Mithra had always dreamed of a fantasy Bollywood-style wedding...as you'll see from this video - she certainly got it when she exchanged vows with Ahilan in Melbourne in both a traditional Sri Lankan ceremony followed by a western reception party.

As you'd imagine, the couple's traditional ceremony was packed with colour with gold galore and floral garlands aplenty- watch the video for a glimpse into the age-old traditions that make it so special.

Ahilan looks majestic in his red, gold and cream attire complete with turban; while Mithra's saree in red, pink, orange and gold is just breathtaking - and the couple's next-day outfits are just as sublime with the groom looking dashing in a tux and the bride just beautiful in cream and gold.

I have to say though, the dancing steals the show, whether it's the happy couple's fantastic first dance or the groomsmen's entertaining choreography - who needs to pay for entertainment if you know people with moves like these? I loved listening to snippets from all the speeches and I think you will too. In fact, you'll feel like you've stepped onto the set of a Bollywood blockbuster - and you might not want to come back! Scroll down to watch their wedding highlights
