Wed the Indian Way
This year’s vacation saw me traveling to Sydney to be a bridesmaid at a friend’s wedding. And as you can probably imagine, an Indian wedding in another country (with bridezilla being a fashion girl) can only mean one thing – an effortless alloy of east meets west.
While metallics and mirrorwork were busy bringing bursts of colour to life, traditional brocade, embroidery, kundan and beadwork joined forces with gladiator heels, minaudière clutches and cutting edge bangles to deliver bridal perfection.
And let’s not forget about beauty. Classic Indian maang tikkas were offset by smokey, kohl-lined eyes and neon lips while the glitter manicure proved herself as mehendi’s long-lost protégé.
Here are some of the magical moments in style from the festivities. With a wedding this chic, marital bliss is sure to follow!
Here’s wishing the happy couple a lifetime of joy, harmony and spending the mortgage on shoes!
