    Society bigwigs, tycoons and film personalities turned up in full force this month to celebrate the wedding of Ashwin Grover, son of business magnate Kimi Grover and socialite Pamela Grover. The fourday extravaganza was held at the JW Marriott hotel in Venice.

    The guest list included Parmeshwar Godrej, Gauri Khan, Jaya Bachchan with daughter Shweta Nanda, Kaajal Anand, Neetu Kapoor with sister in law Reema Kapoor, Tina Ambani, Manish Malhotra (who designed the bride's outfit for the sangeet), Aparna aka Pinky Reddy, Karan Johar and Sanjay and Anu Hinduja among others.

    A welcome dinner was hosted for guests on June 12 at the Belmond Hotel, Ciprani. The bride Riya Khilnani exchanged rings with groom at a lavish open-air setting. Guests sampled from a menu that included dishes such as lobster salad, beetroot carpaccio and sea bass with baby squid.

    Also spotted at the event was Pamela's brother-in-law Lalit Modi, currently under fire for seeking BJP leader Sushma Swaraj's help in travelling outside the UK while he was barred by the Indian government from doing so. Modi was at the event with his wife and daughter.

    One of the highl ights of the wedding was the dance performance by Neetu and Reema Kapoor during the sangeet. Pamela and Kimi's elder son Kunal's wedding celebrations were held in Cannes in 2013 and was also attended by the likes of Shah Rukh Khan, Rakesh and Pinky Roshan.
