Navi married her husband Rajan, her neighbor for several years, at a beautiful Canadian wedding. Their bond started forming naturally over the years, and they decided to take the plunge when they realized what they had was more than friendship. For their wedding, the couple wore traditional, statement-worthy, and unique outfits. Starting from the mehendi where the bride chose a traditional salwar from Ali Xeeshan in a gorgeous tangerine orange color. The pure raw silk outfit was embellished with intricate zardozi work and a net dupatta. Navi paired the suit set with a long braid – a nod to her Punjabi heritage, nude makeup look, and chunky jewelry pieces including a paasa.
After the mehendi, the bride and groom picked stunning outfits from designers Rimple & Harpreet and Punit Arora respectively. The bride’s red bridal lehenga came in chanderi silk and was meticulously hand-embroidered with peacocks, divine dancers, lotus blossoms, and other traditional motifs. The handwork used traditional Indian techniques like kasab, resham, nakshi, sequins, and pearls, and the dupattas represented our eternal heritage as well. To complement her gorgeous lehenga, the bride opted for a simple choker necklace set and a sheeshpatti. We loved her full-length lehenga blouse design which she elevated with a simple red bridal bangle design. Beauty-wise, she kept it simple, dewy, and statement eyes with full lashes.
The groom’s outfit was customized by Punit Arora. He hand-sketched the details and provided swatches of dyed colors and embroidery patches before the couple could finalize the design. The final design was eye-catching and absolutely debonair. The Anarkali sherwani came in golden color and was paired with double dupattas. One was attached to a waist belt, and the other one was left loose for customization. With one shawl dupatta in red, it served as the perfect complement to the bride’s outfit hue. The groom also wore a traditional red turban to elevate the gorgeous coordination of the bride & groom’s outfit.
For the reception, the bride chose a gorgeous white Martina Liana bridal gown in a body-tugging style with a huge train. It featured formal baroque lace detailing, encrusted beading, and floral designs with shimmer sequins. The sleeves added a glamorous touch while the open back added a sexy appeal to the outfit. For her makeup and hair, she opted for a low bun with tendrils on both sides for a romantic touch and dewy makeup perfect for a formal reception. The groom, on the other hand, wore a tux with a bow tie and looked quite stylish for their festivities.
