An Indian couple wanted to organized their wedding at the Palace of Parliament in Bucharest, but the Romanian authorities turned them down.

Their request dates back in 2016, when they approached the Parliament building’s officials to see if they could organize their wedding with 400 guests there. The Indian pair live in Dubai, but they had their eyes on the Romanian deluxe landmark palace built by former communist ruler Nicolae Ceausescu.

As they were refused, they eventually chose another opulent palace in Turkey.

The Palace of Parliament hasn’t hosted weddings for years, with the halls being rented for New Year’s Eve parties, conferences, balls or fairs.

A representative of Viadora Travel said that the manager of a travel agency from India told them they had a client who would like the wedding being hosted in a special, original venue. “They had 400 guests, an Indian wedding usually lasts three days and three nights and after that they also wanted a three-day tour through the palace for their guests. I suggested the Palace of Parliament as it was the only one location that met all standards,” Viadora Travel’s Cecilia Enache told, who also revealed they had another three or four requests of this kind.

The Palace of Parliament officials told them they were not hosting weddings anymore, so they chose a palace in Turkey that belonged to a sultan.
