PANAJI : Tennis ace Mahesh Bhupati and Bollywood actress Lara Dutta solemnised their marriage on February 19 at the sunset venue of a heritage five-star resort near Candolim beach.
Former Miss Universe wore a white Ellie Saab gown with jewellery in white gold and diamonds while Bhupati was dressed in black suit for the Christian style wedding.
Among the invited guests were Ritesh Deshmukh, Sajid Khan, Bipasha Basu, Priyanka Chopra, Cellina Jaitley, designer Wendell Rodricks, model Sheetal Malhar and Leander Paes along with his wife Ria Pillai.
“The couple made sure that the wedding place located within the premise of Taj Aguada resort on the 16th century fort is beautifully decorated,” sources close to the couple said.
After the wedding ceremony, the couple in their message said, “We had a memorable time at the wedding. Looking forward to the rest of our lives together... We thank our families and all our friends for making this weekend so special for us.”
The couple had legally registered their marriage in a Mumbai Court on February 17 after which they flew down to Goa.
Just like the sangeet ceremony on the night of February 18, the wedding was also strictly invite-based. Goa’s best cuisine was served to the guests for the two-day ceremony.
