Our Favourite Bridal Lehengas
After shooting and being a part of so many fantastic and fun weddings, we can’t help but notice the beautiful and elaborate Bridal Lehengas worn by our brides. We are always fascinated by their stories about finding “the one” — all the thought, planning and research that goes into finding their perfect bridal lehenga. Inspired by their stories, we decided to do go down the memory lane and choose some of the lehengas that we loved on our brides. As photographers, we picked up the colours and styles that look best in wedding photographs and, obviously, makes the bride stand out!
#1 Classic Red
Since the day we shot this wedding, we cannot stop drooling over this elegant masterpiece by Sabyasachi. A timeless classic, this one perfectly suits Indian Brides – across seasons, skin tones and body types. The simple choli complements the heavily embroidered lehenga skirt and dupatta. As a colour, red never disappoints and always stands out in photographs. Our lovely bride, Sanya, looked gorgeous in this lehenga!
#2: Floral Elegance
This gorgeous pink floral bridal lehenga, paired with a sheer dupatta is one of our favourites! It looks rich and almost ethereal. Even though the colours are subtle and the design simple, it photographs beautifully! We’re totally digging the entry of florals into mainstream bridal wear. Our bride Paayal looked enchanting in this floral pink lehenga. It’s subtle and dazzling, all at once and is perfect for a day wedding.
#3: Bold and Beautiful
Although purple is not the traditional bridal colour, we are immensely inspired by our beautiful bride Nandini’s choice. Diametrically opposite from the usual gamut of reds and similar coloured bridal outfits, this bold outfit stands out in the sea of reds, pinks and oranges. Nandini looks absolutely stunning in this Sabyasachi creation. The striking colour is a guaranteed head turner!
#4 Glittering Gold
Without venturing too far from the classic bridal colours, we loved Vidya’s choice of gold for her wedding lehenga! The lehenga is a lovely combination of a modern, flattering silhouette and exquisite Sabysachi embroidery. The combination looks gorgeous in photographs and we got some pretty incredible portraits of our gorgeous bride.
#5 Vibrant Mulitcolours
If you cannot make a decision in terms of colour and design for your wedding lehenga, you don’t have to! Enjoy the best of all worlds by choosing a multicolour lehenga like our bride Isha! She looked lovely in this vibrant design at her Mussoorie wedding!
While the Classic Red Lehenga wins more times than any other kind, we also love the choices of brides out there who are not afraid to wear something unusual. The ones who want something to suit their personalities more perfectly and something to stand apart from the crowd. From a photography point of view, we will always love vibrant colours like red, fuchsia, orange, but we are also great fans of unusual combinations. If styled and accessorised well, we believe that even subdued whites, creams, golds and pastels can stand out in the crowd. We love it when the brides are not afraid of stirring the pot a bit!
