“Today 2 families become 1!” reads the caption of a photo of Deborah Henry’s hubby, Dr Rajiv Bhanot.
The former Miss Malaysia married her entrepreneur sweetheart over the weekend in a dreamy private wedding ceremony in Udaipur, India. The joyous occasion saw friends and family attending the event.
According to The Star, the 2-day event took place at the stunning location of the Leela Palace and the Oberoi Udaivilas hotels in the western state of Rajasthan. A formal wedding service was followed by a traditional Hindu ceremony and a garden blessing.
The 1.77m tall beauty wore a gorgeous intricate embroidered coral-coloured couture ghagra with a sheer pinkish veil designed by Melinda Looi Couture. Looi stated that peonies was used as the main floral motif for the ensemble. “It took 3 weeks to complete the embroidery. The fabric is pure shantung silk from Spain and the skirt alone weighs more than 10kg!” she said.
Deborah, 31, and Rajiv, 33, only started dating 3 years ago (in 2014), even though the couple first met when Deborah was 16 and they were still in college together. As fate would have it, the duo got reacquainted many years later and became partners in Venuescape.
The star-studded wedding had an impressive guest list including Naza Group joint group executive chairman S.M. Nasarudin and his celebrity TV presenter wife Marion Caunter, former national squash player Mohd Azlan Iskandar and his fashion entrepreneur wife Ung Yiu Lin, actress Sarah Lian, model Kavita Sidhu, and many more.
