You haven’t seen extravagant until you’ve seen the glamorous Indian Wedding of fashion influencer and model Diipa Khosla.
Diipa and Oleg’s Three day Wedding Celebration began with one of the many exciting prewedding rituals, the Mehendi, where Diipa opted to wear soft pastel colours and old Bollywood style glam hair and makeup.
This was followed by Day Two of the wedding where the ‘Haldi’ ritual took place, which was one of the couples favourite events, otherwise known as a Tumeric Cleansing ceremony! The Haldi is a traditional pre- wedding cleansing ceremony where the Bride and Groom are cleansed with turmeric by family and friends in anticipation of their wedding. The mixture is believed to bless the couple before the wedding, ward off any evil spirits, and give a nice ‘glow’ to the young couple for the big day.
A few hours after the Haldi was the beautifully intimate and emotion-filled ‘Chooda’ ceremony where the Brides maternal family and bridesmaids blessed her with bridal bangles just moments before she officially tied the knot.
After the Chooda ceremony came the ‘Baraat!’ The Baraat is one of the most fun parts of the groom’s traditions, as this is where the craziness begins. Here it is customary for the groom to travel to the Bride’s house, on a decorated horse, accompanied by his family members and friends who are supposed to make a big impression with extravagant dancing and loud singing.
Shortly after, was the official Indian Wedding ceremony and it looked completely magical and emotion filled. When the last ritual of the wedding ceremony was over, the couple gets up to touch the feet of all the elder members in the family and seek their blessings for a happily married life.
And finally, on Day three of the Wedding celebration it was time for the European wedding ceremony, where Diipa said “I do” in the most stunning and magnificent gown custom made by couture designer Ashi Studio.
Be inspired, Fairies!
