Photos: Newlywed Dia Mirza clicked at Mumbai airport

Newly married actress Dia Mirza spotted at Mumbai airport today. She is heading to New Delhi for work. She was clicked while making her way to the airport. It’s been only four days Dia Mirza got married to boyfriend Vaibhav Rekhi and she got into work mode.

Dia can be seen wearing a blue-hued Kurti paired with chikankari palazzo pants. The actress has opted for stylish sunglasses and blue handbag. She has tied her hair neatly and can be seen wearing a white face mask.

Dia Mirza and Vaibhav Rekhi’s wedding was conducted by a woman priest. The ‘Thappad’ actress skipped the traditional ‘Bidaai’ and ‘Kanyadaan’ ceremony.

Dia, who is an environmental activist wrote about her wedding, “We are so proud to have been able to organise a completely sustainable ceremony…,” the newlywed had shared in an Instagram post.

The actress shared a picture of her wedding with Viabhav and wrote, The garden where I have spent every morning for the past 19 years was an absolutely magical setting and the most intimate and perfect space for our simple and soulful ceremony! We are so proud to have been able to organise a completely sustainable ceremony without plastics or any waste. The materials used for the minimal decor we went for were completely biodegradable and natural.

The highest point for us was the Vedic ceremony conducted by a woman priest! I had never seen a woman performing a wedding ceremony until I attended my childhood friend Ananya’s wedding a few years ago. Ananya’s wedding gift to Vaibhav and me was to bring Sheela Atta who is her aunt and also a priestess, to perform the ceremony for us. She also painstakingly went through several hours of training to imbibe the essence of the scriptures so that she could assist Sheela Atta and translate the shlokas! It was such a privilege and a joy to be married this way! We do hope with all our heart that many more couples make this choice. For it is a woman's soul that contains love, wonder, benediction, magical energy, tenderness and deep empathy for all that lives. It is time for women to own their own agency, their divinity, their power and to redefine what is old and birth what is new. As Charles Bukowski said, "there is no lie in their fire." So what can be more uplifting and empowering than to see the sacred fire within a woman's heart and soul taking centre stage at a wedding? I am still overwhelmed by the magic of this one moment.

Also, we said NO to ‘Kanyadaan’ and ‘Bidaai’ change begins with choice doesn’t it?
