Naga Chaitanya and Samantha Ruth Prabhu tie the knot: Photos from their Christian wedding
Akkineni Nagarjuna has shared photos of the traditional South Indian ceremony of the wedding of his son Naga Chaitanya, with Samantha Ruth Prabhu
As has been widely reported, Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Naga Chaitanya tied the the knot in a lavish three-day affair in Goa on 6 October. First, a traditional South Indian ceremony was held on 6 October, and the couple will also have a church wedding shortly. Pictures of the first ceremony were recently released by Chaitanya's father, veteran actor Akkineni Nagarjuna.
Samantha Ruth Prabhu shared a few pictures in a white gown designed by Kresha Bajaj, who also created her engagement ensemble.
Akkineni Nagarjuna also shared pictures from the initial parts of the ceremony on social media:

In another picture, we see the bridegroom flanked by Daggubati Venkatesh, who is his maternal uncle and Nagarjuna, his father. Dressed in simple kurta-pyjama, Chaitanya is all smiles for the camera.
The couple's church wedding took place on 7 October, and it looked like it was straight out of a fairy tale. Prabhu donned a light purple gown designed by Kresha Bajaj and Chaitanya complimented his bride in a black tuxedo.
Prabhu and Chaitanya met on the sets of Ye Maaya Chesave in 2010 and started seeing each other to finally get married seven years later. The two plan to spend some time in New York, where they shot for their first film together, after the wedding.
After the three-day extravaganza wraps up in Goa, a lavish reception will be held in Hyderabad.
