Debonair India cricketer Yuvraj Singh and Bollywood actress-model Hazel Keech on Wednesday tied the knot as per Sikh traditions at a gurdwara in Punjab's Fatehgarh Sahib district.
In a red sherwani with cream coloured churidar and sporting a beard, Yuvi was all decked up as the groom with a red turban and 'sehraa'.
Hazel looked gorgeous in a heavily embroidered maroon lehenga with her head covered with an embroidered dupatta.
The marriage ceremony was solemnized as per the Sikh traditional 'Anand Karaj' at the gurdwara in Dufera village in Fatehgarh Sahib village, about 40 km from Yuvraj's hometown of Chandigarh.

Yuvraj's father, ex-cricketer Yograj Singh, did not attend the ceremony at the gurdwara, though he had earlier attended the pre-wedding functions of 34-year-old son at a hotel on Tuesday evening.
After the 'Anand Karaj' ceremony, the couple got the blessings of Dera head Baba Ram Singh. The couple tied the knot at the venue which was chosen by Yuvraj's mother Shabnam.
Yograj had already said that he would not attend the wedding as he was against marriage being solemnised by a Dera leader, "as he believes in god, not religious leaders."
Security arrangements were in place at the wedding venue. The ceremony was followed with a party in Chandigarh.
The couple ushered in their wedding functions with a cocktail Sangeet on Tuesday evening at a hotel where they were joined by the Indian cricket team, which earlier won the 3rd Test match against England in Mohali.
The sangeet function was held at the same hotel where the Indian and England teams were staying.
Indian Test team captain Virat Kohli, coach Anil Kumble and other team members joined Yuvraj and Hazel for the ceremony at the hotel.
