Shahnawaz Sheikh met Devoleena for the first time at a gym in Mumbai. They dated each other for around 3 years and then tied the knot in a private ceremony in Lonavala on 14 December 2022. Before taking the nuptials, the couple had a court marriage in Mumbai. The pre-wedding rituals were held a day before and were attended by the couple’s family members and close friends. During a media conversation, while talking about their pre-wedding rituals, a close friend of the couple said,
They had a Haldi ceremony last night where just family members and really close friends were invited. After the court marriage, they went to Lonavala to spend time with the family.”

The source further revealed that the wedding was kept low-key because Shahnawaz and his family didn’t want it to be a grand affair. He said,
Her boyfriend and his family are really simple, so they didn’t want a marriage in the public eye, which is the reason it was so hush-hush. It was a simple wedding, just like Devoleena and her partner envisioned. They were planning to get hitched for a long time, and it was just getting delayed. They have been planning to take their relationship to the next level for almost two years now. And finally took the leap, and are very happy.”
While Devoleena opted for a red embroidered net saree paired with a heavy red dupatta as her veil, Shahnawaz chose a black suit for their wedding.
