This post is in celebration of an event that took place at the Novotel in Hammersmith, November 16th & 17th 2019.
An event showcasing many components of bridal attire with vendors from all over the UK. Everything you could ever wish for in order to plan your perfect Indian, or Indian style wedding.
There were several stands displaying traditional Indian bridal jewellery dress, with models showcasing the various styles. Please see the images I shot for examples of how a Maang Tikka, a Rani Haar, Chokers, Bangles and Earrings were worn.
Sadly I did not spot any hand or foot harnesses worn.
There was one vendor that for me truly stood out. A luxury brand called IJAAZAT.
They do high end custom and bespoke offerings to both women and men, of some of the finest Indian wedding clothing I have ever seen. I was particularly excited by a specific garment. A gentlemen’s wedding dress, or (Kurta), with impressive tailoring, elegant silhouette and exceptional beading and appliqué work. An object of much desire and, one to add to my ever growing list of most coveted.
This garment for me represented everything it is meant to symbolise. Fineries for Indian Royalty.
