Who says never the twins shall meet?
« on: November 17, 2015, 05:53:37 PM »

Double take! Two sets of identical twins marry.. each other, with identical twin pageboys, bridesmaids... and even priests

Dinker and Dilraj Varikkassery spent five years searching for perfect wives

Decided as teenagers they could only marry another set of identical twins

Found sisters Reena and Reema, nurses, also hunting for twin grooms

Waited to marry for twin priests to conduct ceremony in Kerala State, India


By SANJAY PANDEY IN KERALA, INDIA FOR MAILONLINE
12 November 2015

Those attending the weddings of Dinker and Dilraj Varikkassery would be forgiven for leaving with a serious sense of deja vu.

Because not only were the grooms identical, but so were the brides - and the page boys, flowers girls and even the priests.

The wedding, held in Thrissur, Kerala State on India's west coast, was everything the brothers had ever dreamed of, the result of a five year, painstaking search for the most identical sisters they could find.

Their only regret? That there weren't more twins at the ceremony.


Double take: Brothers Dinker and Dilraj Varikkassery married sisters Reena and Reema in a lavish ceremony overseen by twin priests, who travelled 600km to be at the wedding in Kerala

Search: The brothers, who work in IT, decided when they were teenagers that they wanted to marry identical twin sisters and they spent five years finding their perfect wives


Mirror images: Their wedding was an all twin affair with not only the bride and groom, but flower girls Ansa, Asna and page boys Henry and Hendri specially chosen because they are twins too

Dinker and Dilraj first decided they would marry identical twin sisters when they were at high school.

From a young age, they were inseparable, spending every minute they could together, always wearing similar clothes - just in case people needed to be reminded they were twins.

'Even in matriculation exam, we scored similar marks,' Dinker revealed.
'After graduating from college, we even landed job in the same company (HCL).'

But then the unthinkable happened.

'For the first time our life, we were separated after starting our professional career. I was posted in north India, while the company sent Dilraj to the extreme south,' said 32-year-old Dinker.

Five years ago, the pair decided it was time to settle down. Of course, it couldn't be just anyone, and they turned to the newspaper to aid their hunt for their wives.

'Many proposals came following our ads in newspapers and matrimonial sites,' Dinker said.

'But there was a problem: 'The twins were not identical enough. Also, we had to find twins who came from the similar family backgrounds.'


Future: Five years ago, the brothers decided it was time to settle down and find themselves wives - but realised only another set of twins, with a similar background to themselves, would do

Determination: Nurses Reena and Reema had spent three years searching for the perfect husbands for themselves


Joy: Then, through a marriage portal, they were introduced to Reema and Reena, twin sisters who had also decided that only a set of twin brothers would be good enough for them

Delight: Reena told MailOnline of the moment the sisters finally found their future husbands. 'When we saw Dilraj and Dinker we nodded yes to each other' she said

It was quite a task, especially considering there are on average just one set of twins for every 100 babies born in India.

The IT professionals even created a group on Facebook called the All Kerala Twins Group, which now boasts more than 300 members. 

'Occasionally, we would also organise a get-together by pooling in money from the members,' said Dilraj.

'The aim was to get suitable twin brides for ourselves.'

Still, though, they could not find their perfect match.

But then the brothers struck gold, meeting Reena and Reema through a 'matrimonial portal'.

Dilraj revealed: 'When we met Reena and Reema, we knew it was them we were looking for all this while. Fortunately, they also had the similar feeling after meeting us.'

Like the twin brothers, the girls also studied in the same school, went to the same college to train as nurses and also landed jobs at the same firm in Dubai.


Inseparable: Both sets of twins have been close ever since they were children, dressing similarly, attending the same schools, university and getting jobs at the same company after they graduated

Neighbours: These children were chosen to be part of the wedding because they lived nearby. In Kerala, where the couple live, there is a village with more than 200 sets of twins


Passionate: The men have even set up a Facebook group called the All Kerala Twins Group so that they could meet more twins, which now boasts more than 300 members

Perfection: But after so many years, neither set of twins was likely to want a normal wedding - and they set out to make it the most twin-filled event that they possibly could

And they too knew they were destined to marry twin brothers.

Reena told MailOnline:  'We had to keep searching the suitable boys for three years in a row. When we saw Dilraj and Dinker we nodded yes to each other. It was a wonderful experience.'

Many proposals came following our ads in newspapers and matrimonial sites. But the twins were not identical enough. - Dinker

Organising the perfect twins' wedding is about more than just ensuring the brides and grooms are perfect mirror images, however.

The couples set about hunting down twin priests to solemnise their marriage.
Luckily, the brothers had already met the perfect candidates through one of their get togethers.

The only problem was, the priests Rezi and Rozy Manaparambil had a full calendar.

'We had to wait for months for the priests to come solemnise our wedding,' Dilraj said.

'But it was worth it.'

The priests travelled 600km from Chennai to Thrissur for the ceremony on November 8.

The identical flower girls Ansa and Asna and page boys Henry and Hendri didn't need to travel quite so far, coming from their neighbourhood.

But they weren't the only twins at the ceremony, held at St. Xavier's Church, in the small town of Pullur.


Twin times: In total, there were seven sets of twins at the ceremony including priests, who travelled 600km from their homes to conduct the ceremony in Thrissur, Kerala State on the west coast

Big day: But Dilraj told MailOnline he wanted even more there - adding: 'In our twins get-together, usually there will around 10 to 12 sets of twins, but I could arrange only seven twins for my wedding'

In total, seven sets of twins attended - including the brides and grooms.
It was, a disappointed Dilraj said, not enough.

'In our twins get-together, usually there will be around 10 to 12 sets of twins, but I could arrange only seven twins for my wedding,' he added.
