Bursting with hearty giggles and oodles of love, the wedding was truly magical, to say the least. The photographs are a testimony! Sharing the same on Instagram, RajKummar Rao wrote, "Finally, after 11 years of love, romance, friendship and fun, I got married to my everything today, my soulmate, my best friend, my family.

Embracing a traditional bridal look, Patralekhaa donned a red tulle embroidered buti sari paired with an embroidered veil that came replete with golden accents. For the jewels, she donned a heavy choker with a matching mathapatti, and jhumkis along with a delicate nath - all handcrafted in 22k gold with uncut diamonds, pearls, and emeralds by Sabyasachi Heritage Jewellery.
The Bengali bride even adorned her forehead with the traditional white & red Chandan bindis. However, the highlight of her look turned out to be the customised embroidered veil. The actress got a Bengali verse embroidered on the border of her veil which read, "Aamar praanbhora bhaalobaasa aami tomaye somorpan korilam." In English, it means "I surrender my love-filled heart to you". Now that's one helluva way to celebrate culture and love! FYI, the verse was specially penned by Sabyasachi himself.
RajKummar Rao, on the other hand, wore an embroidered raw silk ivory jacket featuring gold-plated Bengal tiger buttons. He wore it over a Bangalore silk kurta and churidar, and also added a red safa to up the coordination game. A Japanese pearl necklace from Sabyasachi Heritage Jewellery rounded off the groom's glorious look.
The couple got hitched amid a picturesque setup created by the uber-talented team of Devika Narain. The special moments took place under a sky of gleaming marigolds. And guess what, even the Jaimala featured a blend of marigolds and green leaves. Ditching the fancy and trending varmala designs, the couple instead made the marigold garland look uber cool! **New trend alert**
And oh, here's a paw-dorable portrait of Patralekhaa with her doggos!
