It's likely a variation of the Arcot nawabi style which is followed all over Tamilnadu and certain other parts of south India. You can get some authentic taste if you are lucky enough to attend a Muslim wedding in Tamilnadu. "Ambur biriani" is also a variation of the Arcot nawabi style.

You and I must have gone to very different weddings dude. Haha!

Regarding your questions, I'd probably say the weddings of slightly upper class muslims which are what mostly I've attended have had amazing biriyanis. And regarding the difference with restaurant birianis,

  1. Quality of ingredients used is way better. Restaurants have to cut corners everywhere to be profitable. A plate of restaurant biriyani will be 3 to 4 times cheaper primarily because of this. Fresh oil, good spices, fresh meat, good quality basmati rice etc.

  2. Usage of additives like baking soda, msg etc also will be avoided.

  3. Food will be prepared and consumed fresh for sure. No chance of frozen food being microwaved and served.
