The newly wed couple got married in an Anand Karaj ceremony attended by close family and friends in a Gurudwara in south Delhi. They made the announcement via social media. "Best decision of my life... Today, I married my best friend. Hello there, husband! Angad Bedi," Neha Dhupia posted on her official Instagram page along with a photograph from their wedding proceedings
Angad Bedi, known for his performance in Pink and Inside Edge, also posted: "Best friend...now wife! Well, Hello there Mrs Bedi! Neha Dhupia"
For the ceremony, Neha Dhupia looked resplendent in a blush pink ensemble by designer Anita Dongre. The lehenga was intricately crafted with the age-old Rajasthani embroideries of gota patti, zari, pearl, dori, zardozi and sequin work. She completed her look with a piece from the designer's jewellery line -- a detachable choker made in gold and uncut diamonds, which were accentuated by Colombian emeralds and small pearls
The jhumkas were in gold with uncut diamonds, Colombian emeralds, pearls and a touch of enamel, and the maangtika was made in gold with an emerald and Iolite. A pink bindi added to the beauty of the actress, who won the Miss India title in 2002. Pictured: Neha Dhupia with Angad Bedi during their wedding ceremony
The groom Angad Bedi wore a cream sherwani with a 'saafa' matching Neha's ensemble, and he carried magenta accents for a dash of colour. The wedding was attended by cricketers Ajay Jadeja, Ashish Nehra and Bollywood actor and TV host Gaurav Kapoor
A source close to the couple told IANS that Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi wanted a very intimate ceremony, and so there was not much buzz about it. From the film industry, celebrities like Karan Johar, Soha Ali Khan, Raftaar, Harshvardhan Kapoor, Rannvijay Singha, Sophie Choudry, sent in early congratulatory messages to the couple via Twitter
"My darling and most special friend Neha Dhupia who I love and adore dearly is married to the gentleman and talented Angad Bedi! Here's wishing them decades of unconditional love," Karan Johar wrote.
