Soha Ali Khan married Kunal Khemu in an intimate ceremony in Mumbai on the 25th of January 2015. The lovebirds kept the ceremony strictly a family affair but we made sure to scour social media to bring to you the inside information and the best of the pictures from the celebrity wedding.
The wedding festivities began with the mehendi ceremony for which the bride-to-be wore a gorgeous pink outfit. The Ritu Kumar ensemble comprised of a long chanderi pink kurta with gota work on the yoke, a pastel sharara with leheriya pattern and a broad border.
The outfit was finished with a matching leheriya dupatta with gota embellishments. Soha let her outfit do all the talking and kept the jewellery to a minimum, wearing just a pair of chunky jhumkas.
For the wedding, Soha opted for a Sabyasachi lehenga paired with heirloom jewellery that made her look every bit the part of the royalty that she belonged to. The shimmering gold lehenga and matching choli were a treat to the eyes. The orange dupatta draped on her head added a dash of colour to her ensemble. We loved her antique maang tika and jhoomar that lent her look a classic touch.
Kunal Khemu wore a beige bandhgala with a jewelled silk turban, matching up to his royal wife. For the photo-op, the couple was flanked by Soha’s brother Saif Ali Khan and wife Kareena Kapoor. We again give full marks to Saif for his sartorial choice. He picked an elegant white bandhgala and teamed it with a pink turban. The royalty in his blood was evident in the way he carried the look.
There are few men in Bollywood who can look as dashing in a bandhgala. Kareena beautifully complemented his look in a simple yet gorgeous Manish Malhotra saree. The embellishments on the pallu of the net saree were subtle, with the bling coming from her diamond jewellery. We loved how she kept her look simple so that she did not steal the thunder at the wedding.
Soha made up for the lack of colour in her bridal lehenga with her reception outfit. She wore a rani pink Sanjay Garg lehenga that was tastefully paired with precious ruby jewellery. We felt that a bridal lehenga worn for a reception could do with some more bling – be it from zardosi work, embroidery or from Swarovski crystals. Her outfit was nevertheless rich and ornate, with the gold zari work on it exuding richness.
Kunal Khemu kept the look casual with a blue kurta with a navy Nehru jacket and added a pink pocket square for a pop of colour and to match Soha’s outfit. We thought they looked perfect together – luxe without being over the top.
We also loved what the Kapoors wore for the wedding reception. Both the sisters chose their favourite designer Manish Malhotra for the occasion.
While Kareena wore a mint green and pink lehenga paired with dazzling diamond jewellery, Karisma opted for a classic white and gold combination. Their mother looked resplendent in a green salwar-kameez. Saif made an excellent choice with his navy kurta and velvet jacket paired with jodhpuris.
We loved the wedding style on display at Soha Ali Khan and Kunal Khemu's wedding. The outfits were perfect for a low-key wedding of this kind. We wish the couple the very best! What did you think about the newly wed couple’s outfits? Do let us know!
