Asian weddings are notoriously huge affairs, so, add a celebrity into the mix and we can only imagine the extravagant lengths taken! Fascinated by the lengths some will go to celebrate a marriage we at Maharaja thought we would look into some of the greatest celebrity Asian weddings of all time, talking inspiration and encouraging new ideas.
Dia Mirza & Sahil Sangha
The actress tied the knot back in 2014, not scrimping in any area of her sublime celebration. Marrying her long-term partner, Sahill Sangha, the wedding was pretty passionate about consistency, colour coordinating everything! This included the décor, table wear and even the attire.
Shilpa Shetty & Raj Kundra
As one of the country’s most desired women the community of Asian men were saddened to find out Shilpa Shetty was planing to get hitched, seeing Raj Kundra as the eligible bachelor. The celebrations begun with a Mehndi-cum-Sangeet ceremony, all taking place at a close friend’s beautiful farmhouse.
Following the grand affair they held the reception at a posh hotel in Mumbai, all the while adorned in some incredible kundan jewellery.
Kareena Kapoor & Saif Ali Khan
As one of the most talked about events of the year this wedding will go down in history, seeing film personalities, royal families and celebrities from the world of politics and sport show their faces. Booking a 5 star hotel in Gurgaen (featuring a helipad!) the display was a cultural phenomenon, paying homage to Indian tradition in an admiral fashion.
Genelia & Riteish Deshmukh
When the actor announced he was to marry his actress girlfriend we expected a hefty Bollywood affair, and we were not let down at all! With a dazzling ceremony as part of a five-day affair no corners were cut, with the star-studded mehendi being a highlight for many.
George Clooney & Amal Alamuddin
As Hollywood’s hottest couple we expected nothing more than perfection when Clooney married Human Rights lawyer, Amal Alamuddin. Unfolding in Venice the two were joined by close family and friends, ensuring no paparazzi made their way to the event. Reportedly they enjoyed a simplistic affair with a few nods to the bride’s Asian background.
Although all showing diverse tastes, each and every one of these celebrations have one thing in coming, great planning! If you are planning to get married and need someone to help finalise those important details then be sure to contact Maharaja today!
