Armaan Jain and Anissa Malhotra
Childhood sweethearts, Armaan Jain and Anissa Malhotra's starry wedding celebrations were held between Grand Hyatt and The St Regis Mumbai.
Actor and Businessman Armaan Jain, and fashion blogger and marketing consultant, Anissa Malhotra tied the knot in Mumbai. The wedding celebrations commenced on a high energy note with the groom’s sisters Kareena Kapoor Khan and Karisma Kapoor grooving to the dhol at Armaan’s baraat. WeddingSutra Favorites – Milestones to Memories pulled all the stops to ensure this grand wedding was magnificent and impeccably planned. DreamzKrraft made the venue truly magical with stunning décor. Sam and Ekta (who also did the couple’s pre-wedding shoot) captured the emotional and glamorous moments of all the celebrations.
Armaan, who is cousins with Kareena Kapoor Khan, Karisma Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor, went down on one knee and popped the big question to Anissa in the presence of their loved ones, earlier last year. He shared the photos on Instagram with a long note, parts of which stated, “The moment I eagerly waited for since the last seven years has finally arrived. Everything I rehearsed flew out of my mind. I finally realized what my yoga teacher said when he meant to go blank and be in the moment. Thank you for being my backbone, pillar of strength and sticking with me through thick and thin. My Armaan was to be with my Anissa forever, and you said ‘YES’. I cannot wait to spend the rest of my life with you!”
The duo hosted a mehndi ceremony on Sunday, the 2nd of February, which was graced by Bollywood’s who’s who, along with the illustrious ‘Kapoor khandaan’ – Karisma Kapoor, Randhir Kapoor, Rajiv Kapoor and Babita. Several other celebrities, including Shweta Bachchan Nanda, Kiara Advani, Tara Sutaria, Suniel Shetty, Sunita Kapoor, Boney Kapoor, Anil Ambani, Tina Ambani, Ritesh Sidhwani and wife Dolly, were also in attendance. However, Rishi Kapoor and wife Neetu gave it a miss. Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and the Nawabs too were missing from the pictures. We wish to see the family come together for the wedding soon.
The venue was decorated with colorful drapes and gigantic butterflies. Keeping in mind the mehndi theme, ‘Colorful Chic’, the star couple grabbed everyone’s attention with Armaan sporting a simple powder-pink bandhgala, while Anissa looked like a dream in a lime-green lehenga with mirror work. Soon the duo, along with their friends and family brought the house down as they danced to the thrilling beats of the Dhol.
For the wedding, groom Armaan wore an off-white sherwani with classic Dhaka embroidery in ivory by Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla. The sherwani featured stunning details of sequins and stone. He paired it with a kurta and a gold safa with gota work. His mother Rimi Kapoor, brother Aadar Jain and his girlfriend Tara Sutaria were dressed head to toe in Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla outfits. The bride, Anissa went with a traditional red lehenga with gold embellishments. She finished her bridal look by keeping her hair tied into a bun which she opened after the pheras got over. Her look was accessorised with a polki and emerald choker and raani haar with matching earrings and maang tikka.
The newlyweds hosted a lavish sangeet at The St. Regis Mumbai for their friends, relatives and colleagues to celebrate their union. Anissa looked gorgeous in a shimmery silver lehenga. She accentuated her look with a diamond choker and a headgear while Armaan opted for a black bandhgala which he paired with a matching black velvet stole. The star-studded guest list included cousins Ranbir Kapoor with his girlfriend Alia Bhatt and mother Neetu Singh, Kareena Kapoor and Karisma Kapoor with her daughter. Several other B-town stars like Shah Rukh Khan with wife Gauri Khan. Tara Sutaria, Karan Johar, Shilpa Shetty, Rani Mukherjee, Soha Ali Khan with husband Kunal Kemmu, Raveena Tandon, Rekha, Kiara Advani, Anil Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor, the Ambanis, Athiya Shetty, Shanaya Kapoor, Malika Arora and boyfriend Arjun Kapoor amongst others were snapped looking their stylish best.
