Yuvraj Singh and Hazel Keech wedding is what everyone is talking about. This much-awaited marriage of cricketer Yuvraj Singh and British-Mauritian actor Hazel Keech took place in Chandigarh on Wednesday morning. The ceremony took place according to traditional Sikh rituals at a gurdwara in Punjab's Fatehgarh Sahib district.
Sporting a red Sherwani with cream coloured churidar, Yuvraj was all decked up as the groom with a red turban and 'Sehraa'. Hazel wore a heavily embroidered Lehenga with her head covered with an embroidered dupatta. Hazel, after their wedding, is now Gurbasant Kaur.
The Keech-Singh wedding comprises two ceremonies – a Sikh wedding at Baba Ram Singh Ganduan Wale’s dera in Duffera on November 30 and a Hindu ceremony in Goa on December 2. A reception has also been planned in the Capital for December 7 which PM Narendra Modi are expected to attend.
Yuvraj's mother Shabnam Singh, relatives and close friends were among the limited number of guests. Yuvraj's father, ex-cricketer Yograj Singh, did not attend the ceremony at the gurdwara. He had attended another function of his cricketer son at a hotel here on Tuesday evening.
The Sangeet function was held at the same hotel where the Indian and England teams were staying. They were joined by the Indian cricket team, test team captain Virat Kohli, coach Anil Kumble and other team members were there for the ceremony at the hotel.
