Bollywood's Sidharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani tied the knot at a lavish ceremony in Rajasthan on Tuesday. Fans have been scouring the internet, sharing every sliver of information from the couple's big day, which was being held across a few days in Jaisalmer, known for its ornate palaces and temples.

Malhotra, 38, and Advani, 30, had never publicly spoken about their relationship before their wedding but are believed to have begun dating while filming Shershaah, their hit 2021 film.

The couple posted pictures on their Instagram accounts after the ceremony, with the caption: "Ab humari permanent booking hogayi hai (We are now permanently booked)," referring to a romantic line of dialogue from Shershaah.

"We seek your blessings and love on our journey ahead," they added.

Friend and designer to the stars Manish Malhotra dressed the couple for their big day.

Advani wore a custom ombre lehenga with rose tint featuring intricate embroidery inspired by the architecture in Rome, the couple's favourite city, Malhotra said.

She accessorised her look with striking chunky jewellery, also by the designer, made of ultra-fine hand-cut diamonds and Zambian emeralds.

Malhotra, meanwhile, wore a custom metallic gold sherwani featuring ivory threadwork, finishing it off with regal jewellery.

A-list guests who were also spotted include Bollywood star Shahid Kapoor and his wife Mira Rajput, producer and director Karan Johar, actress Juhi Chawla and her husband Jay Mehta, as well as actor Armaan Jain.

Johar helped launch Malhotra's career in his 2012 film Student of the Year and directed Advani in the 2018 Netflix anthology Lust Stories. Kapoor meanwhile starred with Advani in the divisive but massive hit Kabir Singh, released in 2019.

Isha Ambani, the daughter of Indian billionaire Mukesh Ambani and a childhood friend of Advani's, was also at the airport along with her husband Anand Piramal.

The wedding ceremony was an intimate affair, with only close friends and family attending. Two big wedding receptions are reportedly being planned for a later date in Delhi, where Malhotra is from, and Mumbai, for their Bollywood friends.

The venue

Security outside Suryagarh Jaisalmer had been beefed up ahead of the nuptials. In the Thar Desert, the luxury hotel has been built to resemble a 17th-century palace, and is known for hosting opulent weddings.

A 30-minute drive from Jaisalmer Aiport, the hotel is equipped with 83 rooms, which include 32 suites and four standalone havelis, which are traditional townhouses.

There are two gardens and a courtyard, which are popular wedding venues.

Rooms at Suryagarh Jaisalmer start at $277 per night, excluding taxes.
