Along with the mesmerising pictures, Alia had written:
"Today, surrounded by our family and friends, at home … in our favourite spot - the balcony we’ve spent the last 5 years of our relationship - we got married. With so much already behind us, we can’t wait to build more memories together … memories that are full of love, laughter, comfortable silences, movie nights, silly fights, wine delights and Chinese bites. Thank you for all the love and light during this very momentous time in our lives. It has made this moment all the more special. Love."
A source close to the just-married couple, Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt opened up about the expensive wedding gifts given to the groom and the bride, in an interview with the Hindustan Times.
