No Bollywood frills — that’s the apt technique to describe Shalmali Kholgade’s wedding ceremony. The singer tied the knot with long-time boyfriend Farhan Shaikh in an intimate ceremony at her Andheri home on November 22. Ahead of their reception at this time at a five-star lodge in Mumbai, Kholgade says the primary week of her married life has been pure bliss. “The ceremony was precisely how Farhan and I had dreamt of, for so long as we will keep in mind. We had solely household and associates in attendance, about 15 individuals, all of whom might slot in the lounge. People thought the low-key wedding ceremony was due to the brand new variant [of the virus], however that is how we at all times needed it,” beams the brand new bride.

The couple didn’t shrink back from together with a DIY aspect of their nuptials, and made their very own wedding ceremony bands. Attending a ring-making workshop in Japan throughout a 2017 trip got here in useful. “We had instructed one another then that if this relationship goes all the best way, these might cross off as our wedding ceremony rings. Four years on, these are literally our wedding ceremony rings. There is a triangle on my band, and a carved triangle on his. One is supposed to suit the opposite.” Sounds romantic and dreamy, till Kholgade sportingly drops the punch line. “We had been so lazy that we didn’t even polish them earlier than our wedding ceremony!”
The singer, each bit the radiant bride, says marriage has introduced in “a surreal bond”. “Even in my wildest goals, I didn’t think about being this comfortable. We have lived collectively for six years, so nothing is altering. But being married to somebody who is aware of each temper of mine is particular.”
