By TGB Desk / On December 23rd, 2017

Ah, weddings – especially bridal fashion…can you get enough? We just can’t! We came across this gorgeous bride whose wedding day look (three to be precise) is absolutely stunning.

And trust us, her bridal trousseau is every bride-to-be’s dream. We just fell in love with every outfit she wore in her wedding. It’s an understatement to say that she shimmered on her wedding day. We decided to speak to her to know how she managed to look like a million bucks on her special day and she was more than happy to divulge all the details.

This dreamy wedding was captured by Jeevan from @Jeevan Wedding Arts and the makeup was done brilliantly by @Viji knr. All the sarees were sourced from @Prakash Silks and the reception outfit was by @Studio 149. Engagement lehenga was by Mokshaa and the blouse for Engagement saree was designed by Swaadh. Wedding blouses were designed by Anitha from @Kolam boutique.

Alright, we will let you scroll down and fall in love with her gorgeous outfits and read a little bit about her shopping experience….

From the bride Divya….”Ours is a Classmates-turned-Soulmates love story. We met in high school and then quickly became friends. Even after school, we never lost touch with each other. It helped that we were family friends. Call it luck or destiny, call it what you will, but even our parents felt we would make a good couple. And so everything fell in place and we got married in a beautiful wedding ceremony. It’s hard to believe that it has been 10 years since we first met. It feels like just yesterday!” recalls a visibly emotional new bride Divya Lokesh.

She perks up as we mention about her wedding shopping. “To be honest, my husband planned everything right down to the nitty gritty. You must have seen brides going crazy with wedding shopping. But have you ever seen a groom fretting over what his bride is going to wear for the wedding or the type of makeup for reception? No, right? But my husband (back then, fiance) meticulously planned every single detail and researched months before the actual wedding. He even decided the colour (and the motifs!) of my wedding sarees, long before we even thought about wedding shopping. Can you believe it? And he managed to find all the outfits as per the plan. We usually have back up colours just in case, right? But not in case of my hubby boy. He was just not ready to compromise! We finally found everything (as per his vision) after we made endless visits to the boutiques and jewellery shops.

My husband has only one day off a week and so it was very difficult to visit so many shops. But he never complained. Not even once! In fact, I used to crib as I wanted to rest a little before the wedding,” laughs Divya and adds “But I was very happy with the end result. Just love all my outfits. Not because they are gorgeous (which they are!) but because my husband had lovingly bought them for me. He knows what would suit me better than myself. For the past 6 years, he was the one selecting outfits for me. You can say he had become my shopping-partner long before he became my life-partner! Now, I don’t go shopping alone as I get confused without his expert advice. I think I am extremely lucky to get a husband who doesn’t despise shopping.” Divya smiles as she continues to speak.

We completely agree with Divya. A husband who doesn’t crib about shopping? This man is a dream husband! 

“Viji Knr is wonderful! She has an amazing eye for colour, respectfully listens to your requirements and has a very calm & stress-free attitude. That helps to keep you stress free on your wedding day. She really made me look and feel super gorgeous. She is absolutely fantastic to work with and can’t recommend enough to all the future brides.

I must mention about Jeevan. He is super talented and you can tell he really loves what he does. Having his team do the photography at our wedding was one of the best decisions we made while wedding planning. In fact, he took time out of his busy schedule (which he really didn’t have to do) to edit few more pics for the TGB feature as all my pics have been featured on other websites. He is absolutely professional and the entire wedding party is pleased with his work. If you are planning to hire them, you better act quick before they get booked up!
