In a unique union of politics and bureaucracy, Aruvikkara MLA K S Sabarinathan married Thiruvananthapuram Sub-Collector Divya S Iyer on Friday. The wedding was held at the Kumarakovil Temple near Thuckalay on the Tamil Nadu border.
The wedding guests included former Chief Minister Oommen Chandy, Opposition Leader Ramesh Chennithala, Congress leaders V D Satheeshan, Anto Antony, K C Joseph and only the close family and friends of the couple.
The couple has arranged a double reception - one at the Girideepam Convention Centre, Nalanchira, on Friday evening and the second one at the V K Auditorium at Aryanad on June 2, Sunday.
Sabarinathan, son of late veteran Congress leader G Karthikeyan, forayed into politics in 2015 by winning the by-election held at Aruvikkara which fell vacant after the sudden demise of his father. He later retained his seat in the 2016 Assembly polls.
Divya secured the 48th rank in the All-India Civil Services Examination in 2013. Prior to entering the world of bureaucracy, she had completed MBBS from the Christian Medical College, Vellore.
She has also won several accolades in a variety of art forms, including Kathakali, classical music, mono act and Odissi dance.
