Pre-Wedding Cruise: A Voyage of Love 


The Ambani pre-wedding celebrations took to the high seas with a lavish pre-wedding cruise in May. The cruise was spanned across four days, making stops across the Mediterranean from May 29 to June 1. With 1200 guests, including celebrities like Adam Sandler, this cruise was the Ambanis’ way of giving back to the people who have given them so much.

The cruise began in Palermo, with a beautiful welcome lunch for the guests. The night was a dreamy, starry party, where Radhika sparkled in her gown designed by Robert Wun, which had a love letter from Anant Ambani printed on it. Yes, a new level of cuteness is unlocked!

As the ship sailed through Rome, the second night featured a toga party. The college sweethearts wanted to pay tribute to their alma maters, NYU and Brown, so they themed the party around it. And guess who was the DJ of this college bash? David Guetta. 

The third night was a Masquerade Ball in Cannes. Anant Ambani and Radhika Merchant stole the show in their custom Dolce & Gabbana and Versace ensembles, respectively. But the cherry on top was the fiery performance of Katy Perry’s “Firework,” followed by an unexpected concert by Pitbull. 


The final stop was Portofino, where the Ambanis transformed the main square into an open-air market with food stalls, creating a magical end to an unforgettable celebration.
