Here’s To A New Innings!
Some might see it at a hit wicket, some might see it as a new innings. Indian #cricketer #Yuvraj Singh‘s #wedding to British model turned #Bollywood #actress #Hazel Keech, now Gurbasant Kaur, has been a star-studded affair so far.
The pre wedding ceremonies took place in Chandigargh and first wedding ceremony took place according to Sikh customs at a Gurudwara in Fatehgarh Sahib, which is 50 kms from Chandigarh, on Wednesday, 30th November. The couple later tied the knot again, this time in a typical Hindu wedding at Teso Waterfront a beach-side resort at Siolim in North Goa.
Let’s start with the coolest and cutest invitation the couple sent out for the grand affair.
The reason why their wedding #invitation card gained so much attention was because of its unique design. Though they have managed to make the card as conventional as they could. The couple decided to make it with their caricature on the covers having a tinge of cricket at the same time.
Infact, there is something much more cute about their wedding invite which is something totally unique that they have come up with. Along with #The Sweet Boutique, a high-end designer cake shop in Delhi, the duo has come up with the idea of getting the initials of their names engraved on the sweets to be distributed with the invites.
The Pre Wedding Ceremonies
Dressed in a yellow and silver embroidered outfit, Hazel looked fresh with that bridal glow at the Mehendi ceremony. She completed her look with a maang tikka, a pair of big earrings, and minimal makeup, which simply added to the bride-to-be’s natural glow.
The to-be groom, on the other hand, looked no less as he chose to wear a white kurta-pyjama, which he teamed up with a plain dark sweater.
The Mehendi ceremony was followed by the Sangeet ceremony which took place on the same day in the evening. For this function, the handsome groom, Yuvraj opted for a long bandhgala, velvet jacket teamed up with a white churidar and a pair of black mojaris.
The dazzling diva Hazel too looked as stunning as the groom, as she wore a monochrome outfit that had golden embroidery on it. She accessorised herself with only a maang tikka and a pair of earrings. This bride surely knows to make simple into elegance.
The Sangeet ceremony of the couple was attended by a lot of friends from the Indian cricket team. #Virat Kohli, #Ishant Sharma, #Ajinkya Rahane, #Ravindra Jadeja, #Anil Kumble and Bollywood actor #Ayushman Khurana were to name a few.
Punjabi singer #Ranjit Bawa was the entertainment for the night while Virat let loose and let out some killer dances moves.
