After an eventful mehendi and sangeet ceremony, Yeh Hai Mohabbatein actress Divyanka Tripathi exchanged wedding vows with actor beau Vivek Dahiya in a royal ceremony in her hometown, Bhopal, last night. The venue, a plush resort, was beautifully lit up and the entrance was tastefully done. Sources say that a thick security cover kept the huge crowd gathered outside at bay. The two actors married according to traditional Hindu customs.

A source informs, “Divyanka chose a red and gold lehenga for the occasion and her jewellery — apparently from a brand she endorses — complemented the attire perfectly.”
“The groom, Vivek, matched his sherwani with the bride’s trousseau. The ceremony started at 9 pm with the entry of the baraat followed by the varmala [garland exchange ceremony],” adds the source.
An elaborate vegetarian spread was laid out for the 200-plus guests. As the attendees gave the couple their blessings and mingled with each other, the couple proceeded for the pheras. The bidaai ceremony was scheduled to take place in the early hours of Saturday.
“A limited number of guests were invited for the event. From the industry Vipul Roy, Manish Naggdev, Pankaj Bhatia and Rajesh Kumar were present during the haldi, mehendi and sangeet ceremonies,” informed a guest at the wedding.
The couple will conclude their wedding festivities with a reception in Vivek’s hometown, Chandigarh, on July 10. A bash in Mumbai has also been planned on July 14 for the small screen folk.
