Ravindra Jadeja and Rivaba Solanki look blissed out for good reason. They got engaged a week back at Jadeja’s own restaurant, Jaddus Food Field. Fanfare and high-profile invitations aside, the best moment was when Rivaba was hailed as Lady Luck for the cricketer’s career. Meanwhile, Irfan Pathan did it traditionally and wedded Safa in Mecca. Love is clearly in the air this February!

Beginning Under A Veil If this looks like a sudden eruption of black & white amidst colour, that’s how Asin and Rahul Sharma would have liked it after their church wedding. It featured music group Elohim Worship and the couple’s close friend, Akshay.

In Their Shared Genes They tore into each other before and during the Bihar polls. In the end, one ate humble pie. But Modi and Laloo shared only sweets and bonhomie at the wedding of Tej Pratap Yadav and Raj Laxmi, Laloo’s daughter. Politics is made of this.

The Light In The Affair It was a party for newyweds Harbhajan-Geeta Basra and Rohit Sharma-Ritika Sajdeh. It was thrown by Mukesh Ambani, and had a healthy footfall from Bollywood. Yet the cutest and brightest of ’em all was Ziva, shown around by dad Dhoni and mum Sakshi.

Happiness, and Red Roses, For Them The occasion: Union minister Arun Jaitley’s daughter Sonali’s wedding with businessman-lawyer Jaish Bakshi. The president and PM were there. So were SRK and Mika.

Off-Screen Idols The rosy background shows this up as a glam wedding. The foreground leaves no doubt—Jaya Prada and Sridevi (and Mulayam and Amar Singh), old riv­als, meet at the wedding of the former’s son, Siddharth, in Hyderabad.

Couture Hitch The last few years in the Indian fashion scene saw the rise, then the Bollywoo­d­ised popularity, of desig­ner Masaba Gupta, duly spl­­a­­s­­hed in Page 3 shots. At her wedding reception with film producer Madhu Man­tena, filmy friends like Kangana, Alia and Shahid made a fashionable look-in.

Rick’s The Cafe Will Bhajji and Geeta Basra pedal away in a rickshaw? The flowery three-wheeler, rigged up for the duo’s sangeet (they are to marry on October 29), points to Harbhajan’s tasste in kitsch. But this one can safely say: that Bollywood luck has finally shone on the spinner so out of favour in recent years. His decent performance against the Proteas proves that.

The American ambassador in Denmark Rufus Gifford, right, waves next to his partner Stephen DeVincent after they got married at Copenhagen City Hall in Copenhagen. The U.S. ambassador to Denmark has married his partner in the Scandinavian country that became the first nation to allow gay couples to formalize their unions in 1989. Rufus Gifford, the U.S. envoy since September 2013, is a strong gay rights advocate and often appears with Stephen DeVincent, a 56-year-old veterinarian, at his side. The two were married at the Copenhagen City Hall. Gifford, a 41-year-old Boston native, wrote on Twitter: "26 yrs ago the site of 1st legal gay unions in the world. Humbled and emotional."

Down the Aisle Come the Players They've been engaged for so long that we'd forgotten about it, so pictures of Din­esh Karthik and Dipika Pallikal's Christian wedding in Chennai—do those sparklers sting?—seems like a surprise.

A Long Walk Home Do filmstars with a string of high-profile girlfriends always marry quiet little hom­e­bodies? Bollywood's Shahid Kapoor's marriage to Mira Rajput, a 21-year-old English grad in a private ceremony in Gurgaon, certainly lends credence to that theory. And she is said to be shy (a useful counterpoise). Let's wish them good luck.

A procession of Koothandavar or Aravan, a warrior god in the Mahabharata. Doomed to die in battle, he begged to enjoy marital bliss before his end. God Krishna fulfilled his wish and turned into a Mohini (transgender) to wed Aravan; after a night of wedded bliss, Aravan dies in battle, leaving Mohini widowed. The legend is played out in an annual carnival; homosexuals play Aravan and transgenders turn Mohini.
