The pair married in a farmhouse outside Delhi, in a private ceremony.

Shahid Kapoor married Mira Rajput on Tuesday 7th July, in the most anticipated wedding of the year in Bollywood.

The first photos from the wedding have emerged, after the couple married in a private ceremony at a farm house on the outskirts of Delhi.

It was an extremely understated Gurudwara ceremony, and Kapoor, 34, and Mira, 21, were simply dressed.

Despite his celebrity, Shahid wanted his wedding to be an ordinary occasion.

He said on Tuesday 7th July: “[Mira] is a normal girl and I am a normal guy, and we should treat it like something normal and regular.”

Yet this wedding has been the Bollywood event of the year so far, with fans taking to Twitter to congratulate the newlyweds and sending countless messages wishing them well.

The hashtag #ShahidKiShaadi went straight to the top of the Twitter trends.

It is reported that the couple’s sangeet featured Kapoor’s biggest hit songs, including ‘Dhating Naach’, ‘Tu Mere Agal Bagal Hai’, and ‘Raat Ke Dhai Baje’.

Both Shahid and Mira took to the stage for a special dance performance for guests, and afterwards Shahid gave Mira an adorable kiss.

The wedding day will round off with a big party at The Oberoi Hotel, Gurgaon. It is thought that 500 guests are invited, and the ballroom has been reserved to host the bash.

Whilst some friends and close family are staying at The Oberoi Hotel, many guests are staying at The Trident Hotel next door, where around 50 rooms have been reserved.

It is thought that even The Trident’s grand presidential suite has been reserved, which comes with two bedrooms and its own gym and swimming pool.

After this first celebration, there will also be another party on the 12th July 2015 in Mumbai, where more guests will be invited.

It is expected to be a star studded event, as many of Bollywood’s biggest names come to congratulate Kapoor and Mira.
