Bollywood’s IT couple Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal took the internet by storm after they officially announced their wedding in December 2021. After keeping their relationship under wraps, the couple surprised the fans with their oh-so-dreamy wedding pictures. A sweet union started off at Zoya Akhtar’s party and it ended up transpiring at the grand Six Senses Fort Barwara in Rajasthan.
The couple chose Rajasthan to start the beginning of their journey. Till the very last minute, VicKat or their family members did not reveal anything about the wedding. They decided to tie the knot at the 700-year-old Fort Resort in Sawai Madhopur. The three-day extravaganza affair was all about love. The couple sent the wedding invitation to 120 guests including close friends and family members. They opted for shades of pastel for the invite as it featured floral borders with Vicky and Katrina’s names embossed in gold. Since the love birds wanted to keep the celebration away from the public eye, the wedding planners put up special welcome hampers for the guests in their rooms along with the dos and don’ts note at the wedding.
The wedding festivities kicked off in style with the Mehendi ceremony. It sets the wedding mood right in every sense. The couple was seen living their lives to the fullest. Not only did they dance with the family members but they performed for each other too. Katrina looked like a ray of sunshine in her outfit. She wore a multi-colored Sabysaschi lehenga with a patchwork blouse and an embroidered tulle dupatta. She went all out with the accessories too. She completed her look with Navaratan-inspired jewelry and subtle makeup. Her natural glow was more than enough to make her look breathtakingly beautiful. With henna also, Katrina left no stone unturned to get it perfect. She kept it traditional and desi with Vicky’s name on it. On the other hand, Punjabi Munda Vicky wore a silk kurta with an embroidered raw silk bandhgala jacket. All in all, Vicky and Katrina let their inner filmy keeda out and set the dance floor on fire with their moves. Speaking of the decor, the fort looked all things beautiful as it was decked up with lots of lights and yellow gendha flowers.
All about Haldi
Vicky and Katrina’s Haldi ceremony was a visual treat. For this, they opted for pastel decor as the venue was adorned with white and baby pink flowers.
