Nayanthara and Vignesh Shivan are married! The couple tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in Chennai on June 9, which saw close friends and family in attendance.
Nayanthara and Vignesh Shivan met on the sets of a film back in 2015, when she was the actor and he was directing her. On the same day, Vignesh shared a series of snaps from their wedding ceremony that took place earlier in the day.
The wedding saw several of the couple’s friends and industry colleagues, including Shah Rukh Khan, Rajinikanth, Suriya, and Vijay, and filmmakers Mani Ratnam and Atlee, according to media reports. Several other colleagues such as Katrina Kaif, Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Kajal Aggarwal and many others took to social media to wish the couple a lifetime of happiness.
The ceremony, which looks straight from a fairytale, saw the bride dressed in a stunning vermillion red saree and veil, by the label JADE. Designed by Monica Shah, the intricate tone on tone embroidery is “inspired by the carvings of the temples of Hoysala,” the label noted on their Instagram handle. The design was a tribute to Nayanthara’s love for tradition, and her look was complete with stunning emerald jewellery.
The groom matched his ladylove in a stunning veshti, kurta and shawl set, also suctom-made by the label JADE, with his outfit resonating with the four pheras signifying Dharma, Arth, Kama and Moksha, the label added.
