The Catholic style wedding, which took place in the morning around 11, had Asin dressed in a white gown and Rahul, 39, sporting a black suit and bow tie.

It was a beautiful wedding. Everyone looked amazing. It was Asin’s idea to have a Catholic wedding. We all are very happy,” said a close relative of Rahul.

“Everything went great at the wedding. We played 2-3 songs. Asin looked beautiful in her white gown. We had a rehearsal yesterday,” said a band member.

The evening ceremony, which included jai mala and pheras, atypical of North Indian wedding, was also attended by Akshay Kumar. The groom arrived in an open car for the baarat. Both the functions were kept private with tight security arranged at the hotel entrance.

Asin was pretty in a Sabyasachi lehenga for the evening wedding ceremony.

Asin’s fan page had shared pictures of the hotel earlier in the day.

Asin also posted photos of her wedding card on Instagram.

A get-together is expected to take place tomorrow at Rahul’s farmhouse. The couple will also hold a reception in Mumbai later.

It was revealed in August last year that the duo was seeing each other and was set to marry. Asin, known to be a private person, remained mostly silent on her love life.

Akshay, Asin’s co-star in “Housefull 2” and “Khiladi 786”, had played the cupid by introducing the couple. (Akshay Kumar gets the first card of Asin’s wedding reception)

Asin, who made her Bollywood debut opposite superstar Aamir Khan in “Ghajini”, was last seen in 2015 comedy “All Is Well”. She has wrapped up all her Bollywood assignments and has taken a sabbatical from acting. Yes, I introduced Asin to Rahul Sharma: Akshay Kumar on playing matchmaker

    Did MK Narayanan and Ra-Ka-Paksha's son attend the marriage? It is said that both have arranged their honeymoon in Colombo.

      Asin as a celebrity maintained a lot of dignity in her personal and professional life. As an actress, she was as talented as her contemporaries but did not indulge in self promotion and PR like most of them.

          Who told you that anyone converted here? Both are just respecting each others beliefs and tradition. Isnt that wonderful? Get over from this hating mentality and you will find the beauty in it.

            And please dont insult mine by comparing it with yours. If you want to dig out dirt from the past, every religion has its share. Its better to live in the present. Everyone has moved on and I would suggest you too do so. What good are you doing for humanity right now. Spreading hatred makes you only a slight better that those m murderers.

              No, my religion doest not ask anyone to kill anyone if they work on a Sabbath. Instead it asks to love even your enemies. The mention of strict punishment for working on sabbath day does not mean it is endorsing it but it tells that what was the state of affairs and belief at that period and the purpose of Jesus was to discard such beliefs and teach love. Dont spread hatred by quoting that you dont know or understand.

                Well then when nobody knows or rather unsure why accuse anyone of it? Moreover do you think a business tycoon like Rahul will convert? Did Asin convert? Did she had to get a special permission to be in the temple because she is a woman? I am sure you didnt like it and would like to defend that women do not face discrimination in majority temples across India. But I am giving an example how generalizing or painting people and communities with a broad brush with hateful lenses is wrong.

                  Always interesting how when you marry a Hindu, no one will even ask you to convert. No one will even demand you follow their ceremony. You get every right to practice however you like. But when you marry someone from the Abrahamic religion, suddenly conversion is a must, wedding must be by their practices etc. Speaks volumes about tolerance.

                        lol, beggar, you tell me that I dont know my religion. Jesus said a person must not have material wealth. Why are you sitting here on your computer? Sell it. PS, doesnt your religion say that you should kill people who work on the day of Sabbath? How many have you killed?

                                    why are you jealous? conversion is NOT required if both agree and are educated. the uneducated may fall victims. maybe a new career for you??

                                        Celebrities and their nautanki, first wear complete white dress and in evening wear colorful dress what a contradict. Can't they have one ritual still it would be considered as marriage. Good luck hope it works for you.
