In wedded bliss

In wedded bliss

Marriages are made in heaven, but weddings are best done the Bollywood way. Even as Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor's much awaited nuptials keep the rumour mills busy, 2009 saw quite a few celebrities tying the knot.

While many like Shilpa Shetty decided to keep the ceremony private, others like Amrita Arora invited the media to be a part of their special day. But, intimate or extravagant, the Bollywood weddings made headlines around the year.
First to walk down the aisle in 2009 was actress Ayesha Takia who wed longtime boyfriend, hotelier Farhan Azmi on March 1 in a white themed wedding. The couple had originally planned to marry in December 2008, but the wedding was delayed due to the Mumbai attacks.

Three days later, actress Amrita Arora got married to boyfriend Shakeel Ladak in a Christian ceremony with sister Malaika Arora Khan and best friend Kareena Kapoor playing bridesmaids.

The celebrations that followed were a three-day affair and the gala reception which was attended by the A-list of Bollywood including Shah Rukh and Gauri Khan, Sanjay and Manyata Dutt among others.

But the biggest surprise came from Shilpa Shetty who changed her plans for a 2010 wedding to get hitched to NRI millionaire beau Raj Kundhra. Shilpa married Raj on November 22 in Lonavala and threw a lavish wedding reception in Mumbai which was attended by who’s who of Bollywood.
