Yuvraj Singh is all set to tie the knot with Hazel Keech this December. The creative designs of the couples’ wedding cards had earlier flooded the internet. Hazel and Yuvraj have been together for over a year. In April 2016, the couple got engaged in a low-key, private ceremony and they broke the news to the world on social media, sharing a beautiful picture of them together.
Actress-model Hazel Keech is a British national and her mother is a Mauritian Hindu by origin. Yuvraj’s family is based in Chandigarh and Delhi. Therefore, the two have decided to have multiple venues for the wedding.
The traditional, gurdwara wedding will take place in Chandigarh on November 30 which will be followed by another wedding as per Hindu rituals in Goa on December 2. The couple’s closest friends from Mumbai are expected to attend this. The sangeet and reception will be held in Delhi on December 5 and 7. While the venue for the sangeet is a farmhouse near Chattarpur, the reception will be at a city hotel.
A special term has been coined while conceptualising the invites; YHPL- Yuvraj and Hazel Premiere League.
The couple was closely involved with designers Sandy and Kapil Khurana who are conceptualizing the invites. In a conversation with TOI, Sandy said, “They wanted to do something different and fun, so the reception invite features both of them and there will be a lot of cartoons and illustrations. The theme is cricket humour and we even coined a special term, YHPL – Yuvraj and Hazel Premiere League!”
Kapil adds that they also created a postal stamp with caricatures of Hazel and Yuvraj. He says, “We are going with the same concept for the Goa wedding invites also. But since the Chandigarh wedding will be traditional, the card is white with gold embossing.”
Yuvraj Singh has recently been in great form. Although he has been in out of contention for the Indian national team, the Punjab captain has already scored three centuries in the Ranji trophy, including one double hundred. One would be forgiven for wondering whether the upcoming big day has any role to play in this recent spike in form.
