This is Mann’s second marriage. It is believed to be an arranged marriage, as Mann’s mother Harpal Kaur is acquainted with Kaur’s family. Mann’s children from his first marriage: daughter Seerat Kaur Mann (21) and son Dilshan Singh Mann (17) attended his swearing-in ceremony in March. Mann divorced his first wife Inderpreet Kaur in 2015.

Ms. Kaur took to social media to express her excitement over the ceremony. Ahead of the wedding on Thursday, she tweeted a beautiful picture of herself in a blue suit. The photo appears to be from the pre-wedding ceremonies. She wrote, “Din shagna da chadya (the auspicious day is here).” Gurpreet looked like a beautiful ‘Punjabi Kudi’ in the traditional look, flaunting her smile.
Only close relatives were invited to the low-key affair. No minister or other big leaders were invited to the ceremony except Mr. Kejriwal and Raghav Chadha.
