Hello dear visitor!

Welcome to our web page. This is an info page for our wedding (Phew... at last) at Bhopal(MP). It will have alot of information that you might not need but still good to know :)
For best experience use Chrome and a touchpad (as it scrolls very smoothly).

But now we hope you'll have a lot of fun browsing,
or – more to the point – scrolling.

Sehrin & Rafi

From A to B(hopal): The wedding venue.

You decide on your journey, of course, i. e. when to arrive and when to depart. If you are planning to get to know Sehrin’s beautiful home town more extensively, however, there is no reason why you shouldn’t arrive a bit earlier and/or leave later. If you will only be staying for the wedding, we suggest arrival on Thursday night and departure on Sunday afternoon.

Air travel

Bhopal has one airport only, so there is nothing to go wrong on, really. Just contact us before reaching and we will get you picked up from the airport.

By car

If you are a local and you want to reach the wedding venue directly, you can follow the map below.

By bus or train

For Outstationed and with lesser distances (Delhi), rail travel will probably be a better option than air travel.

How to find accommodation

As a guest you will be living with us. at Idgah Hills/Kohefiza depending on whom you want to see more (Sehrin or Rafi :D)

How to get around

We will provide transportation from the ceremony to the party location, of course. But once you are in town, you surely will want to see some of the sights Bhopal has to offer. Well, there are several options to get around, actually:

Taxi or ”chauffeur service”

Like in all big cities, you can get a taxi anywhere – so far, so good.
For booking affordable taxis can contact Mr Aazim (the jugadu) tel. +91-8085768085.

By the way: If you need a taxi or chauffeur on our party evening, just ask the {Party Location} staff. They will order it for you.

Rental car or own car?

Obviously, you are most flexible ’on your own four wheels’.
Please note: NO alcohol allowed for drivers, legally there is a zero alcohol tolerance. Jumping the lights (crossing a red light) has you lose your license if you get caught. Motorcyclists are allowed to pass on your right-hand side.
It might be worthwhile teaming up with somebody for renting a car. Really good rental car bargains can be found e.g. at

Public transport

Public transport basically sucks at Bhopal. So dont take this as a a viable option.

What a funny language...

Nobody will have to go as far as doing a language course to make an impression on the Bhopalis, but some basic vocabulary might come in handy.
The standard greeting, if people know each other, is a handshake, People are very friendly so they tend to hug when they meet. Males do that only if they are really close friends. If you are not quite sure, wait a second for your counterpart to approach you. At first encounters a handshake is appropriate.

What, When, Where?

The Nikah ceremony starts at around 4:30 p.m. (Namaz-e-Asr) at Idgah Masjid. in Bhopal.

After the ceremony we form a noisy, honking convoy of cars / shuttle bus and go to the dinner {Party Location}.

One thing at a time

For just a rough idea of what to expect on the day, please refer to the time schedule below. To leave room for a surprise here and there, not every detail has been added, of course.

Who are you wearing?

When it comes to dress code, everybody should wear what he or she likes best. Choose an outfit you feel good in. As we indicated before, the theme of our wedding is ”Tradition”, which means that more or less ’anything’ goes as long as it fits into that motto.
You’ve been dreaming about putting on your Mickey Mouse tie, but never had the chance? Your yellow chucks would match your evening dress just perfectly? Well, go for it then!
Obviously, you can also wear a classic outfit. We are happy as long as you’ve spruced yourself up a little and feel good about your attire.

So, basically, there are only a few things to be observed:

What’s that
supposed to mean?

Forget everything. Just come to Bhopal.
