The gathering of Pure Vivaah included the entire Dholakia family with the partners and well-wishers. The management team of Shree Ramkrishna Exports performed the kanyadaan of the brides. The notable thing about this group wedding was that SRK's management team got the privilege of doing the kanyadaan together. As a token of love, the newly-weds were blessed with valuables worth Rs. 3 lacs as wedding gift by the company, and they were also given saplings of the pious Tulsi as a unique initiative to create public awareness over environment conservation.

Shri Govindkaka, Founder- Chairman of SRKKF remarked, “All the brides who are getting married are like our daughters. We have organised the Pure Vivaah ceremony in such a manner and in such an environment that they get the feeling of getting married at their own homes and not in a community marriage ceremony.”

SRKKF under the guidance of their Founder-Chairman under ‘Pure Vivaah’ has successfully hosted marriages of nearly 750 couples so far and helped them step into this divine relationship.

A notable event during the ceremony was that SRKKF felicitated the daughters who have brought glory to the nation in various fields.
