27-year-old Ajay Barot from Gujarat always dreamed of getting married.
And while he did eventually get a wedding of his dreams, this one was a little unusual. There was no bride.
According to a report by the Indian Express, Ajay has a learning disability, due to which his family couldn't find a match for him.
But they decided to fulfill his dream of getting married by organising a lavish wedding.
The family distributed wedding invitations and organised all the ceremonies including haldi and sangeet.
Ajay dressed up as a groom and around 200 people became a part of his wedding procession, after which there was a grand dinner.
Talking to TOI, Ajay's uncle said:
"Ajay has been very fond of attending weddings. This February when my son got married, he was disappointed that his wedding wasn’t being organised. So I spoke to the family members and everyone agreed to this idea."
Ajay's brother said that the family could do anything to see him happy. He added:
"Ajay’s dance at his own wedding procession will be one to remember for the rest of our lives. All families with special children should fulfill their desires. It can be a positive step in their lives."
The unusual wedding soon caught people's attention on Twitter and they appreciated the family for their efforts.
This is so touching. Kudos to the Dad and the family to have such a spirit. An example many families should learn from.— Sailing Cloud (@twinitisha) May 13, 2019

In times when brothers, sons, daughters are fighting over puny issues of money and property, this family serves as an exemplery that home is made not by bricks or cement but by people, their love, care, by a FAMILY. Ajay Barot is a very lucky chap!
