"Lifelong love just became official."
Those were the words Bollywood actor Varun Dhawan shared on his Instagram account alongside two photographs of him with his new wife, Natasha Dalal.
The newlyweds tied the knot on Sunday in a low-key ceremony at The Mansion House resort in Alibaug, a coastal town in western India.
The original plans for their nuptials, which were set to take place in Thailand in 2020, were foiled due to the coronavirus pandemic. Despite this, the couple, decked in ivory, silver and gold, are beaming with happiness in the photos.
The Street Dancer 3D actor also shared a photograph showing the couple taking pheras, or circling the fire, an important part of a Hindu wedding.
Celebrity photographer Viral Bhayani attended the wedding. In a post on Instagram he confirmed everyone entering the wedding arena was subject to mandatory Covid-19 tests.
While details of the wedding itself have been kept largely under wraps until now, the celebrity guest list is said to have included Shah Rukh Khan, Raj Kundra, Remo D’Souza, Karan Johar, Manish Malhotra, Shilpa Shetty Kundra, Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor, and Arjun and Janhvi Kapoor.
It has been reported that Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan welcomed the Dhawan family and their guests to their beachfront bungalow in Alibaug ahead of the ceremony.
Dhawan and Dalal first met in school, but did not become a couple until they met again many years later. While they have rarely spoken publicly about their relationship, they have been pictured together on many occasions.
The festivities will continue until Tuesday.
