Aishwarya and Abhishek: Honeymoon in Tahiti
02nd May 2007 
Newly wed couple Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan are honeymooning apparently in Tahiti after passing through New Zealand over the weekend.
On arrival at Auckland, Ash and Abhishek reportedly disembarked using a separate entrance from other business class passengers for their onward journey to Tahiti. They did not exit the Auckland airport. 

Reports add that Ash and Abhishek were escorted out of a Singapore Airlines flight through a separate entrance, which separated them from the other business class passengers, on their arrival in Auckland. Later they headed towards Tahiti. 

The Singapore Airlines staffer requested a female passenger who was on the same flight as Ash and Abhi, to give up her front-row business class seat so that a 'young honeymoon celebrity couple' and their two security personnel could sit together

Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan were married
Cream of Bollywood at heartthrobs' wedding NEW DELHI: Bollywood stars Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan were married Friday in traditional Hindu ceremony, capping three days of celebrations for Indian cinema's hottest couple. Bollywood, where marriage is an oft-scripted theme, witnessed two of its leading actors, Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai, marry yesterday, with a Bollywood actor calling it a ‘royal wedding’ between a ‘prince of acting’ and the ‘princess of beauty’. Seven years after they first appeared together in a movie in 2000, actors Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai were solemnised their much-hyped marriage yesterday evening in Mumbai in a ceremony at Bachchan’s up-market bungalow.
Fewer than 100 guests had been invited, most of them the cream of Bollywood. Not present was Sonia Gandhi, who had once been was close to the Bachchans in the late 80s but fell out with them over politics. Hundreds of police and security guards kept out gatecrashers. 

People began gathering at the Bachchans' residence two days ago. Some came bearing boxes of sweets and said they wanted to bless the couple. Other fans slept on the pavement to catch a glimpse of their favourite stars who dropped by to offer congratulations.
“It was a beautiful wedding. Abhishek is the prince of acting nowadays and Aishwarya as we all know is the princess of beauty,” Anil Kapoor, a leading Bollywood actor told. The wedding, one of the most talked about events of the year, will be a north Indian style ceremony with the duo exchanging garlands at around 6 pm
The wedding was carried out according to Hindu customs and rituals and the ceremony, starting with a procession of cars and a bus carrying invited guests and family members to the Bachchan residence.

It was every bit the grand filmy wedding with colour, confusion and crowds as Abhishek Bachchan, astride a horse, wearing an off-white sherwani and a white turban bedecked with flowers, arrived on a hot evening to wed Aishwarya Rai.
Bollywood’s power couple finally tied the knot in a grand ceremony that held much of the nation in thrall - never mind if the only details of the closely guarded event that filtered out were grainy zoom shots from TV cameras stationed across the road.
Aishwarya reached the Bachchans’ Juhu residence Prateeksha in a silver Mercedes decorated with flowers along with her mother and brother. 
Tight security has been put in place for the function which is expected to go on till late tonight. Around 1,000 policemen will be patrolling areas around 'Jalsa' and 'Prateeksha' in addition to the private security guards hired by the Bachchans.

At almost the same time, the barat left the other Bachchan bungalow Jalsa nearby, with a visibly anxious Amitabh Bachchan, complete with a saffron turban, ushering his guests into the waiting Volvo buses that would take them to the wedding venue. 
His face covered with a sehra of white flowers, Abhishek did a small jig before getting off the bus and waving cheerily and then getting on to his horse again at Prateeksha. 

While photographers scrambled to train their cameras at the goings-on, curious stargazers climbed up trees, railings and even hoardings to get a first-hand view. 
Amid the sea of saffron turbans sported by the baratis, several close friends like yesteryear actor Danny Denzongpa, industrialist Anil Ambani and director Goldie Behl could be seen.
The Bollywood celebrities who arrived to bless the couple also included Sonali Bendre, Preity Zinta, Karan Johar, Ajay Devgan and Kajol.
With so many high-profile guests, including Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav and Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh, at least 1,000 security personnel swarmed both the flower bedecked Bachchan homes. The road outside Prateeksha was blocked.
The wedding was the climax of three-day festivities that included a sangeet and a mehndi ceremony that were equally secretive. 
The buzz around the Abhi-Ash marriage started last year and had been steadily getting louder even though the Bachchans never announced it officially because they wanted to keep it a private affair. 
TV shots and newspaper pictures of guests, who kept floating in and out of their house from Wednesday, were the only proof that the big fat Indian wedding was finally taking place.

Both the Bachchan residences were turned into fortresses and for the uninvited, getting in was next to impossible. 
The Bachchans not only took care of their own privacy, they were thoughtful enough not to disturb their neighbours - the lawns at the venue were covered with soundproofed, air-conditioned tents. 
Members of the film fraternity who made it to the guest list showed co-operation towards the first family of Bollywood - none of the invitees breathed out a single detail about the wedding.
Police had to use batons to control the crowd, who broke through barriers and climbed trees on Friday to try to catch a glimpse of the couple.
