Krunal Pandya and Pankhuri Sharma, Mumbai
Mumbai Indians all-rounder Krunal Pandya tied the knot with Pankhuri Sharma in an ultimate wedding extravaganza.
It’s time to stop playing the field, get the maidens bowled over and prepare for a century this wedding season for so many cricketers including Zaheer Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Virat Kohli and now Krunal Pandya!
While #Virushka have been grabbing the headlines for over a month, Indian team’s ace all-rounder Hardik Pandya’s brother, Krunal Pandya married his long-time girlfriend Pankhuri Sharma at the JW Marriott Mumbai Juhu.
Krunal plays for the Mumbai Indians in the IPL and represents Indian ‘A’ as well. He recently took to the micro-blogging site, Twitter, and announced his wedding with a series of photographs that were, unsurprisingly, cricket-themed. Planned by Swati Sabharwal of BigBash Entertainment, this wedding was a complete entertainer with several well-thought-out details and stunning decor by DreamzKraft.
The haldi ceremony was conducted on December 26 at the JW Marriott Mumbai Juhu by the poolside. The decor was kept minimal with yellow as a canvas for splashes of blue and pink. Pankhuri wore a simple yellow suit for the ceremony.
Pankhuri looked like a diva in a red lehenga and choli with minimal jewellery. The floral details in zari and stone-work on the dupatta border added the perfect dose of bling. Krunal, on the other hand, sported all-black complete with a jacket in the same monotone.
Krunal and Pankhuri tied the knot the following day. The decor was elegant and colorful. Krunal chose to wear a powder blue sherwani with floral details for the wedding ceremony while Pankhuri was gorgeous in a red, heavily embroidered lehenga. The decor had a profusion of floral details with the mandap featuring redolent tuberoses suspended from the ceiling.
The reception saw Pankhuri in a deep maroon lehenga and choli featuring heavy embroidery. She chose a statement choker necklace and complemented it with chandelier earrings. Krunal looked every bit the suave Maharaja in his outfit; a short black bandhgala jacket with details in gold. The decor for the reception continued with the thread of floral details.
