    The couple tied the knot in South Mumbai over the weekend, with their parents and just close family in attendance.

    The groom and the bride come from two of the richest and most prominent business families in India. But their wedding had none of the jazzy, over-the-top celebrations. It was a simple civil ceremony for Neville Tata and Manasi Kirloskar, held at the groom’s home in South Mumbai over the weekend, according to a source in the know.

    In attendance were Manasi and Neville’s parents — Vikram and Geetanjali, and Noel and Aloo, respectively — and immediate relations only. According to the source, Ratan Tata was also present to give his blessing to the young couple. The former Tata Sons chairman and Noel are half-brothers. The source said the Kirloskars have planned a lunch celebration on September 15 at their Bengaluru home, to mark the occasion. It is unclear if the Tata family will follow suit in Mumbai.

    According to the source, Ratan Tata was also present to give his blessing to the young couple.

    In May , ETPanache had exclusively reported about the private engagement ceremony of Manasi and Neville at the Tata family apartment. The engagement came on the back of a brief courtship and Neville flying to Bengaluru to propose to Manasi.

    The families did not respond to ETPanache’s emails and calls for a comment. Noel Tata, chairman of Trent and MD of Tata International, is media shy and maintains a low profile. His three children, Neville and daughters Leah and Maya, have followed in his footsteps. Neville reportedly worked with the food vertical at the various Trent brands at one point.

    Vikram Kirloskar is the vice-chairman of Toyota Kirloskar Motor. Manasi, who is actively involved in her family business and is ED, Kirloskar Systems Ltd, is expected to move to Mumbai. The couple, according to the source, will shift into an apartment in the same South Mumbai building as Neville’s parents.

    Such simplicity despite being from the wealthiest families of the country. Unlike the trashy Ambani family who went overboard for Akash & Isha''s weddings.
