The new bride in town took to Instagram to share the first photos from the wedding ceremony. And we are smitten with the dreamy pictures! Along with the delightful shots, Athiya also penned a heartwarming caption marking the special occasion. 

“In your light, I learn how to love…Today, with our most loved ones, we got married in the home that’s given us immense joy and serenity. With a heart full of gratitude and love, we seek your blessings on this journey of togetherness,” the caption read.

Without further ado, check out their dreamy wedding pictures below: 

The first photo features the couple sharing a beautiful moment as they flash their million-dollar smiles while sitting on the mandap. The second shot captures the much-in-love couple taking pheras around the holy fire.

The third one is a close-up shot of the two from their pheras. While the last two pictures show the couple embracing each other while celebrating their union.

For their big day, the couple looked all things dreamy in their wedding pictures as they opted for pastel outfits. 

The Bollywood beauty looked endearing in a peach-hued chikankari lehenga by renowned designer Anamika Khanna. The traditional ensemble featured thread and pearl work. Her look was accentuated with a polki and pearl neckpiece, matching earrings and maang teeka.

Athiya opted for a pink dewy makeup look for her special day. The cricketer complimented her look with an ivory-coloured sherwani by the same designer. He accessorised his look with an emerald necklace.

After the ceremony, the bride’s father Suniel Shetty and her brother Ahan Shetty met the paparazzi and greeted them. The father-son duo was also seen giving away hampers to the press following the wedding ceremony. 

Taking to Instagram, Viral Bhayani posted a video of Suniel Shetty interacting with the media. 

While talking to the paps, Suniel revealed that the wedding is officially over and he has become a father-in-law. 

"It was a beautiful function and a close one. The wedding is officially done and I have become the father-in-law now,” he said. 

Confirming the reception, The Times of India quoted Suniel Shetty as saying, "I think we will definitely plan something post the IPL."

Athiya Shetty and KL Rahul’s wedding celebrations began with an intimate cocktail party on January 21, followed by mehendi and sangeet on January 22. 

Both families hosted the sangeet ceremony at the Shetty’s Khandala residence on Sunday night. Reportedly, it was an intimate function with only 70 guests in presence. 

Several videos from the sangeet night showed guests dancing at the venue as well. In the videos taken from outside the venue, guests could be seen grooving to hit Bollywood songs like ‘Besharam Rang’, ‘Humma Humma’, ‘Jumma Chumma’, ‘Jhanjariya’, ‘Dekha Jo Tujhe Yaar’, ‘Aaj Ki Party’ among others.

Reportedly, Athiya’s brother Ahan and mother Mana also left everyone stunned with their performances at the sangeet ceremony. 

As per reports, KL Rahul and Athiya Shetty’s reception will be attended by several Bollywood stars, sports celebrities, top politicians and entrepreneurs.

For the unversed, Athiya Shetty and KL Rahul started dating in 2019 after they met through a common friend and made their relationship official on Instagram in 2020. 

Last year, they also made their first public appearance at Athiya's brother Ahan Shetty's ‘Tadap’ film premiere.
