The couple finally tied the knot yesterday (February 18, 2014)

Popular television actor Jay Soni and Pooja Shah wanted to marry on Valentine’s Day February 14, but due to non availability of venues they decided to get hitched on February 18.

“We chose to marry on February 18th as all the venues were booked on 14th ‘coz of Valentine’s Day. My haldi and sangeet were on 16th February.”

The Sasural Genda Phool actor, who is currently seen on Sanskaar Dharohar Apnon Ki has taken eight days off from his busy schedule for his wedding and a small honeymoon in Goa. “Right now we are going to Goa. The beach and honeymoon suite sounds nice. Our official honeymoon will be around April, but the destination is still unplanned.”

The wedding while simple, saw the who’s who of the telly industry. The guest list included Shamin Manan, Vishal Singh, Karan Wahi, Pooja Kanwal, Munisha Khatwani, Prashant Bhatt, Sandeep Sickand, Bhairavi Raichura and Sudhir Pandey.

Jay says that he looks up to his parents and wishes to have a successful marriage like them. “I think every couple has their own charm and happiness. But I look up to my parents as I find them ideal,” said the actor.

In spite of being an arranged marriage, the couple seemed very much in love. We wonder if Jay was nervous on his D-Day. “I feel great and blessed since there is no worry of any obstacle. The love is pure ‘coz we met with the motive to marry. I am glad my mother is happy seeing me finally settled down. I feel blessed after getting married!” Awww… now isn’t that just cute!

BollywoodLife wishes the happy couple a great life ahead.
