Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan signed the marriage registry yesterday afternoon and sealed it with an exchange of vows at the Taj Mahal Palace hotel in Mumbai.
The bride wore a traditional gharara belonging to her mother-in-law and made up-to-date for the occasion. She later changed into a champagne outfit by Manish Malhotra. The groom wore a brocade achkan by designer Raghavendra Rathore.
Close friend and designer Manish Malhotra and his team helped Kareena get ready for her big night. Yesterday afternoon, he tweeted:
"So me and my team is here to get kareena dress as a bride :-)"
"First we style and fit the vintage traditional outfit on kareena:-)" "After the vows for the wedding party change into outfit made by me :-)"
The reception was a grander affair than the previous, more private, functions. Guests included Shah Rukh Khan and wife Gauri and cousin Ranbir Kapoor. Friends like Amrita Arora, Malaika Arora Khan and Manish Malhotra have been at most of the functions so far.
The registered marriage took place at Saif's Bandra apartment this afternoon with his mother Sharmila Tagore and Kareena's parents Randhir and Babita Kapoor acting as witnesses.Saif Kareena wedding: They're officially married

Kareena, 32, and Saif, 42, have been dating for the last five years. Saif was previously married to actress Amrita Singh with whom he has a daughter and a son. Wedding celebrations, including the sangeet and mehendi, have been kept private, restricted to a small number of family and close friends only. But the revelry is not over yet. Two post-wedding functions are scheduled - a family affair at Pataudi Palace and a reception in Delhi.
