On my wedding day, I wore a beautiful pink and light olive green bridal lehenga. A lehenga is one of the traditional indian outfits worn by brides and it consists of a blouse, skirt and scarf (worn over the head, or on the shoulder). It was decorated with crystals, gold and pink sequins, gold thread embroidery and baby pink pearls working. It was bought from Pernia’s pop up store.
My hair was put into a low messy bun with pink flowers. It was also decorated by the traditional maang tikka, and earrings with a chain that hooks into the hair. I decided to wear red and gold jewelry for a contrasting effect, as it matched the glass bangles in my bangle set. My bangles were a mix of rose gold, gold and red bangles with pearl and crystal accents.
I also decided to keep my makeup in tones of pink and gold, with a ombré pink lip and gold eyeshadows. My hair and makeup was done by Mithal in Pietermaritzburg South Africa.
Our venue was at the beautiful Waterwoods in Nottingham road, midlands. We had our family staying over for two nights (the night before, and the night of the wedding). The venue accommodates 34 guests, and we had the rest of the family spread out in hotels along Nottingham road and FortNottingham.
