As a London wedding photographer, I’m lucky to be surrounded by diversity and love to celebrate different cultures. So I was excited to be part of a creative team working to produce a traditional Indian bridal look, with a regal golden theme.
Kiren Modi was our stunning model and she showed off the gorgeous bridal lengha set, covered with intricate gold embroidery, to perfection. The dupatta, featuring a gold lace edging with red piping, was secured over a low bun and it draped beautifully to complete the outfit. Kiren’s understated up-do had a centre parting to showcase a golden double teardrop tikka, complimented by a gold and white passa over her left temple. Her earrings and necklace matched her tikka, with five gold chains fastening the teardrop pendants around her neck, while an additional gold chain attached her large hoop natha or nose ring. White and gold bangles and an ornate kundan and ruby ring finished the look. Shreya Pandya is a really talented bridal hair & makeup artist and she created a look that perfectly balanced all the bridal jewellery. After forming a flawless base, she emphasised Kiren’s eyes using smoky reds and greys with long lashes and a heavy outline so they could hold their own amongst all the jewels!
I really enjoyed working with this talented team and look forward to sharing more Indian bridal images from both weddings and styled shoots soon.
