Monitoring Desk

MUMBAI: Indian cricketer KL Rahul and Bollywood actress Athiya Shetty tied the knot at her father, actor Suniel Shetty’s Khandala farmhouse.

On Monday, the couple took to Instagram to share the good news with matching posts which read, “‘In your light, I learn how to love…’ Today, with our most loved ones, we got married in the home that’s given us immense joy and serenity. With a heart full of gratitude and love, we seek your blessings on this journey of togetherness.”

While Athiya chose a subtle pink chikankari lehenga by Anamika Khanna for the special day, KL Rahul complemented her in an embroidered ivory sherwani by the designer.

Athiya Shetty, who tied the knot with KL Rahul in front of a 70 people guest list, wore a subtle pink chikankari lehenga. This delicate piece is handmade, handwoven and made in silk with zardozi and jaali work. It also features a veil and dupatta made of silk organza replete with intricate handiwork.

In an interview with Vogue, designer Anamika Khanna revealed the lehenga “is a labour of love and took approximately 10,000 hours to make.”

Anamika also talked about the inspiration behind the wedding lehenga and revealed it was Athiya Shetty herself.

She added, “Athiya’s got extremely fine, subtle, and beautiful taste. I wanted to develop something special for her that was resonant with the fact that she was going to be the bride, but she was never going to be that bride for whom everything else takes over. She has a very strong personality, and I think she’s acutely aware of it.”
