Former Miss India, popular TV host and model Shonali Nagrani got hitched to her long-time beau, photographer, cinematographer and band member of Pentagram Shiraz Bhattacharya in an idyllic country resort in Kochi, Kerala. The couple was surrounded by their near and dear ones when exchanging their vows.
The bride looked resplendent in her beautiful designer and heirloom ethnic wear in all the wedding festivities. For her mehendi, she wore a Manali Jagtap while for the wedding, a Ritu Kumar lehenga choli was her pick. The Delhi reception saw her in a Rakesh Aggarwal saree while the Mumbai reception saw her in Pakistani designer Faraz Manan’s halter gown with an embroidered sherwani jacket. The groom gave her company at his traditional best. Shonali, who had two rules in life, never to marry someone from the same industry and never to marry a Bengali, incidentally broke both by marrying Shiraz. The baraat was headed by the groom himself playing the dhol and was accompanied by 30 percussionists, putting everyone in a trance-like ambience. The couple’s friends added in to the festivities. Some of the guests included music composers Vishal-Shekhar, Neha Dhupia, Shveta Salve, Anushka Manchanda, Niketan Madhok, Sophie Choudhary, Pia Trivedi with fiancé Ritwik Bhattacharya, Mandira Bedi, Sarah Jane Diaz to name a few.
