After a lavish Marathi-style wedding on Friday, actors Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia D'Souza got married at a church in suburban Bandra on Saturday.

The Bollywood couple had sealed their 8-year-long relationship with a Maharashtrian-style wedding at Grand Hyatt hotel on Friday.

Riteish, son of former Mahrashtra chief minister Vilasrao Deshmukh, is from a Maharashtrian family, while Genelia was born into a Mangalorean Catholic family, which is why, the wedding was also solemnised in a Christian way at a church.

Clad in a full-length white gown, Genelia looked her best, while Riteish was seen in a black suit. In a traditional Christian way, the couple, said 'I do' in front of the father.

Riteish (32) and Genelia (24) had been seeing each other since their Bollywood debut Tujhe Meri Kasam in 2003.

While Friday's wedding ceremony was attended by Bollywood bigwigs, Saturday's was a completely private affair, where only close friends and family members were present.

Several bigwigs like Shahrukh Khan, his wife Gauri, Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn, Kajol, Abhishek Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan, Suniel Shetty, Ashutosh Gowariker, Karan Johar, Shahid Kapoor, Asin, Sajid Khan, Sajid Nadiadwala, Sharad Pawar, Praful Patel, Raj Thackeray and others had attended Friday's ceremony.

The couple will be hosting a reception at Grand Hyatt Hotel tonight, where several Bollywood celebrities, politicians and other eminent personalities would be present.
