DIARY: Maverick MD Kolah honeymoons into the dome

The obsession with PR people among Millennium Dome cognoscenti has reached such a height that one practitioner will now feature in the dome.

The obsession with PR people among Millennium Dome cognoscenti has

reached such a height that one practitioner will now feature in the

dome.



Maverick managing director Ardi Kolah has agreed to have his upcoming

wedding documented in an exhibition in the faith zone.



The zone will feature photos of people of different religious

denominations getting married. The photographers will try to capture the

most significant moment in each of the ceremonies.



Kolah is a Zoroastrian and, as such, a rare breed. Although famous

people like Freddie Mercury and Indira Gandhi’s husband Seroze were

brought up in the faith, there are only 80,000 Zoroastrians in

existence, partly because you have to be born into the religion.



The dome organisers got in touch with Kolah’s temple in London looking

for a couple about to get married, and were given his number.



To add to the excitement, Kolah has discovered he shares his wedding

list agency with Sophie Rhys-Jones.



Bizarrely, the dome is sending Tim Page, famous for his photographs of

the Vietnam conflict, to record the wedding.



To add to the contrast, the ceremony is taking place at Nonsuch Mansion

in Cheam. ’I like the idea of an old English country house setting with

ladies in saris,’ says Kolah.
