According to Harper’s Bazaar Arabia, the wedding venue is believed to be Stoke Park Estate in Buckinghamshire, a historic location nestled in the English countryside.

Forbes reported that Mukesh acquired the property for US$79 million in 2021. Located 35 minutes from London, this 300-acre luxury estate features lush greenery, a golf course, and an opulent hotel.

Anant and Radhika held their pre-wedding festivities from March 1-3 in the Indian city of Jamnagar. The event featured a performance by Barbadian pop and R&B artist Rihanna, for which the Ambani family is said to have paid 5 million pounds (US$6.3 million), according to the Daily Mail. The total expenditure for the lavish celebration is estimated at 120 million pounds.

Distinguished guests at the event included Meta’s chief Mark Zuckerberg, Microsoft’s co-founder Bill Gates, and former U.S. President Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka.

As their big day approaches, Anant and Radhika were spotted wedding shopping at Dubai’s City Walk mall last month.

In the same month, Radhika enjoyed a bridal shower themed after the young adult novel "Princess Diaries" and hosted by Bollywood actress Janhvi Kapoor. The event featured matching pajamas and playful mattress surfing down the stairs, reminiscent of scenes from the film.

Anant, 28, is the youngest child of Mukesh Ambani, who oversees the Reliance Industries conglomerate known for its impressive yearly revenue of US$110 billion.

According to Forbes on May 6, Mukesh’s fortune is estimated at US$113 billion, making him the wealthiest individual in Asia and the 11th richest globally.

Radhika, 29, is the daughter of Shri Viren Merchant, who leads the renowned Indian healthcare company Encore Healthcare.

Both Anant and Radhika are alumni of U.S. institutions.
