    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.

    Divyanka chose a red and gold lehenga for the occasion and her jewellery, apparently from a brand she used to endorse at that time, complemented the attire perfectly. The groom, Vivek, matched his sherwani with the bride's trousseau.

    As the actress had no time for shopping, her mother who is in Bhopal and her sister who is based in Bengaluru shopped for her bridal trousseau. Divyanka and Vivek were so busy with their shows that they had got only eight to 10 days off for their marriage and honeymoon.

    The couple met on the sets of Ye Hai Mohabbatein and love blossomed. Talking about his to-be-wife, Vivek was quoted saying, "She is grounded and has a girl-next-door charm. I am physically and emotionally attracted to her. She is also responsible, committed and passionate. She would make a perfect wife."

    Vivek Dahiya was 31 when he married Divyanka, who is 10 years senior to him, work-wise. When he met her on the sets, since he being relatively new to the industry compared to Divyanka, he had no plans of getting married anytime soon.

    But when his co-star suggested Divyanka, he could not say no. Vivek was quoted saying in 2015, "I have just started my career and marriage was a far-fetched idea for me. Pankaj Bhatia, who plays Bala on 'Yeh Hai Mohabatein', first approached me with the idea. Initially, I thought he had lost his senses but I realised our goals in life were similar. It's an arranged-cum-love marriage."

    The actress recalled, "We were introduced to each other by a common friend in August 2015 for marriage prospects. After this, it was awkward for us to shoot together. But I don't think our co-actors ever got a hint. There was no courtship as we were looking at the relationship culminating into marriage."

    Vivek Dahiya added, "Our friends felt we were like-minded people. We started meeting regularly only after we got our parents' approval. We were both at a marriageable age and were not interested in a fling."

    When asked what attracted her to Vivek, Divyanka Tripathi gushed, "I am a normal girl aspiring to lead a normal life with my partner. He is genuine and simple. He is also a guide who calms me when I'm stressed. He cares for me. It's a comforting feeling. Everything is good about Vivek and women should envy me. Nazar Na lage."
