At her mehendi ceremony of the coveted Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja wedding, the bride wore a white Indian ensemble designed by Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla and Anand Ahuja wore a white bandhgala suit.
Family and friends danced their feet and hearts away at the ceremony! The father of the bride was seen showing off his prowess in bhangra.
Friends and family set the stage on fire at the sangeet and the pictures and prep videos indicated that it was a rocking night!
The wedding of the year took place on 08th May 2018 between 11:00 am to 12:30 pm in Rockdale which is reportedly the bungalow of Sonam's aunt.
It was an intimate Sikh wedding and witnessed umpteen celebrities like Ranveer Singh, Karan Johar, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Rani Mukherjee, Swara Bhaskar, Aamir Khan and of course the families and friends of the bride and groom.
The wedding was an intimate and simple event as the actress is not a fan of quintessential big fat Indian weddings.
I think the whole idea of a marriage is more appealing to me than a wedding. I think there is too much money spent; it’s all very crass, and I would rather give that money away. I’d rather have a wedding at home than anywhere else. I think it’s important to do all the rituals, but I don’t believe in spending all that money, I find it disgusting and very wasteful, and I’m not okay with that at all" Kapoor stated earlier at a Dubai event.
The Wedding Outfit
Sonam Kapoor looked transcendent in a classic red lehenga choli by designer Anuradha Vakil. The fashion icon accessorised her bridal look with a choker, a guttapusalu necklace and a multi-stranded matha patti. Her makeup was minimal and she looked flawless!
