Jasprit Bumrah and Sanjana Ganesan’s wedding is causing waves—and for good reason! From their outfits to the reusable décor—here’s everything you need to know about their fairytale wedding
Recently, India’s pace bowler Jasprit Bumrah shared the first pictures of his wedding with sports presenter Sanjana Ganesan. Away from the media frenzy and prying paparazzi, the bashful duo said ‘I do’ in the company of family and close friends in the south of Goa earlier this week.
The wedding mood and ambience spelled spring through vibrant flowers, soft pink outfits and lush greenery.
For the Anand Karaj ceremony, the bride wore a blush pink Sabyasachi lehenga while the groom arrived in a complementary pale pink sherwani.
While Ganesan’s bridal lehenga was meticulously embroidered using silk floss, her look was completed with heritage jewellery set in 18-carat gold and comprising uncut diamonds, tourmalines and emeralds, as shared by the designer on his Instagram page.
Captured in love
The duo announced their union on Instagram by sharing a now-viral picture clicked by wedding photographer, Joseph Radhik’s team. While sharing the picture—which has over 2,666,724 likes and is still growing—Bumrah wrote: “Love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course. Steered by love, we have begun a new journey together. Today is one of the happiest days of our lives and we feel blessed to be able to share the news of our wedding and our joy with you.”
Fun under the sun
The stage was set at the Alila Diva in South Goa for a fairytale union like no other. The wedding festivities began with a welcome luncheon where the bride and groom made their appearance in a grey ensemble by Raw Mango and an ivory kurta by Kunal Rawal respectively. Soon, the duo settled down for a fun haldi ceremony where the bride looked radiant in a yellow sari designed by Anavila while the groom appeared relaxed in a grey kurta by Antar-Agni.
The young couple paid careful attention to allowing local artisans and craftsmanship steal the spotlight at their pre-wedding events. For the mehendi, the duo sported outfits by Anita Dongre featuring hand-painted pichhwai work. For the chooda ceremony, the bride chose traditional red and white bangles instead of the now-trending ivory and pink options.
For the sangeet, Ganesan twirled in a purple lehenga and the groom danced the night away in a deconstructed sherwani in midnight navy adorned with custom-made buttons and bespoke patent black brogues.
For the cocktail soiree, Bumrah cut a picture of elegance in a made-to-measure look created by Ermenegildo Zegna’s artistic director, Alessandro Sartori. The bride stood beside him in a striking purple creation by designer Amit Aggarwal.
For the Anand Karaj, the duo sat together in a garden of locally grown flowers created by Devika Narain & Company.
