The path to true love is not always smooth Shakespeare said.

How does a Russian marry a Ukrainian when their countries are at war?

Simple. Go to Dharamshala, Himachal Pradesh. That's what Sergei Novikov and Elona Bramoka did.

Take that Vladimir Putin. 

Elona and Sergei decided to get married as per Hindu customs, saat pheras and all that.

They both looked rather fetching in the bright-coloured silks and zari.

Don't they?
