One of the most highly anticipated weddings of the year, our favourite Bollywood couple Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor have finally tied the knot. After eager fans spent their entire day refreshing various Bollywood pap accounts for a glance, the gorgeous bride shared the pictures from her dreamy nuptials on Instagram. “Today, surrounded by our family and friends, at home… in our favourite spot - the balcony we’ve spent the last 5 years of our relationship - we got married,” said the Gangubai Kathiawadi star, leaving all of us with tears of joy.
Twinning in ivory, the bride and groom both opted to wear Sabyasachi on their special day. For the wedding ceremony, Alia wore a hand-dyed ivory organza sariwhich was embroidered with fine tilla work. She completed her look with an embroidered handwoven tissue veil and paired it with some beautiful uncut diamond and hand-strung pearl jewellery by Sabyasachi. Ranbir also wore an embroidered silk sherwani by Sabyasachi which had uncut diamond buttons, paired with an organza safa and shawl with intricate zari maori embroidery. Kapoor completed the look with a royal kilangi made out of uncut diamonds, emeralds, and pearls along with a multi-strand pearl necklace.
The wedding took place in Kapoor’s Pali Hill residence, Vastu in the presence of their closest friends and family. After the wedding rituals were finally over, the couple came down to thank the paparazzi, who had been standing outside Vastu for many hours and posed for a few pictures. As the newlyweds were getting ready to leave, Ranbir scooped his beautiful bride in his arms and walked back to the apartment, offering the perfect photo-op!
The couple met on the sets of Brahmāstra five years ago, which is now set to release its ‘Part One’ on September 9, 2022. The couple’s best friend and the director of the film, Ayan Mukerji, shared a bit of their latest film’s song to celebrate Alia and Ranbir’s wedding. In fact, a lot of people from the industry including Ayan Mukherji, shared pictures from the wedding congratulating the couple.
So that’s that. The wedding is over. The pictures are here. Time to find something else to obsess over.
