I had a beautiful wedding: Celina Jaitley
Jaitley talks about her hush-hush wedding to Peter Haag in an exclusive to TOI
Celina Jaitley got married to her longtime partner Peter Haag on July 23 in a quiet wedding in Austria, as his grandmother is seriously ill and wanted to see them married.
Says Celina, “We had a beautiful court ceremony at a spectacular 1,000-year-old monastery in Austria. Peter selected the venue; It’s one of the oldest monasteries in the world. The court judge came specifically for this grand ceremony and gave a touching sermon, followed by a beautiful champagne lunch.”
Celina says it wasn’t a traditional church wedding. “However, It was definitely magical. We are planning a reception to celebrate this important occasion in our lives. It was an intimate affair attended by very close family members only. Since my parents couldn’t make it due to last minute visa challenges, Peter’s father gave me away during the ceremony.”
What did she wear? “I am Indian and wearing a saree was a personal decision. My dearest friend Rahuul Jashnani flew in this vintage, royalty inspired chiffon saree decorated with gold mukaish especially for the wedding. My Prince Charming and his father went out of their way to make it the most magical moment of my life. I had a beautiful wedding amidst the sunshine of the Austrian mountains and under the high arches of a place that has never had a wedding before. Most importantly, with the right person, my Prince Peter. It was a wedding beyond my wildest dreams,”says Celina.
Talking about her future plans Celina says, “Marriage is the same for me as it is for any other girl. It is just another step towards embracing my womanhood. I have no intentions at all of leaving my work. I will live in Mumbai and travel between Dubai (where Peter works in the hospitality industry) and Mumbai.”
