Cricketer Yuvraj Singh and British model and actress Hazel Keech kicked off their pre-wedding ceremonies in Chandigarh on 29 November. The couple will tie the knot at Fatehgarh Sahib gurudwara, 50 kilometres from Chandigarh on 30 November 2016. The ceremony took place according to traditional Sikh rituals. The gurudwara wedding in Chandigarh is to be followed by a grand wedding reception in Delhi today on 2 December and another wedding reception in Goa.
The couple tied the knot at the venue which was chosen by Yuvraj’s mother Shabnam Singh.
The wedding was a private affair in Chandigarh. Hazel made for a stunning bride in maroon colour lehenga with intricate golden embroidery while Yuvraj looked dapper in velvet sherwani, which he paired with maroon turban and mojri. After visiting Gurudwara, the couple was blessed by Sant Baba Ram Singh Ji.
Wedding at the Dera was performed as per Sikh rituals Yuvraj’s father and former cricketer-actor Yograj Singh did not attend the wedding ceremony of his son in the dera.
Yuvraj had already said that he would not attend the wedding as he was against marriage being solemnised by a Dera leader, “as he believes in god, not religious leaders.”
