse was only natural.
The wedding event will take place in Suvalingapuram village on February 6. Metaverse creates rich user engagement by combining augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), blockchain, and social media principles. The groom engaged Vignesh Selvaraj of Quatics Tech, who specialized in web and mobile app development, to put his reception plans into reality. Users can customize their avatars by giving them names, outfits, styles, and personalities. The goal is to create a virtual environment that looks and feels like the real one.
On Twitter, Dinesh posted a photo of the wedding invitation and stated, "I'm very happy and grateful that I've noticed and taken advantage of many incredible possibilities in this world before millions of others have. It's the start of something big! The TardiVerse Metaverse business cooperated with India's first #metaverse marriage in Polygon blockchain."
