Congratulations are in order for Rajkummar Rao and Patralekhaa Paul, who have *finally* tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in Chandigarh. The two had been dating for over a decade and decided to come together in matrimony by hosting a close-knit affair in the presence of loved ones. The celebrations kickstarted with an all-white engagement party two days ago, followed by a Hindu wedding at The Oberoi Sukhvilas Spa Resort.
Both Rajkummar and Patralekhaa took to Instagram to share the first set of photographs from their big day.
"Finally after 11 years of love, romance, friendship and fun, I got married to my everything today, my soulmate, my best friend, my family. Today there is no greater happiness for me than being called your husband, Patralekhaa. Here’s to forever...and beyond," the actor wrote in the heartwarming post. His wife shared another set of pictures from the nuptials and wrote, "I got married to my everything today; my boyfriend, my partner in crime, my family, my soulmate...My best friend for the last 11 years! There is no greater feeling than to be your wife! Here’s to our forever."
Several Bollywood celebrities took to the comments section to congratulate the newlyweds. Priyanka Chopra Jonas wrote, "I'm not crying you are crying! Congratulations, wohoooo." Actor and environmental activist Dia Mirza wrote, "Congratulations ❤️ love, love and more love always." Many others including Taapsee Pannu, Kiara Advani, Sanya Malhotra, Athiya Shetty, and Bhumi Pednekar, also wished the couple.
For the ceremony, the couple donned stunning Sabyasachi ensembles. Rajkummar Rao wore an ivory kurta and pant set with a delicately embroidered Nehru jacket and a red safa. To complement her groom, Patralekhaa was seen in a red and gold bridal lehenga, accessorised with a matthapatti, nath, earrings, necklace, bangles, and rings, from Sabyasachi's jewellery collection. The wedding décor featured white chrysanthemums along with marigold flowers suspended from strings of fairy lights.
