Pre-wedding ceremonies were held at a private hotel here Wednesday attended by the close relatives of Sreesanth and the bride Bhuveneshwari Kumari, a jewellery designer by profession. She arrived along with her family from Rajasthan on 8 December.

The couple has been going steady for the past few years and she stood by him in times of crisis when he was jailed following a spot-fixing scandal which took place during the last edition of the Indian Premier League.

The couple will go to Sreesanth's ancestral home in Kothamangalam in Ernakulam district after the wedding, followed by a reception in Kochi on Thursday
