B-Town stars Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal exchanged wedding vows in a dreamy destination wedding in Rajasthan on December, 9. Here are a few inside details of the secret yet big fat wedding of the lovebirds.
The official announcement comes after weeks of intense coverage — practically stalking — by the Indian media. Following weeks of secrecy and NDAs, the couple finally decided to announce the news on their own terms. The wedding was held at the Six Senses Fort hotel in Jaipur.
The duo bonded in sacred union in the presence of family members and close friends. From the cost of the bride and groom’s wedding rings to details about the mandap (a temple porch), pheras, and the bride’s mangalsutra, we know it all.
Kaif and Kaushal opted for Tiffany for their wedding rings. While Kaif could be seen donning a rectangular blue platinum ring that featured a double row of round diamonds from Tiffany Soleste worth $9,800, Kaushal adorned a Tiffany Classic worth $1,700.
Wedding ensembles and jewelry
The bride and the groom were adorned in Sabyasachi outfits and jewelry on their special day. While Kaif donned a bright red saree, Kaushal looked dashing in an ivory sherwani. They seem to have taken a cue from Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh who also both wore Sabyasachi at their wedding.
Following traditional Hindu rituals
The newlywed tied the knot as per traditional Hindu rituals. Indian media outlets report that the couple took their 7 pheras on the afternoon of December 9. Kaushal and Kaif tied the knot in a wedding mandap which has been arranged in such a way that it faced a temple.
Kaif arrived at the mandap seated on a beautiful doli adorned with flowers, whereas groom Kaushal came in a vintage car after his sehra bandi. Sources revealed that the mandap was amidst a sheesh mahal in the fort, and decorated in colors of yellow, orange, and pink.
Ahead of their big day on December 9, the lovebirds grooved to the beats of some smashing numbers on their Sangeet (a celebration held before a Hindu wedding ceremony for the bride-to-be and her female friends and relatives). They danced their hearts out.
The newlyweds shelled a whopping 4.5 lakhs on their Sangeet cake. It was made by a well-known Delhi-based patissier. The dreamy five-tier cake was replete with berries.
No mobile phones were allowed at their wedding ceremonies. But the duo had sold the broadcast rights for their wedding to Amazon for INR 800 million. However, that has not been confirmed by them or their representatives.
