In 2016, the internet was filled with lovely stories of celebrity couples getting hitched. From Bollywood celebrities like Bipasha Basu-Karan Singh Grover to Preity Zinta-Gene Goodenough, to TV celebrities like Divyanka Tripathi-Vivek Dahiya and Siddhant Karnick-Megha Gupta and much more, all these couples united in the holy bliss of matrimony.
This time we are talking about Hunar Hale and Mayank Gandhi, who tied the knot on August 28, 2016, in New Delhi. It was a typical Punjabi affair, and the wedding took place in Pahari Wala Gurudwara Sahib, New Delhi. Hunar Hale made for the perfect blushing bride while Mayank Gandhi looked like the dapper, handsome groom standing by her side.
Their marriage was an arranged one, but that doesn’t stop the couple from being head-over-heels in love already! Their pre-wedding photoshoot proved this, with the super-adorable snaps, taken by Israni Photography. All in all, the functions went off smoothly, and both Hunar and Mayank were dressed to impress!
Scroll down future brides, for some serious style inspiration.
Hunar Hale looked like royalty at her engagement. Dressed in a deep and rich red lehenga complemented with dull gold detailing, she looked like the gorgeous bride that she is. Mayank was dressed in a dapper black tux and white shirt combination; his hair brushed in soft waves that framed his handsome face.
The minimalistic jewellery that Hunar opted for was definitely a show stealer. She didn’t go overboard, but wore statement earrings and a couple of bracelets, leaving her neck bare, to bring out the rich detailing of her outfit instead.
We loved how Hunar’s outfit complemented and accentuated Mayank’s black and white ensemble. Neither of them stole the thunder from the other, but in fact, worked towards bringing out the best of the other’s look. The wonderful red and gold colours on Hunar’s outfit go so well against Mayank’s charcoal black tux, don’t you think? So ladies, always make sure that you and your beau have discussed in advance, your outfit details.
Hunar and Mayank’s pre-wedding shoot looked like something out of a blockbuster film. Dressed in their best, the couple posed for pictures with love shining in their eyes. It’s a treat to see them together, even in pictures.
The non-clichéd poses stole the show. The photographer didn’t make them pose in a bunch of clichés. Instead, candid shots and happy moments were captured on camera and that’s what we loved!
Steal the bride’s look! We love the partially off-shoulder blouse and the velvet bodice. Her hair, styled in loose and soft-falling waves down her shoulders, completes the gorgeous look. We’re also in love with the maang teeka!
Hunar’s mehendi ceremony was attended by close friends and family. She looked simply splendid and fresh as a daisy in her lime-green and yellow suit and she happily posed for picture after picture, with her beautiful smile.
We give her full points for the choice of colours on her outfit. A mehendi ceremony is generally a daytime function, and it is important to know what kind of colours to wear in the day. Lime-green and yellow was a perfect combination to wear in the daytime, and we love how the gentle green brings out the colour of her eyes.
Always dress comfortably. No matter what the function is, keep in mind that comfort is the key. If you don’t feel comfortable wearing what you’ve worn, you will never be able to enjoy your own wedding! Hunar was able to be the beaming, happy bride that she was because she dressed in comfortable attire, at each function.
Hunar’s haldi ceremony seemed like a lot of fun! There were smiles and laughter all around and not even once did the bride seem sad or bored. She sat there patiently as she was smeared with the yellow paste by friends and family and she smiled through it all!
Hunar is always comfortable in her skin and is also super-bindaas. She fooled around with family and showered her mother with kisses. It is this playful, caring nature of the bride that truly made her glow during the ceremony! Moreover, we like that she didn’t go overboard with her outfit. As we know, haldi can be a messy ceremony, and there’s no point in getting all dressed up, only to have the outfit ruined within seconds. Hunar’s simple sleeveless tee and no-mess, no-fuss updo was the ideal choice.
We believe that you brides must steal a lesson or two on eye-makeup from Hunar. Even though she wasn’t dressed to the nines, she’d done up her face for sure. We love the delicate liquid liner and mascara on the eyes and touch of blush on her lips. Hunar’s look is simple, ethnic and super-duper gorgeous.
It was a typical Punjabi-style wedding, so the chooda tradition was a must-have! The ceremony took place right before the wedding. This time, Hunar looked like a pretty pink rose and we’re sure no one could take their eyes off her!
Future brides, take a lesson, choice of outfit is super-crucial here!. Her pretty-in-pink look was perfect for the chooda ceremony. The gold prints on her outfit and the gold border on the dupatta, puts a touch of elegance to this ensemble. We also love the turquoise lining on the inside of her dupatta. Don’t you?
We’d say, steal everything! This look is perfect, from top-to-toe. The bright pop of pink on her lips, the hot pink nail-paint and the loosely combed hair, with a side partition. Go low-key on the jewellery, since you will want your chooda to be the focus.
Hunar looked like a vision in her beautiful wedding trousseau. She opted for pastels instead of the quintessential red and we applaud her choice! In her pink-and-mint green ensemble, she looked like she’d just stepped out of the pages of a fairytale book. Her outfit was designed by Archana Kochhar. What’s more, her beau complemented her in his white kurta set, with a dark pink pagdi and a sheer pastel pink dupatta, to match his glowing bride.
The gorgeous pink flowers stitched all over her outfit, was the best part of her look. It made her look young, delicate and beautiful. The fact that Mayank had coordinated his outfit to match with Hunar’s, gives them brownie points! You can’t deny how adorable they look together.
Hunar Hale can literally give a master class on how NOT to go overboard with your makeup! During every ceremony, her makeup was minimal and yet, just perfect. She applied just a dusting of gold eye-shadow, some mascara and painted her lips to match her outfit, in shades of pastel pink. We love how she let the jewellery speak more than the make-up.
Well ladies, we think you have a lot of style and beauty tips to pick up from Hunar, for your own weddings! She truly raised the bar regarding dressing right for every function. We’d love it if you would let us know which look you loved the most, in the comments below.
