Actor Yami Gautam surprised fans with her announcement that she had married her Uri: The Surgical Strike director Aditya Dhar. The couple tied the knot in an intimate ceremony on Friday (June 4), with only their ‘immediate family’ in attendance. Now, their wedding planner Gitesh Sharma has shared details of the low-key affair.
The wedding took place at Yami’s farmhouse in Mandi, Himachal Pradesh, over two days. Gitesh said that he was contacted by her father just one day prior to the wedding festivities.
“Yami’s father contacted us a day before their wedding ceremonies [sangeet and mehndi] began. The Gautams brought their own family pandit [priest] from Bilaspur or Hamirpur for the rituals,” he told Mid-Day.
Gitesh shared details of Yami and Aditya’s small outdoor wedding. “They were clear that they didn’t want a larger-than-life, glamorous wedding. Instead, they wanted the ceremonies to be conducted in a natural and traditional way, as it happens in their hometowns. They got married in front of a deodhar tree. The mandap was decorated with marigold flowers and banana leaves, with a gold-and-white theme running across the décor. After the wedding, there was a small reception in the evening with family members. The mehndi was held in the courtyard,” he said. The wedding was followed by a traditional lunch of Mandi dham.
