Reena & Jaspal’s Real Wedding

Reena and Jaspal met at an Asian lifestyle exhibition and became good friends. They were friends for four years before they started dating. One night after they’d fallen for each other, they returned home from a black tie event celebrating an award Reena had won, when Jaspal proposed to her. After both sets of parents had given their blessing, the wedding planning could begin!

Two Wedding Dresses

Reena visited India with one of her bridesmaids to pick out her wedding outfits. She had an open mind about what she’d wear to her different ceremonies and reception. Reena knew she wanted to wear a traditional Gurjarati white and red outfit for the daytime, so she created a mini scrapbook of ideas, styles and colours she liked, cut out from Asian wedding magazines. This is a great way to have a visual example of exactly what it is you’re looking for.

Whilst searching, the bride to be came across three different dresses that she liked, so the shop combined the different designs together to make a unique one just for Reena. In the evening the bride changed into a cerise pink net sari with a strappy blouse. She accessorised each outfit with crystal costume jewellery.
