Our Indian cricketers seem to be very busy with both their professional and personal lives these days. With the Asia Cup going on, something else too is keeping out cricketers busy. After Rohit Sharma and Yuvraj Singh, another Indian cricketer, Robin Uthappa has tied the knot with his fiancé Sheethal Goutham on March 3, 2016.
Robin is India’s star batsman, and is nicknamed ‘The Walking Assassin’ for his quick way of charging at the bowler. He got engaged to tennis player Sheethal Goutham on November 12, 2015. (Read all about it HERE). And, today in a morning ceremony in Bengaluru got married to her.
It was an intimate ceremony with recently married Irfan Pathan acting as the groom’s best man.
Actress Juhi Chawla took to her social media account to share the pictures from the ceremony.
She captioned them as:
“Robin uthappa and Sheetal .. Now man and wife ...!!congratulatttiioonnss ...!!”
Sheethal looks stunning in a white off-shoulder gown with delicate jewellery and her hair tied up in a bun. What caught our attention was the tattoo on her shoulder. Now, that sure is a cool way to be on your wedding. Robin too looked dapper in a blue three-piece suit with a flower pinned to the lapel. And, the glee on his face surely makes us happy for him and Sheethal.
From the pictures, we can see that the wedding was a Christian ceremony while the setting was a lawn. The venue was the prestigious Taj West End Private Hotel in Bengaluru.
In an earlier interview to Times Of India, Robin and Sheethal had shared their wedding plans. In Robin’s words, he had left all the arrangements of the wedding to Sheethal.
“A wedding is always the girl's dream, so Sheethal's completely free to do what she wants. Since both of us come from different backgrounds, it's going to be an interesting wedding. It will be quite a mix. And it will most likely be in Bengaluru.”
To which, Sheethal said:
“Honestly, right now, I feel like everything's happening so quickly. I'm still digesting the whole engagement. As far as the wedding is concerned, I don't know why, but since I was a child, despite being born into a Hindu family, I always dreamt of wearing a gown for my wedding. So, I think that is finally going to happen, and I am excited about that. I haven't thought about anything else.”
So, Sheethal’s dreams of having a wedding where she is wearing a gown finally got realised.
