Before we talk weddings again, let us give you a recap of their engagement and roka ceremony. Lovey is Punjabi and Koushik is South Indian, and the duo have always equally balanced out the rituals of their respective castes and beautifully maintained it. For example, on March 08, 2018, Lovey and Sasan had exchanged rings in South Indian fashion, and the following day, on March 09, 2018, the couple had a close-knit roka ceremony at a Gurudwara in Bangalore, where they once again officially exchanged rings. Here are two pictures from the two events.
As shared by herself to Bombay Times, Lovey tied the knot with her fiancé, Koushik, yesterday on February 10, 2019. About her wedding, Lovey had shared, “We will have two weddings — a Punjabi shaadi in Amritsar and a South Indian ceremony in Bengaluru. We were planning a destination wedding in Italy, but since my grandparents do not have passports, we decided to change the venue.” Donning herself in peach, Lovey and Koushik looked a million dollars on their D-day! An Instagram story shared by Lovey gives us the very first glimpse of the now ‘Mr and Mrs Koushik’. Also checkout some inside pictures from their mehendi and Anand Karaj ceremony:
Revealing details about her dual wedding with the same portal, Lovey had shared, “My family is from Jammu and we wanted a typical Punjabi wedding. Since wedding ceremonies are not allowed in the Golden Temple in Amritsar, we decided to get married outside and then visit the temple for blessings. I feel that it’s an ideal way to start our new life. The wedding will be held on February 10. We will then go to Bengaluru for the South Indian ceremony.” (Must Read: Palak Jain And Tapasvi Mehta Get Married In Traditional Ceremony, Pics Of Newly-Wedded Couple Inside)
Don’t they look amazing? For those who are still wondering why Lovey and Koushik had two different sets of engagement functions, the Bade Achhe Lagte Hain star had stated, “Yes, last night (March 8, 2018) we did exchange rings after a small pooja according to South Indian rituals. It's a tradition in my in-laws house to celebrate anything auspicious in the aashram first.” Further speaking about a similar ritual held a day later, she had then shared, “This morning (March 9, 2018), our roka happened in a Gurudwara. Tonight, we will host a big function at Bangalore Palace, where we will officially exchange rings." Earlier she had said, "Both Koushik and I believe that we are blessed to celebrate this special day with those less fortunate. Since I am a Punjabi, my family has also planned a ceremony at a Gurudwara later in the day."
For those who don’t know, Koushik was introduced to her by her bhabhi on a WhatsApp group! Yes, Lovey herself had shared in an interview, “It is sort of an arranged-cum-love match. My bhabhi introduced me to Koushik on a common WhatsApp group as she thought he was a perfect match for me." She had further added, “He is a positive and sensible guy. I also get to learn so much from him. Our relationship is growing stronger with every passing day and I feel blessed to have him in my life.”
Do you know, Koushik had no idea that he was talking to a celebrity until he looked up for her on the internet? Revealing details about the same, the Kya Huaa Tera Vaada actress had shared, “He learnt I was an actor only after he looked me up on the internet. He then started watching my show and is now a fan."

Will Lovey continue to work post marriage or devote her time completely as a housewife? The actress had shared, “I plan to continue working after marriage. My future in-laws are progressive and love to watch me on screen. However, apart from acting, I also plan to explore other avenues in the entertainment business." However, in a recent interview, about work, travel and marriage, she had shared, “After Saathiya, I wasn’t getting anything interesting. Now, when I am getting good offers, I have become busy with my trousseau shopping. Even if I am settled in Bengaluru, I will keep coming to Mumbai for work.”
Tonnes of congratulations Lovey and Koushik! We wish them a lifetime of happiness and togetherness.
