India’s former solicitor general, senior advocate Harish Salve, married a London-based artist on Wednesday thereby beginning a new chapter in his life. The 65-year-old lawyer divorced his wife for 38 years Meenakshi Salve in June 2020.
Harish Salve, who lives in North London, married Caroline Brossard (56) in a church. Reports suggest that the wedding was attended by only 15 guests, as per the rule in London due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
While Brossard looked elegant and beautiful in a white wedding gown, Salve donned a three-piece suit for the ceremony.
As per reports, the couple got married after seeing each other for around a year. They had first met at an art event.
Brossard grew up in the United Kingdom and has an 18-year old daughter. She has a Masters in Fine Arts degree from Chelsea School of Arts, UAL. Salve has two daughters—Saanya and Sakshi—with his former wife Meenakshi.
While talking about the factors that bind the couple even stronger, Salve had earlier said he and Brossard share a passion for art, theatre and classical music.
