Yuvraj Singh and Hazel Keech are just getting married (as we speak) and do you know the interesting story behind this union? Well, guess what! It was not all roses and romance for this couple and they have a pretty filmy love story which has not got a fairy-tale happy ending. Their story was not without it’s trails, you know! Well not many know but Yuvraj had to pursue this stunning model turned actress for over three years before she even said Yes for a coffee date.

Looks like, the Bodyguard actress did not have a great first impression of Yuvi and hence kept avoiding him for over three or more years while he kept pursuing her. Irritated with his pestering she would finally give in and agree to go out on a date with him but then quickly turn off her phone on the decided day and Yuvi would be left high and dry! But the Indian cricketer, determined to win over his firang babe, did not lose hope. No! He added her on Facebook and found a mutual friend. He first asked him to stay away from her and later use this association to get close to Hazel! So, after more than three long years he wore her down and she agreed to go on a date with him. And rest is history.

So, while it is really persuasive of Yuvi, Hazel too has taken a leap of faith by a accepting his marriage proposal. Well, after getting to know each other adequately well, Yuvraj flew to the romantic island of Bali with Hazel and popped the question to her. She readily accepted and here they are, all set to be Mr and Mrs.

They are now getting married at a Fatehpur Sikh gurudwara in Chandigarh and will later host a grand reception in ITC Maurya,Delhi primarily for Yuvi’s friends from the Indian Cricket Team. The couple, will then have an intimate reception in Goa where only close friends are invited. Yesterday, they had a mehendi ceremony in Chandigarh’s Lalit hotel and man, they looked happy and very much in love. Have you checked out all the pictures from the ceremony?

Yuvraj’s mother Shabnam wanted her son to get married before his 35th birthday and hence the ceremony is planned accordingly. His father Yograj Singh has been distant from the whole affair before declaring that he will not be a part of the function. He was also quoted saying, “On December 2, Yuvraj and Hazel will wed according to Hindu rituals. This ceremony is set to take place at a farm house in Goa again where limited guests have been invited for a lunch reception.”
