The big fat Indian cricket wedding of the year is under way, and fans have been bombarded with gorgeous photos of ace cricketer Yuvraj Singh and his partner Hazel Keech, starting with the mehendi ceremony on November 29. The wedding, which is spread over several days, several destinations and even multiple wedding ceremonies, has taken the Internet by storm.
The dreamy couple were really quiet about their wedding details until we spotted the left-handed batsman carrying an invite for Prime Minister Narendra Modi and suddenly all hell broke loose. We now know that the Keech-Singh wedding comprises two ceremonies – a Sikh wedding at Baba Ram Singh Ganduan Wale’s dera in Duffera on November 30 and a Hindu ceremony in Goa on December 2. A reception has also been planned in the Capital for December 7.
All these ceremonies means a bunch of outfits for both the bride and groom that we can ogle over. Take a look!
One of the first photos to make the rounds was of the couple at the mehendi function and as per reports, her intricate mehendi took three hours to complete. Keech glowed in a yellow outfit with intricate silver-thread work on the bustier. She paired it with a Mashrabiya mathapatti by Astha Jagwani. Meanwhile, Singh looked sharp in a blue white bandhgala kurta and churidar, which he paired with a blue pullover.
But what got our attention is the ring ceremony where the couple was seen hand-in-hand welcoming guests at the same hotel in Chandigarh where the Indian cricket team was staying for the Test against England in Mohali. Even though the cricketer looked dapper in a black velvet achkan paired with white churidar and jootis, we think the Bodyguard actress went a little overboard with her get-up. The white lehenga with a golden border and a jacket with heavy gold embroidery was a complete look in itself but pairing it with the Polki mathapatti disturbed the entire outfit. However, her make-up was spot on and the peacock chandbalis looked good.
For their big day, Singh chose an outfit from master couturier JJ Valaya and according to reports Keech picked the same designer. Both opted for marsala shades, perfect for an Indian wedding. We love how the bride kept her make-up minimum with just a touch of dewy sheen on her face and perfect black smokey eyes while the groom exuded class, complete with a turban. If you ask us, she actually looked like royalty and he like a king!
According to reports, for their upcoming ceremony in Goa, Keech will be wearing a red-and-gold Banarasi sari with a zardozi kamarbandh and an indigo-coloured jumpsuit zardozi belt and collar for the reception. We still have no news about Singh’s couture.
