    It will not be much different at first from when two large stars get close to one another. They will form an orbit around their barycenter (the point between the two stars which is the middle distance relative to their mass). Then, the larger of the two will ultimately begin feeding on the other.

    If you decide to search more about this topic, you are asking about binary black hole systems. Below is an article about the first one of these systems which we found.

    black hole is a region of space from which nothing, including light, can escape. It is the result of the deformation of spacetime caused by a very compact mass. Around a black hole there is an undetectable surface which marks the point of no return, called an event horizon. It is called "black" because it absorbs all the light that comes towards it, reflecting nothing, just like a perfect black body in thermodynamics.

    Except, poonam, your response had nothing to do with the question asked in the OP.
