Sania Mirza and Shoaib Malik's Marriage's Pictures

Indian tennis star Sania Mirza married to Pakistani cricket player Shoaib Malik on Monday, after a romantic affair that saw the groom forced to get a messy divorce from his first wife days before the wedding.

Sania and Shoaib pose for a picture with their relatives during the wedding ceremony at a five-star hotel Taj Krishna around 1:00 p.m. as per Muslim religious traditions.

The nikah(marriage) was done in the presence of a very selected gathering comprising only the family members of the Sania Mirza and Shoaib Malik.

There was a very high drama at Sania mirza's residence as the celebrity left her posh residence at Jubilee Hills accompanied by her parents, Imran Mirza and Naseema Mirza, and sister Anam Mirza.

A close relative of the Mirzas described the ceremony, which lasted for ten minutes as a very simple affair. Family members of Sania mirza and close relatives of shoaib Malik, including his sisters and brothers-in-law attended the wedding function.

Families settled to go ahead with the nikah ahead of the earlier declared wedding date of April 15. Sources said the families steered clear of all possible legal hurdles before going ahead with the ceremony by seeking necessary counsel.
