In fact, Bollywood was quite buzzing on the wedding front with Yami Gautam, Varun Dhawan, Dia Mirza, Katrina Kaif, Vicky Kaushal, Aditya Seal, and many more getting married.
Here are 9 dreamy weddings that made 2021 all the more beautiful for us...
Varun Dhawan and Natasha Dalal
Varun Dhawan took the plunge with long-time girlfriend Natasha Dalal in an intimate ceremony on January 24. The traditional Hindu wedding ceremony took place at The Mansion House Resort in Alibaug with family and the closest of friends in presence. The celebration pictures were kept under wraps until all nuptials were completed, the happy couple later made the announcement on social media and the wedding looked every bit dreamy.
Dia Mirza and Vaibhav Rekhi
Actress Dia Mirza married businessman Vaibhav Rekhi in Mumbai on February 15 and this wedding was quite talked about because it was all things modern. Not only did Dia opt for a ceremony organized in a sustainable manner. The couple also had a Vedic ceremony conducted by a woman priest, Dia even chose to do away with the kanyadaan and bidaai rituals. So, cool right?
Yami Gautam and Aditya Dhar
Yami Gautam's wedding to director Aditya Dhar in Himachal Pradesh was not just serene, but also the most elegant one. In fact, the simplicity of Yami's wedding totally left me in admiration, and I still remember how the announcement on social media took everyone by surprise. The couple got married on June 4 in an extremely private ceremony with just their immediate families present.
Rhea Kapoor and Karan Boolani
Anil Kapoor's daughter Rhea Kapoor married long-time beau Karan Boolani on August 14 at her residence in Mumbai. Even though this was the most stylish wedding of 2021, the Kapoor's kept the celebrations intimate with just close family members and friends present.
Rajkummar Rao and Patralekhaa
After being in a relationship for almost 11 years, Rajkummar Rao and Patralekhaa finally said 'I do' to one another in a traditional ceremony. The couple got married in Chandigarh on November 15 and their wedding looked nothing short of a royal affair. In fact, Patralekhaa's wedding veil that had a Bengali chant inscribed on it left many in awe. And I must say, seeing them brimming with happiness in the wedding pictures made me smile too.
Shraddha Arya and Rahul Nagal
Actress Shraddha Arya married businessman Rahul Nagal in Delhi on November 16. And apart from the ceremony pictures, it was Shraddha's 'bride-chilla' avatar that the netizens loved. I must say, the actress had a wonderful wedding.
Aditya Seal and Anushka Ranjan
Another oh-so-romantic Shaadi was that of actor Aditya Seal with Anushka Ranjan. The lovebirds took the plunge at a five-star hotel in Mumbai and had quite the grand wedding celebrations in Mumbai. In all honesty, Aditya-Anushka's wedding spelled Love for me this year.
Vicky Kaushal and Katrina Kaif
Vicky Kaushal's marriage to Katrina Kaif was probably the biggest event of 2021. With so much buzz around the actors tying the knot to the couple exchanging wows in a grand and dreamy ceremony held in Jaipur, everything about this wedding was dreamy. While the couple kept all wedding festivities under wraps, even the guests were not allowed to share any pictures on social media. It was only after the wedding ceremony that Vicky and Katrina treated us to their wedding pictures for a week. And I must confess, I still haven't gotten over how beautiful those moments were.
Ankita Lokhande and Vicky Jain
Actress Ankita Lokhande married Vicky Jain in Mumbai on December 14 marking the last wedding of 2021. Well, the wedding was truly a sight to behold when Ankita walked to her mandap look breathtakingly gorgeous in her golden lehenga. Ankita's grand wedding was truly a proper closure to the wedding season this year.
With 2021 seeing some many new beginnings, I am sure 2022 will also give us some wonderful moments to cherish.
