当前由于疫情限制,印度新人不能举行传统的盛大婚礼。于是一对新人找到了不受疫情限制的场所——元宇宙,并决定在元宇宙中举办一场霍格沃茨主题的婚礼派对,新娘已过世的父亲也会“参加”这场虚拟派对并送上祝福。

As Covid-19 forces families across India to downsize or cancel their traditionally large-scale weddings, one couple has found a venue unaffected by restrictions: the metaverse.

新冠疫情迫使印度各地的新人简化或取消传统的盛大婚礼,然而一对印度夫妇却找到了一个不受防疫限制措施影响的场所——元宇宙。

Dinesh Sivakumar Padmavathi and Janaganandhini Ramaswamy from Tamil Nadu, where wedding gatherings are currently limited to 100 people, have invited 2,000 people to their virtual reception next month. And as self-professed "Potterheads," or fans of Harry Potter, the pair have opted for a Hogwarts-themed party that guests can attend via their phones, tablets or laptops.

来自泰米尔纳德邦的帕德玛瓦帝和拉姆丝瓦米邀请2000人下个月参加他们的虚拟婚礼派对。在泰米尔纳德邦,目前婚礼聚会人数不得超过100人。这对自称是哈利波特粉丝的新人将选择举办一个霍格沃茨主题婚礼派对,宾客们可以通过手机、平板电脑或笔记本电脑来参加。

"Because of the pandemic, a physical, real kind of reception is not possible with the huge number of people attending," said Padmavathi, "So, we decided: let's make it in the metaverse."

帕德玛瓦帝表示:“疫情之下,我们不可能举办一个有许多人参加的真正的线下婚礼派对。因此我们决定在元宇宙中举办。”

Metaverse is a term used to describe virtual 3D environments in which users can gather and interact. The groom, a 24-year-old blockchain and cryptocurrency enthusiast, worked with start-up platform TardiVerse to create a castle-like digital space inspired by Hogwarts.

元宇宙指的是用户可以聚集和互动的3D虚拟环境。24岁的新郎是区块链和加密电子货币爱好者,他和初创平台TardiVerse合作打造了一个灵感源自霍格沃茨的城堡般的数字空间。

The legal wedding ceremony will still take place physically in front of close friends and relatives in Ramaswamy's village in Tamil Nadu's Krishnagiri district. But afterwards, the couple will log on to join their reception, which is costing 150,000 Indian rupees to design, develop and host. The one-hour event will see the newlyweds virtually address their guests, who will be able to explore the castle and customize their avatars' appearance and outfit.

合法的线下婚礼仍然会在泰米尔纳德邦克里斯赫纳吉里市拉马斯瓦米村,在亲朋好友的见证下举行。但是接下来,这对新人将会登陆元宇宙举行婚礼派对,设计、开发和举办这场派对共耗资15万印度卢比(约合人民币1.3万元)。在这个长达一小时的婚礼派对中,这对新人将会以虚拟的形式来向宾客致辞,宾客们将能到城堡游览,并定制自己的头像和服饰。

As well as being able to invite guests who couldn't otherwise attend, the couple said the digital celebration has another unique advantage: they can involve Ramaswamy's late father in the proceedings.

这对新人表示,这场数字婚礼派对不仅可以邀请那些原本无法出席的宾客,还有一个独特的优势:他们可以让拉姆丝瓦米过世的父亲参加婚礼派对。

"My father-in-law passed away last April," Padmavathi said. "So, I'm creating a 3D avatar that looks similar to (him), and he will bless me and my fiancée. That's something we can only do in the metaverse."

帕德玛瓦帝说:“我的岳父去年四月去世了。所以我定制了一个与岳父相似的3D角色,他会祝福我和我的未婚妻。这是只有在元宇宙中才能实现的。”

There have been reports of other metaverse wedding events, including a US couple that held a physical ceremony alongside a digital one on the virtual platform, Virbela. But while Indian law requires witnesses to be present at marriage ceremonies, Padmavathi believes that his reception in the metaverse will be the first ever of its kind to be held in the country.

此前也报道过其他元宇宙婚礼,其中有一对美国新人既举办了线下婚礼又在虚拟平台Virbela上举办了数字婚礼。尽管印度法律规定婚礼上必须有见证人,但是帕德玛瓦帝认为自己的元宇宙婚礼将是印度首例。

Having convinced his fiancée, an IT worker, of the idea, Padmavathi also has his parents' approval for the unconventional event, he said.

帕德玛瓦帝说,举办这场非传统婚礼派对之前,他说服了身为IT工作者的未婚妻,还征得了父母的许可。

"From childhood, I've been working with robotics ... and for the last year I've been working in blockchain and mining Ethereum," he said, adding: "So my family knows that I'm into tech."

他说:“从小时候起我就一直和机器人打交道……去年我也一直在研究区块链,并在以太坊‘挖矿’。所以我的家人知道我对技术很感兴趣。”
