Just Married: Saina Nehwal and Parupalli Kashyap share their first picture as husband and wife
Say hello to the beautiful, just married couple! Ace Badminton player Saina Nehwal and long-time boyfriend Parupalli Kashyap tied the knot on 14th December, in Hyderabad. The wedding took place in attendance of close friends and family members. The new bride took to Instagram to share a picture as she called it the 'best match' of her life. We totally agree! Saina was decked in a pastel lehenga with floral motif stitches while the Dulha wore a pink kurta and white churidar.
“We started travelling for bigger tours from 2007-08 onwards. We played tournaments together, trained together and slowly, started paying more attention to each other’s matches. In the competitive world that we live in, it is difficult to get close to someone. But somehow we both found it very easy to talk to each other, talk about our matches. The feeling gradually grew,” Sania had earlier told TOI, describing her relationship with Kashyap, which spans over a decade now.

However, they took their time to tie the knot because they didn't want to divert the attention from their sport which demands undivided time and focus. Both of them were on the same page as far as not rushing things before the Commonwealth Games and the Asian Games was concerned.
In this year's CWG, Saina brought home a gold medal. Kashyap, on the other hand, finished top in the Men’s singles event the 2014 Commonwealth Games. May the new innings at home be just as much happy and fulfilling!
