At exactly this moment, a handful of staff members appear to be moving things into Shahid Kapoor’s beachfront former-bachelor-pad. With his beautiful bride waiting to be welcomed into her marital home, it’s not surprising there is frenetic activity at the actor’s suburban Mumbai home. But while preparations for upcoming events (including a star-studded reception in Mumbai) continue, handpicked guests at Shahid and Mira Rajput’s low-key July 7 wedding are still raving about the intimate celebrations.
Unfake and amazing — that’s the best way to describe the entirely unpretentious wedding, with well under 50 guests in attendance. From the immediate families of the illustrious groom and his blushing bride, to just a few familiar faces, this wasn’t the tamasha that so many big, fat Indian weddings tend to be. ‘Shoes here, Vows there, Love everywhere,’ read an adorable sign at the entrance. It seemed to capture the mood of the day perfectly.
Moving from a gurdwara to a friend’s farmhouse and on to The Trident-Oberoi in Gurgaon, the gorgeous couple stopped only for a few minutes to allow photojournalists a chance to snap up their first official picture together as man and wife. Resplendent in a blush-pink Anamika Khanna lehenga, Mira held Shahid’s hand timidly, as he stood tall in a cream sherwani by his designer buddy Kunal Rawal. A far cry from the rocking, action-packed party of the night before (where Mira matched Shahid step for step on the dance floor) — this was Mr. & Mrs. Kapoor at their formal best.
Now, with hush-hush bachelor and hen parties behind them and a massive reception to look forward to, the newlyweds hardly have time for a breather. But who needs rest when the action is as unfake and incredible as this?
