Are you wondering where all of Bollywood has been since the past few days? At the Sonam Kapoor-Anand Ahuja wedding festivities, of course! Unless you’re living under a rock, you know that #SonamKiShaadi has been the grandest Bollywood get-together ever, probably even grander than most award functions. If you’ve indulged in some stalking like we did, you will know the smallest deets of the wedding. If you haven’t, read on…
The fashionista tied the knot with her long term boyfriend yesterday and the wedding was nothing less than a fairytale. Here’s everything that happened at the big fat Punjabi wedding!
The ceremonies kicked off on 7th May—Rhea Kapoor posted this picture of the bride-to-be getting her menehdi done, looking happy as ever! The pre-mehendi ceremony was a close-knit affair and the party was scheduled for the next day.
The party dress-code was ‘Indian Festive Shades of White’, and the guest list turned up in some of the most gorgeous outfits we’ve ever seen! Some of our favourites were Shilpa Shetty in Sukriti and Akriti, Janhvi Kapoor in Manish Malhotra (of course), and Katrina Kaif, also in Manish Malhotra. The décor was gorgeous too—white roses, candles, music—all of them made for a stunning backdrop for a perfect, fairytale wedding.
Sonam Kapoor was majestic in a gorgeous gold-white Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla chikankari lehenga for this ceremony but what stole the show were her flawless makeup and the floral braid ‘do. All you brides-to-be, are you taking notes?
Because we were so invested in the wedding, couldn’t contain our excitement to see Sonam in her bridal lehenga. And then, Anaita Shroff Adajania posted this picture which literally made our hearts stop. Sonam donned a quintessential red lehenga by Anuradha Vakil while Anand chose a custom Raghavendra Rathore achkan.
Guests included the Pataudis, Karan Johar, Swara Bhaskar, Jacqueline Fernandez and an endless list of the crème de la crème of Bollywood.
They look so happy together, we’re going to cry!
The festivities concluded with a grand reception-cum-sangeet held at the Leela in Mumbai, and oh what an ending it was! Sonam Kapoor was dressed in an Anamika Khanna lehenga while Anand Ahuja Kept it edgy with a bandhgala paired with sneakers.
The reception was a huge party with every A-list celebrity shaking a leg to Sukhbir, Mika and Badshah’s tunes, Anil Kapoor’s childlike antics, Karan Johar’s performance, Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor grooving and last but not the least, Salman Khan and SRK singing to the bride and the groom—it was a side of Bollywood we’ve never seen before!
There was dancing…a lot of dancing!
All in all, we loved every bit of this Kapoor-Ahuja wedding and wish we were there to witness it in person. Here’s wishing the newly-weds a lifetime of happiness and we hope every day in their lives is as phenomenal as this wedding (see what we did there?)!
