2022 was a great year and we have seen it as a big year for celebrity weddings. There were a lot of celebrity weddings from Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor to Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck. Bollywood actress Athiya Shetty and Cricketer KL Rahul kick-started the wedding season of 2023 with a bash and the pictures from the ceremonies are clearly showing it. Seeing their fairytale wedding pictures, soon-to-be-wed couples are surely going to follow them and take inspiration from them for their upcoming ceremonies.
Athiya Shetty was looking nothing less than a doll in an old-rose pink chikankari lehenga as she stepped out to tie knots with her long-time beau cricketer and now husband, Rahul KL. Finally putting an end to the rumors, the couple pulled our heartstrings and sealed the deal on 23rd January in an intimate ceremony with the presence of close family and friends at Sunil Shetty’s Khandala residence.
Although Athiya Shetty and KL Rahul, however, never confirmed their relationship officially, the duo often shared utter cues on social media about their love affair. For the wedding, Athiya Shetty set the bridal look standards really high for the brides planning to marry in 2023 and with a kind-of soft bride look from Anamika. Anamika Khanna hand-picked a bespoke minimalistic and royal outfit after spending thousands of hours of hard work that perfectly captured Athiya Shetty’s conduct.
Wedding couture from Athiya Shetty’s wedding
Starting the pre-wedding celebrations with the sangeet night on Sunday evening, the couple tied the knot in the presence of a 70 people guest list. Keeping the family farmhouse as their wedding location, all eyes were on the outfit of the bride. A subtle pink Chikankari lehenga designed by Anamika Khanna in silk with zardozi and jaali work was just the eye-catching factor of the bridal look.
Athiya has extremely subtle and beautiful taste in fashion and always makes a style statement with her looks. The designer said, “I wanted to curate something special for the bride that was vibrant keeping the fact that she is going to be the bride, but she was never going to be one for whom everything else in the ceremony takes over. She has a supremely strong character, and I think she astutely knows it. We created an extremely fine piece of Chikankari, as well as jaali ka kaam with precise hints of Zardozi”. It is an old-rose color with a blend of metallic colors on the lehenga. It’s got elegance to it. You can see that there is no element screaming for attention, and still, it looks like it is just so her. The garment is enough to have all eyes upon itself.
If you are opting this look, one thing is for sure you’ll never get bored even in the coming years. Just like her, you can flaunt your look with a heavy necklace, matching earrings, and style statement piece “maang tika”. Rather than wearing a chooda or multiple bangles, Athiya wore a pair of basic Kundan bangles matching her jewelry.

Athiya and Rahul look dreamy in their wedding pictures. For the big day, their pastel outfits were looking just right. The newly married took to Instagram and shared a post together with their fans. Along with the pictures from their wedding, they wrote a beautiful note.
The note read, “In your light, I learn how to love…” Today, with our most loved ones, we got married in the home that’s given us immense joy and serenity. With a heart full of gratitude and love, we seek your blessings on this journey of togetherness.”
