The pristine beauty Dia Mirza was born in the princely state of Hyderabad. Her father was German while her mother is Bengali. Her parents separated when she was just four. However, she uses the last name of her step-father, Ahmed Mirza. Adding to the diversity in her life, Sahil Sangha lives in Delhi and is a Sikh by religion. With completely dissimilar upbringings and diverse faiths, they are the epitome of a love which knows no boundaries.
And when it came to wedding, the couple chose to opt for the simplistic but authentic Arya Samaj rituals and ceremony. Dia Mirza was quoted as saying:
“I am very happy. It was a beautiful Arya Samaj ceremony. The vows were explained to us. It was wonderful because it was good to be conscious of what you are going through, and what are the vows you are exchanging. It was a dream wedding.”
Dia is one of the most beautiful actresses that Bollywood has ever had, and anyone can fall in love with her innocent charm. Sahil Sangha said in one interview:
“What I love the most about her is that in one word, she is pure. She is very giving and all heart, which is also a problem as then you need to take care of your heart. She lights up a room as soon as she walks in.”
The two first met when Sahil went to Dia’s house for narrating the script of a film. Although they knew each other since 2009, but Sahil proposed Dia in 2014 when they were in New York to attend an award function. He went on his knees and presented the ring to her in the middle of the Brooklyn Bridge. Dia accepted this heart-warming proposal, and the couple was applauded with cheers by all tourists present there.

The couple had a four-day long celebration, where they had a lot of pre-wedding as well as wedding functions. All the events took place at a Delhi farmhouse.
Dia sported a beautiful sunshine anarkali designed by the ace designer Ritu Kumar on her mehendi function. The yellow anarkali was perfectly matched by a fuchsia dupatta with beautiful motifs and gota patti. Sahil looked no less with a contrast maroon outfit.
Together, they shined through the ceremony. While Dia happily posed for the cameras with her mehendi clad hands, she was quick to quote that:
“Even my mehendi is not the typical heavy look, it is just a simple small design. That is because I am a very unconventional bride.”
This ceremony was attended by only a few close friends and relatives.
