In a private and intimate ceremony, Parakala Vangamayi, the daughter of Nirmala Sitharaman, exchanged vows with her partner Prateek in Bengaluru. The wedding, held at their residence, was a modest affair attended by close friends and family members. Notably, no political leaders were extended invitations, as reported by the media.
Following the traditional Brahmin customs, the wedding took place under the guidance of seers from the Udupi Adamaru Mutt, who blessed the couple. The sacred rituals were conducted in accordance with the Vedic order of Adamaru Mutt.

Videos that have gone viral captured the bride, Vangamayi, wearing a pink saree, while the groom, Prateek, donned a white shawl and pancha. Nirmala Sitharaman was seen elegantly dressed in a blue saree with a vibrant orange blouse.
