Sunayana & Nikhil got married in Jaipur with traditional Rajasthani wedding ceremonies. Their Sangeet function was hosted at the beautiful Nahargarh fort and their wedding was solemnised at Sisodia Rani ka bagh in Jaipur city. It was a gala affair. On the day of the wedding Sunayana got ready at the Shades beauty parlour in Jaipur and looked the gorgeous bride. Here's wishing them both all happiness.
