Indian Celebrity Weddings 2012

By  | 

As far as Indian celebrity nuptials are concerned, 2012 saw two big fat Bollywood weddings. Actors Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia D’Souza tied the knot on February 3rd  2012 at the Grand Hyatt Mumbai, while actor Esha Deol and businessman Bharat Takhtani got hitched on June 29th 2012 at the ISKCON temple in Mumbai.

Riteish and Genelia got married in a Maharashtrian wedding ceremony which we have discussed here. This was followed by a Church wedding in suburban Bandra, Mumbai on February 4th. For the Marathi wedding, the bride chose the traditional nine yard sari in red and gold along with a nose ring and traditional string of pearls on the forehead (Mundawali).  Her ensemble also included other traditional jewelry items. The groom was in a white shervani, red turban and other Maharashtrian embellishments.  For the church wedding, Genelia chose a lovely full length gown while Riteish opted for the classic black suit. There was another elaborate reception where bigshots of Hollywood arrived in large numbers to offer their wishes to the newlyweds.

Esha and Bharat’s wedding ceremony was a private affair; the main ceremony was typical south Indian style event. The bride chose the traditional Kanjeevaram sari for this day and the groom was dressed in a white shervani with a turban which certainly imparted a royal look!  For the grand reception ceremony, Esha chose a beautiful pink Lehenga and corset blouse bedecked in Swarovski crystals. Bharat opted for an elegant Black Tuxedo designed by Simone Khambatta. There was a Sangeet ceremony too prior to these events.

Now, all eyes are set on the much discussed wedding of Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan (or Saifeena as they are popularly known). We are sure that this wedding will also be a stylish and opulent event as the other two celebrations! Indiaweddings wishes these couples the very best in their married lives!
