From the closely guarded wedding of Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli to the spiritual wedding of Kavita Kaushik and Ronnit Biswas, take a look at the top 10 celebrity weddings of 2017.
Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma
Actor Anushka Sharma tied the knot with cricketer Virat Kohli in Tuscany, Italy, on December 11. It wasn’t just a lavish wedding, but one of the best kept secrets, too — though, come to think of it, hmmm... the bride and bridegroom flying out of India (separately) on the same night did give us a clue. The private affair only had a few guests in attendance and the couple celebrated all events away from the media limelight. Virushka will host a reception in Mumbai on December 26.
Sagarika Ghatge and Zaheer Khan
In another actor-cricketer union, Chak De India actor Sagarika Ghatge and pacer Zaheer Khan sealed the deal on November 23. The couple had a court marriage, followed by a star-studded reception on November 27. It was attended by the who’s who from the world of cricket and Bollywood.
Kavita Kaushik and Ronnit Biswas
Better known by her screen name, Chandramukhi Chautala, television actor Kavita Kaushik had a simple yet beautiful wedding with her boyfriend Ronnit Biswas at a Shiv-Parvathi temple, in Kedarnath, on January 27. The couple announced and shared the good news with their fans on social media and eventually shared more details. They had a haldi and Mehendi ceremony in Mumbai before heading for the hills.
Naga Chaitanya and Samantha Prabhu
Actors Naga Chaitanya and Samantha Prabhu had an elaborate dream wedding in Goa on October 6. The couple had a Hindu ceremony and a church wedding. Photos of their marriage took the Internet by storm — it was, perhaps, the biggest wedding in Tollywood, as the Telugu film industry is nicknamed. After the wedding, the couple hosted a grand reception for all their friends in the Tamil and Telugu film industries.
Neil Nitin Mukesh and Rukmini Sahay
Actor Neil Nitin Mukesh had an arranged marriage with Rukmini Sahay. The three-day destination wedding, which started from February 9 in Udaipur, was truly a royal affair. The couple later hosted a grand reception for their friends in Mumbai, which was attended by the likes of Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha, among others.
Bharti Singh and Harsh Limbachiyaa
Actor-comedian Bharti Singh and her writer boyfriend Harsh Limbachiyaa had a fun-filled wedding in Goa on December 3. The dream setting with beaches in the backdrop added to the beauty of the wedding, which was attended by television actors such as Mohit Sehgal, Sanaya Irani, Krushna Abhishek, Asha Negi and Rithvik Dhanjani.
Aashka Goradia and Brent Goble
Actor Aashka Goradia’s wedding with her American boyfriend Brent Goble resembled a fairytale. The two had a Christian wedding on December 2, followed by a Hindu ceremony on December 3 in Aashka’s hometown Ahmedabad. The couple also had a small Mehendi ceremony in Mumbai in July.
Vatsal Sheth and Ishita Dutta
Actors Vatsal Sheth and Ishita Dutta surprised everyone by announcing their wedding on social media on November 29. The couple had kept the details of their relationship under wraps until the wedding took place. It was attended only by the families of the bride and bridegroom. The ceremony took place at the ISKCON temple in Juhu, Mumbai.
Aftab Shivdasani and Nin Dusanj
Actor Aftab Shivdasani tied the knot with Nin Dusanj in Sri Lanka on September 1. The couple had registered their marriage in 2014, but formally tied the knot in a traditional ceremony only this year. The wedding was attended by close friends and family.
