TV stars Gautam Rode and Pankhuri Awasthy got married on Monday in true Bollywood-meets-a-fairy-tale style. Sweethearts, who kept their romance under wraps for a long time and announced their engagement only last October, looked every bit a couple made for each other. Pictures and videos from their wedding and the pre-wedding functions are all over the internet, thanks to their fans.
According to a report in TimesNow, the wedding took place in Tijara Fort Palace, Alwar, Rajasthan. However, for the last two days, functions related to the wedding have left fans asking for more. This is the third high-profile wedding from the television world, after those of Aashka Goradia and comedy queen Bharti Singh. The two met as co-stars while shooting for TV serial Suryaputra Karn and hit off instantly.
The first pictures and videos available from their wedding show Gautam sporting a cream-coloured and embroidered silk churidar kurta and teaming it up with a pagdi (turban) and what looks like beaded sehra (another wedding adornment worn by men in north India). A video shows Gautam entering the wedding venue as part of the baraat (wedding party members from the groom’s side). As others are dancing, Gautam joins in. How cute is that!
In another video, we can see Gautam sitting alongwith his ‘partner for life’ Pankhuri. She is dressed in a rich and ornate, heavily embroidered pink (may be red, hard to figure out) ghagra choli (Indian long skirt and blouse). She has teamed it up with heavy embroidery. In another video, we see them walking down a fleet of stairs.
In another picture, Gautam is seen going through the wedding ritual.
Of course, this is just the icing on the cake. There’s tons more. Looks like the lovely couple decided to go through a whole host of ceremonies to make their wedding special. So, we have pictures from the haldi, mehendi ceremonies, cocktail and other functions.
Pankhuri is in love with pink. Pictures of a sunny mehendi ceremony has her wearing a bright pink lightly embroidered single-piece ankle-length dress with a dupatta (long stole) of the same fabric to go along. Gautam wears a striking blue kurta pyjama (a Pathani kurta pyjama, perhaps) with fancy jootis (shoes) to go along.

For the evening cocktail event, Pankhuri again opts a shoulder-less gown, which is also in pink, only this time, it is in baby pink. She teams it up with sparkling necklace and ear rings. With minimal make up, she looks a vision. But wait there’s more. It seems like they decided to exchange rings again. Gautam is in a cream churidar kurta with a light rose-printed Nehru jacket while Pankhuri again channels a cream-pink lehenga choli with a net dupatta.
There are few more pictures from their haldi ceremony too. Both sport bright yellow-coloured clothes. Pankhuri opts for flowers as her choice of jewellery this time.
