After their hush-hush, big Bollywood wedding last week at Six Senses Fort Barwara in Rajashthan on December 9, Vicky Kaushal and Katrina Kaif aka VicKat, have been sharing inside photos from their pre-wedding and wedding festivities. If the happy pictures of the newly-wed actor Katrina Kaif are anything to go by, there are plenty of reasons for brides-to-be to note down and bookmark the gorgeous looks for their pre-wedding festivities.
Scroll down to take a closer look at the outfit details for all the beauty and fashion inspo you need this wedding season.
Just like her wedding outfit, for her haldi too, Katrina opted for a Sabyasachi lehenga, only this time she ditched the classic yellow for an unconventional ivory Sabyasachi ensemble. Styled by celeb stylist Anaita Shroff Adajania, Katrina looked ethereal in this stunning lehenga that featured intricate gota and tilla embroidery and gold sequin details.
It was accompanied by a V-neck blouse in a similar pattern, a sheer organza dupatta, and floral jewellery made using jasmine flowers.
Keeping the look fresh and fuss-free, Katrina accessorised the outfit with white floral jewellery, au natural makeup, and wavy tresses. We agree with her makeup artist Daniel Bauer who gives a nod to the smudged look for the haldi ceremony. If you notice closely, in some images, you’ll also see the couple draped in matching rani pink dupatta for the rituals. What we especially like are the beautifulfloral jhumkas, necklace and bangles by Floral Art & Design Studio that add a charming romantic and fresh touch to the haldi look.
The mehendi ceremony images shared by Katrina are a riot of dance and colours that reveal all the fun from the colourful mehendi ceremony. Sharing the photos, on their social media platforms, they wrote, "Mehendi Taa Sajdi Je Nache Saara Tabbar! (sic)." The happy bride twinned with her groom in a multi-coloured matka silk lehenga set in the shades – pink, green, gold, yellow and orange. It was inspired by India’s regional folklore, crafts, and nomadic culture, as per her Sabyasachi's Instagram post.
The lehenga design was enhanced with hand-fringed embellishments, brass sequins, and a heavily embroidered border. The highlight of the mehendi outfit was the patchwork blouse with a plunging V neckline, and a chic organza dupatta.
Katrina paired her multi-hued lehenga with an ornate necklace, earrings and a maang tikka. The necklace was a Navratna-inspired jewellery piece from Sabyasachi Heritage Jewellery that's crafted in 18k gold and decorated with uncut diamonds, multi-coloured sapphires, pearls, spinels, rubies, and tourmalines.
Soft beach waves with a middle partition ruled Katrina’s pre-wedding looks. And for her makeup, the bride’s friend and renowned makeup artist Daniel Bauer created an au naturale looks that were created with a dewy base, blush tones and bold brows.
Another makeup trend one can’t miss among the Bollywood actor’s looks were the statement, dramatic brows. She opted for fuller, lusher brows that gave a more natural look. Our takeaway from this wedding is a happy bride is the prettiest.
