Weddings are all beautiful. With the ceremonies, rituals, vows and most importantly the dreams that follow ahead. But what makes Indian weddings the most glorious of all the weddings across the globe is the pretty and coy bride in her colorful rich ensemble. The bride and the groom certainly provide an eyeful vision to the onlookers.


The pious ceremony begins with brightening the bride with a haldi paste. This is a fun-filled ritual. On one hand the bride is worried that extreme tint of yellow can mar her entire look, whereas the aunts and bhabhis are in no mood to let the bride go without having dunked her in a haldi paste. There is no way that you would want to miss capturing the bride now.

The bride mostly wears colours such as yellows and oranges as a haldi bridal wear. What to wear for haldi is one thing that must be given a thorough thought as the strong color might leave behind tough stains on the clothes.


Bridal Mehendi

The next pic that sure deserves a place in your album to be preserved till eternity is a flash into her intricate mehendi. The mehendi is an integral part of the bride’s make up in almost all Indian cultures. The idea is to take a close up of the Mehendi and leave the bride’s face or body out of focus.

A mehendi night is filled with henna, music, dance, dhol and lots of fun. For a mehendi night, to stick to the theme, the bride generally wears a green lehenga, saree, dress, etc.


Bridal Make-up

As I mentioned the beauty of a Hindu bride is a heaven for the eyes. You could stare at her for the entire day and still not get tired of it. So you need to click a few pics while she gets all decked up. This is how the magic is created.

Never disturb the bride and the makeup professional while the makeup gets done. Both need to focus on the trending Bridal makeup. The bride has to make sure, she gets exactly what makeup she wants on her wedding day.


The Coy Bride

What makes the Hindu bride different from brides all over the world is her coyness. So ask her to pose in her unadulterated bashful smile and you have a keepsake created.


Bride and Bridesmaids

Time of the besties to take over the focus. Yes, get all those pretty besties, and let them make their favorite pose. The one they have tried and tested over the years, just that now the attire and venue is totally different.
