Cricketer S Sreesanth could never have been a happier man for he tied the knot with his long-time girlfriend Bhuvaneshwari Kumari at Guruvayoor Sree Krishna Temple in Kerala in the wee hours on Thursday.

The marriage ceremony lasted for 15 minutes and was attended by close family members of the couple.

After the wedding, the newly-married couple headed to Sreesanth’s home in Kochi.
Dressed in traditional Kerala costumes, the bride and the groom exchanged rings and garlands.

The couple has been going steady for the past few years and Bhuvaneshwari stood
by him in times of crisis when he was jailed following a spot-fixing scandal during the last edition of the Indian Premier League.

The bride comes from a royal family of Jaipur and is a jewellery designer by profession.
While the wedding was said to be a close door affair with just the family members of the bride and the groom, the sangeet held the previous night at Le Meridien Hotel in Kochi, had a select list of friends and family.

The reception held on Thursday evening was in true Rajasthani style.

The guest list had Sreesanth’s friends from the sports, film and fashion fraternity.   
The sangeet ceremony was a colourful affair. Sreesanth was dressed in an off white churidar and Bhuvaneshwari wore a yellow Rajasthani lehenga with mehendi on her hands and a diamond choker to complete the look.

Those present at the sangeet ceremony were transported to Rajasthan for there were dancers, who were flown in from Rajasthan, just for the evening.

They danced, balancing pots on their head to Rajasthani folk beats. 

 There were 60 food counters serving all kinds of cuisines including traditional Rajasthani and Kerala dishes.

Fashion designer Ramesh Dembla was one among the few who was invited to Sreesanth’s sangeet ceremony.

“Sreesanth is a close friend and there were just ten of us from Bangalore. The evening was not only colourful but it took us to a different setting altogether. I also got to meet a lot of old friends from Mumbai,” said Ramesh.
