Congratulations are in order for Australian cricketer Glenn Maxwell! The all-rounder tied the knot with his long-time girlfriend, Vini Raman, an Indian-Australian pharmacist, at Immerse Winery in Victoria’s Yarra Valley in Australia on Friday. The couple, that’s been dating for over two years, shared pictures from their wedding festivities going on in full swing – and there’s more to come!
Maxwell and Raman took to Instagram to give an intimate look inside their private ceremonies. Pictures show that the couple has had a traditional Christian ceremony and are now waiting to execute an Indian wedding.
In a joint post, they announced, “Wifey and Husband. The best is yet to come.” Raman stunned in a gorgeous white beaded lace gown with a short train on the day she said, “I do” to the cricketer. She wore her long hair down and was flanked by a whimsical traditional wedding veil. Standing beside her hand in hand, husband Maxwell looked dapper in a black tuxedo.
Raman also took to her Instagram stories and posted an image of the pair holding hands and showing off their wedding rings. In love, she captioned the adorable photo, “Love is a search for completion and with you I feel complete.” As they wrapped their Christian wedding, the duo made a trip to Melbourne for an Indian ceremony to honour Raman’s Tamil heritage.
On Thursday, the duo posted “a little glimpse” into their “intimate Nalangu/Haldi ceremony” where the two could be seen in bright-coloured Indian attires. Raman looked beautiful in an orange and green banarsi saree with golden embroidery on it. Twinning with the bride, the groom looked handsome as ever in an orange and golden coloured sherwani with matte gold buttons to finish the regal look.
The adorable pictures showed the groom kissing Raman on the forehead and enjoying the event to the fullest.
While we do not know what’s next in their wedding week, Maxwell shared in an interview with NDTV that “there are three events during the week from Monday onwards. It's a bit of a festival for my wedding this year.” All we know is that the celebrations have just begun to mark their big day on March 27, and we are excited to know more!
The duo beefed up the security at their lavish but private ceremony after their wedding card leaked online in February. Maxwell was informed by a former teammate from the Indian Premier League (IPL) that details of his pending nuptials could be seen by millions globally. Later it was found that Indian actor Kasturi Shankar shared private information on social media.
The guest list was limited to only 350 guests. AFL star Brendan Fevola, cricketers Aaron Finch, Shane Watson and Mitch Johnson attended the wedding.
