Identical twins married to identical twins by identical twins

Dinker and Dilraj Varikkassery married identical twins Reena and Reema

Guests could be forgiven for thinking they were seeing things at one very special wedding in Kerala, India, this week.

Identical twins Dinker and Dilraj Varikkassery married identical twins Reena and Reema, in a ceremony officiated by identical twins, after a five year search for one another.

The boys had been inseparable all through school, university and even their careers (working for the same company) until they were posted to different ends of India, they told the Mail Online.

Afterwards, both men decided they wished to get married and set about finding identical twins – but it took them five years to meet their now-wives.

“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,” Dilraj told the Mail Online.

Reena said: “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.”

Both couples had identical twin bride maids and pageboys, and the ceremony was officiated by twin priests Rezi and Roy Manaparambil, who travelled from Chennai to Thrissur for the wedding. Altogether there were seven sets of twins present, but Dilraj had hoped for more.
