This was after the families had decided to carry on with the festivities.

The bride only identified as Surbhi reportedly collapsed from a heart attack while exchanging traditional garlands with husband-to-be Mangesh Kumar at the start of their ceremony.

A doctor from the local village was called to the scene but sadly he was unable to save her.

Following her death, the families of both parties agreed to continue with the wedding ceremony by replacing the bride with her sister, Nisha.

“We did not know what to do in the situation. Both the families sat together and someone suggested that my younger sister Nisha should be married to the groom,”  Surbhi’s brother said.

Surbhi’s body was kept in a separate room while the festivities took place and she was later cremated.

One of Surbhi’s uncles, Ajab Singh, told The Dailymail that it was a ‘tough call’ for the family to carry on with the wedding.

“It’s hard to believe a dead body was in the other room, and a bride was being prepared in the next one,” he said.

After the joy of the wedding, the family immediately held the last rites for the dead bride-to-be on what would have been her wedding day.

Meanwhile, the mother of the late bride Guddi Devi is still heartbroken and struggling to come to terms with her daughter’s death.
