Bollywood Celebrity Aftab Shivdasani Celebrates His Wedding After Three Years, And Boy, Was It Worth The Wait!

It’s never too late for celebration. Aftab Shivdasani and Nin Dusanj, who have actually been a married couple since June 2014, recently celebrated their marriage with full grandeur, three years late.

Nin Dusanj, Kabir Bedi’s sister-in-law, is a London-based Punjabi working in Hong Kong, the same city where her marriage was registered. This August, Aftab and Nin decided to revisit the elaborate wedding celebrations that they had skipped earlier, and hosted their destination wedding in Sri Lanka at Anantara Peace Haven, Tangalle. Close friends and family attended the two-day wedding celebrations, which began with Mehendi and a beach party.

For the wedding ceremony on the following day, a priest was flown in from Mumbai. The couple entered in a grand procession amid Kandyan dancers. Aftab, dressed in a cream colored sherwani designed by Troy Costa, made a royal entrance on an elephant, while Nin arrived with grace and femininity upon a doli. She looked absolutely stunning in her ivory lehenga covered with gold embroidery, a Yoshita Couture creation.  After taking the pheras, the couple took a Buddhist’s blessing from the local Sri Lankan monks.

Pakistani-Canadian YouTuber Zaid Ali Ties The Knot & This Time It’s Not A Prank!

Pakistani – Canadian YouTuber and comedian Zaid Ali got married (this time for real) on 20th August 2017.

A comedian at heart, Zaid announced he was engaged earlier this year, only to reveal later that it was an April Fool’s Day prank.

While that joke was just about having some fun, when Zaid spoke of his wedding this time around, no one was able to believe him completely. His followers did not take him seriously when he tweeted about his upcoming Nikkah and pre-wedding jitters until he posted pictures of his wedding with his wife.

Although only a few pictures are out so far, they are enough to convince us that not only was Zaid serious this time, but also extremely fortunate to have found such a beautiful soulmate. We wish the stunning couple a happy married life.

A Wedding Like No Other – Sana & Adel’s Cruise Wedding Completely Awed Us In ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’ Style!

Dubai, a city known for setting world records, set yet another record when Adel Sajan, heir to Dubai based Danube Group, and Sana Khan, former beauty queen, artist and writer, were united in the world’s first ever fully chartered cruise wedding. One of the top 5 most expensive weddings, the affair amounted to AED 30 million. Clearly, the only thing the couple couldn’t afford was overlooking any detail. More than 2 tons of flowers from various continents, 75 of India’s best chefs, a team of 42 beauticians and hair specialists to give the guests a makeover as per each theme, and 6 people to tie turbans for the baraat ceremony were all specially flown in to make the wedding utterly perfect.

On April 6th, the chartered luxury cruise liner left Barcelona with over a 1,000 guests, including celebrities like Gauhar Khan, Hussain Kuwajerwala, Malaika Arora Khan, Gurmeet Choudhary and wife Debina, Rohit Roy and wife Manasi, Shilpa and Shamita Shetty, Dia Mirza, the rapper Badshah, the Meet Bros, and Vishal-Shekhar.

The 4-day wedding extravaganza throughout the Mediterranean began with a retro welcome dinner, followed by high tea. The guests danced the following night away to some hip-shaking songs played by Badshah and music duo Vishal & Shekhar for the Sangeet.

On April 8th, the Italian liner docked at Cannes for the big fat desi wedding ceremony. A special water rocket show was organized for the baraat as the groom and his family and friends journeyed around the outer decks of the liner to the bride.

The Gala night aka the grand white ballroom-themed reception, saw a performance by synchronized swimmers. What’s more, Sana glowed—yes, we mean literally glowed—in a white Neeta Lulla gown.
