The princess brides

The princess brides

This has been the year of celebrity weddings, the most recent one being the wedding of Virat and Anushka. A big congratulations to both of them and my best wishes for a happy married life.

An Indian wedding is all about flamboyant colours, elaborate rituals, lavish spreads, boisterous music, gorgeous locales and the complete family coming together in a celebratory mode. The preparation and excitement increases when a celebrity gets married. Everything from the location to what's on the menu to who all are on the guest list is followed closely by the media and fans. And of course, the outfits are the cynosure of all eyes!

Known for setting trends, what a celebrity wears for his/her wedding always becomes the talk of the town. Most celebrities are known to go to their favourite designer to create that dream outfit which would make them look their best.

Dressing up a popular face, who has already been seen in many beautiful avatars in their reel life, for their real life wedding, is a job with lot of pressure.  There are high expectations, not only from the bride who wants to look her best on the most special occasion of her life, but also from everybody else out there who are eagerly waiting for minute by minute updates.
However, it is a beautiful experience to be a part of such an important occasion of their journey. And when you see that smile on the face of the bride and receive appreciations for your creation, you feel content and satisfied.  

My recent experience with celebrity bride Aashka Goradia was an amazing one. Aashka and my friendship go a long way back and it was lovely to design a beautiful lehenga for her 'sangeet'. The lehenga captured their love story in its own unique way. It was specifically designed in blue colour as that is the colour of the eyes of Brent, Aashka's husband. It was the colour of his eyes that Aashka noticed about him the first time they met. She looked absolutely gorgeous in the outfit and she herself was very happy and satisfied, which made all the efforts worthwhile.

My other dear friend Geeta Basra's wedding was also a memorable one for me. I was part of each and every ritual and had designed the outfits for both Geeta and Bhajji for their wedding, including the mehendi and reception.
Geeta, though from London, wanted everything traditional and Indian. Both Geeta and Bhajji were very clear about what they wanted and it was lovely to dress them up on their D-day.

That said, every girl is the celebrity on her special day and I am privileged to be a part of this memorable moment of many brides.
