From matching their ensembles to their steps, India’s premier leg-spinner, Yuzvendra Chahal, tied the knot with his partner, Dhanashree Verma, on December 22, 2020.
Featuring Bollywood-style dancing, lots of laughter and a love story that managed to win hearts—this wedding had it all!
Young, talented and loads of fun— Yuzvendra Chahal and Dhanashree Verma won the hearts of netizens across the globe with their hard-to-miss chemistry. Here’s what happened when this fun-loving duo tied the knot…
While most of us took to baking and working out during the lockdown, Indian cricketer Yuzvendra Chahal decided to add a little more spring to his footwork by signing up for dance lessons. The cricketer approached Verma whose viral dance videos on Instagram and YouTube has many fans—one of them being Chahal. Soon, what started as a teacher-student bond developed into friendship. It wasn’t long before their connection blossomed into love.
The cricketer wasted no time in declaring his love and this whirlwind romance became public knowledge in August when the duo announced their engagement on social media.
From once upon a time to happily ever after
The duo decided to wed in Gurugram on the 22nd of December surrounded by family and close friends. A spring-themed engagement ceremony flagged off the festivities. Soft pastel tones and floral elements set the mood for the event. The couple exchanged rings in matching ensembles of cream and ivory created for them by designer Tarun Tahiliani.
What followed was a bright and fun haldi ceremony. It came as no surprise that the cheerful couple chose shades of bright yellow. Marigold flowers, floral jewellery and big smiles were the highlight of this event.
For the pheras, the duo struck a classic pose in ivory and red bridal ensembles. Chahal wore an ivory sherwani and a pagdi while Verma looked radiant in her red lehenga. The photographs of the couple sitting against a backdrop of crystals and red roses took social media by storm. While wishes poured in from the cricketing fraternity and across the globe, many of Chahal’s colleagues and notable personalities graced the celebration with their presence.
