The sister of a bride who collapsed and died at her own wedding has reportedly married the groom instead.

The bride, named Surabhi, suffered a suspected cardiac arrest in the middle of the wedding ceremony in India’s Uttar Pradesh state, local outlet News18 reported.

A doctor rushed to her aid however she was confirmed dead at the scene.

Despite grieving the loss of their daughter, Surabhi’s family sat down with the family of the groom, Manoj Kumar, and decided to continue with festivities.

It was eventually decided one of Surabhi’s sisters, Nisha, would instead marry Mr Kumar.

“We did not know what to do in the situation,” Surabhi’s brother Saurabh told Indian news agency IANS.

“Both the families sat together and someone suggested that my younger sister, Nisha, should be married to the groom. The families discussed the matter and both agreed.”

Surabhi’s body was kept in a separate room while the new wedding took place.
