In the presence of family and friends, cricketer Yuvraj Singh and actress Hazel Keech tied the knot on Wednesday, November 30, in a traditional Sikh marriage ceremony at the Fatehgarh Sahib gurudwara near Chandigarh.
The wedding was an intimate affair with the near and dear ones coming down to bless the couple.
Post the pheras, the newly-married couple was blessed by Braham Gyani Sant Ram Singh. After marrying with Sikh rituals Hazel keech changed her name to Gurubasant Kaur.
Changing the name is not the practice of the Sikh rituals but according to reports Yuvraj’s mother gave the new name to Hazel.
After the ‘Anand Karaj’ ceremony, the couple got the blessings of Dera head Baba Ram Singh. Wedding at the Dera was performed as per Sikh rituals.
Yuvraj’s father and former cricketer-actor Yograj Singh did not attend the wedding ceremony of his son in the dera. Yograj had already said that he would not attend the wedding as he was against marriage being solemnised by a Dera leader, “as he believes in god, not religious leaders.”
