While growing up, every girl must have dreamt about how her wedding day would turn out. A bride wants to look the best for herself and her groom on her wedding day. She plans everything from the perfect outfit to coordinated jewellery, makeup and everything to give justice to the day of her dreams.
Amidst all these preparations, a sense of nervousness comes along because a woman's life changes completely after her wedding. But that doesn't restrain a bride from looking the best of the best. Every bride-to-be thinks something out of the box to create something special. Be it replacing mathapatti with Sispatti or wearing three-tier kaleera instead of the regular ones.
Let's meet our bride, Sonakshi Kapoor, who had tied the knot with the love of her life, Vishesh Kaushik. She had looked absolutely gorgeous in her wedding outfit. They decided to have a destination wedding in Solan, Himachal Pradesh. The misty mountains, the lush greenery, and the beautiful scenic background enhanced the colour of their wedding pictures.
The bride had chosen a gorgeous smokey gold and champagne coloured heavily embellished lehenga with resham, zardozi, crystals, sequins, pearls, and semi-precious stones. It is intricately designed with floral motifs and geometric patterns are embroidered all over it by the designer duo, Rimple and Harpreet. The bride had paired the skirt with a matching off-shoulder blouse with crystal fringes, a sheer dupatta, and an embroidered lacy veil.
She had opted for kundan jewellery to go with her outfit. She had worn a broad choker with jhumkas, and instead of mathapatti, she had chosen a kundan sispatti which is worn over her head. For the unversed, sispatti is a Rajasthani jewellery. Sonakshi had donned a big nathni with this, and to complete the look, she picked a three-tier kaleera.
For makeup, she wanted to enhance her eyes. That's why she had opted for dark smokey eyes, a soft pastel pink lipstick and a pink bindi added the necessary charm to her golden ensemble. She looked like a princess, and we couldn't take our eyes off her!
But, wait for the dulha, please. Here comes the groom of Sonakshi's dreams, looking dapper in an off-white bandhgala sherwani to complement his would-be-wife's beauty. He had paired the sherwani set with a heavily embroidered doshala, pagdi, and kundan beaded five-tier statement neckpiece. The sherwani was also embellished with crystals and resham on the hand-cuffs and the collar part. For shoes, he had chosen juttis to match with the outfit. He had looked nothing less than an Indian prince. It's a perfect match, made in heaven.
Sonakshi had opted for a fuchsia pink salwar suit for her mehendi ceremony. She looked absolutely gorgeous in the outfit that she had paired with a kundan choker and earring set, but what grabbed our attention is the maang teeka and the beautifully ornamented braid. She had opted for a subtle makeover for her mehendi. Soft pink eye-shadow and eyeliner, rosy cheeks, orange bindi, and pastel pink lip shade, made her look sweet, simple yet elegant, and royal.
For the pre-wedding cocktail party, the duo had set the place on fire with their sassy outfits and 'kadak' couple goals. Sonakshi and Vishesh run a contemporary architecture and design studio together, and they wanted to reflect their professional life's elements on their wedding day. Sonakshi had chosen a black sleeveless off-shoulder blouse and a satin-metallic finish saree, whose pallu had red metallic shiny pleats. She had opted for a pair of strappy stilettos for shoes. She had looked like a sparkling star in the night.
She had completed her look with a sleek diamond and emerald jewellery set (a three-tier choker, a pair of earrings, a bracelet, and a beautiful finger-ring). For makeup, she had opted for sharp winged eyeliner, toned cheekbones, and bright red lips. Sonakshi had neatly side-parted her hair and made a low ponytail which she had accessorised with beaded pearls and jewels.
Vishesh had put his best foot forward to look as dashing as he could. He had complimented his wife's attire with a black tuxedo that had a metallic finish on the coat. He had paired it with a crisp white shirt and a sweet black bow. He had gelled up his hair which made him look smarter and for shoes, the groom had chosen black leather Loafers.
Amidst all the look books, what really caught our eyeballs, was their happiness and their unfiltered laughter in every picture. Every picture from the cocktail party proved how much the couple is in love with each other. They were dancing, laughing, enjoying every moment of their special day. Their choice of outfits tells a lot about them that how particular they are. As architects and designers, the couple wanted to have something architectural and sculptural on modern lines but also wanted to depict their inner traditional roots. Click from any angle, this couple is just too picture-perfect!
We loved how the bride, Sonakshi Kapoor balanced her professional life and traditional origin. Her choice of sispatti for wedding and metallic saree for cocktail party, says a lot about her.
