Love seems to be in the air for Bollywood royalty, Soha Ali Khan and Kunal Khemu, who finally tied the knot this week after seven years of dating. Khan, an actress and also sister of superstar Saif Ali Khan, celebrated her special union with an uncharacteristically small and private mehndi, ceremony and reception in Mumbai. The couple had gotten engaged this past July in the city of love, Paris.
The mehndi took place in Khan’s Mumbai apartment where brother Saif Ali Khan, sister-in-law Kareena Kapoor, and friend Arpita Khan all huddled around the actress as she got her mehndi done. Wearing a Rajasthani style Ritu Kumar outfit, Khan looked stunning from head to toe. Her little furry friend did come in a close second for best looking though!
The wedding ceremony took place in the Khans’ Mumbai private residence witnessed by a private registrar and just close family members. Khan donned a stunning orange and gold Sabyasachi lehenga with a side matha patti and gold choker, while her hubby Kunal Khemu complemented her in a white and gold sherwani.
The wedding ended with a star studded reception. In attendance were Bollywood favorites such as Kareena Kapoor, Karisma Kapoor, Amrita Rao, Malaika Arora Khan, Karan Johar, Neha Dhupia, Konkona Sen Sharma, Arpita Khan Sharma, Sophie Chaudhry and Arshad Warsi.
Khan chose to close out her wedding day in a pink and gold Sanjay Garg lengha from his Winter Festives 2014 collection while Khemu opted for a more casual charcoal black Nehru jacket and blue kurta. For an added punch he sported a fuchsia pocket square to match his new bride.

We’ve got the joining of two beautiful cultures on the blog today with the union of Rock and Adela photographed by Monika Photo Art. Rock is Bengali and Adela is Indonesian so together they were able to fuse their two cultures with a little twist of western traditions to make their ultimate dream wedding come to life in under six months!
Monika Photo Art captured this wedding beautifully. I love her portrait shots, especially the ones with the bridal party. The bridesmaids looked so beautiful in their red and gold saris. Adela was glowing in her beige studded lengha with exquisite gold jewelry to match. Rock didn’t look too shabby himself in his red silk patterned achkin.

Adela shares: “Our table decor was extremely simple, including a low arrangement o f white hydrangeas and peach roses with gold table place cards, my wedding garb was both from Indonesia and Bangladesh and we featured music from both our countries as well. We incorporated both traditions into our wedding reception – salaman from Indonesia, featuring guests coming up to the bride and groom and personally wishing them well with congratulatory remarks, as well as wearing the flower garland, seeing into the mirror and drinking sweet juice (this, from my husband’s side). This wedding was testament to the culturally relevant lifestyle we both plan to live by!”
Thank you so much to Monika Photo Art for submitting today’s wedding and congratulations to Rock and Adela!
