In a heartwarming event that combined the charm of old traditions with the exuberance of modernity, Bollywood star Sonakshi Sinha and actor Zaheer Iqbal officially tied the knot on Sunday in a regal and intimate wedding ceremony held in Mumbai. Attended by close friends and family members, the wedding marked the beginning of a new chapter in the lives of the beloved couple who have been together for the past seven years.

The newlyweds chose the perfect setting for their big day, surrounded by the warmth and blessings of their nearest and dearest. Sonakshi Sinha, known for her stunning performance in the film ‘Dabangg,’ made an emotional statement by donning her mother Poonam Sinha’s vintage ivory saree for the wedding ceremony. This elegant choice was complemented by her hair being styled into a neat bun adorned with white roses, adding to her refined and classic bridal look.

On the other hand, Zaheer Iqbal opted for a simple yet sophisticated all-white kurta ensemble, staying true to a minimalist approach that perfectly matched the occasion’s intimate atmosphere. The couple’s wedding attire was a beautiful balance of tradition and simplicity, resonating deeply with the gathered loved ones.

As evening fell, the couple transitioned from their wedding outfits to their reception attire, with Sonakshi Sinha capturing the spotlight in a royal red saree. This bold and vibrant choice for the evening’s celebrations embodied a striking contrast to her earlier look. To top it off, she was seen flaunting sindoor (vermillion), a traditional mark signifying marital bliss, paying homage to age-old customs while radiating modern grace. Zaheer remained consistent with his classic style, continuing to don a white kurta-ensemble which provided a perfect backdrop to Sonakshi’s vivid red saree.
