My Mehendi dress was from Rivaaj Boutique in Rajbagh (Srinagar). It was originally a lehenga which they stitched together in one evening (since I got the dress the day before the function - I know, it was stressful, but they made sure everything was perfect on such short notice).
My Nikah dress was handmade by the incredible Blush – Kanak Chandhok in Shahpurjat, Delhi. She did it all within one month. I had given her an idea of what colors and style I wanted, and she created it from scratch (it turned out way better than I could have ever imagined).
I did my own makeup for the Mehendi, but for the Nikah I used the extremely talented makeup artist Fiza Aziz Wani (she’s based in both Kashmir and Delhi). We had very little time to do it, yet she was so calm, professional and kind. I’ve never felt so beautiful before.
My husband got the fabric for his wedding suit from Polo View and then had Sher Ali add the embroidery (his shop is at the cross-junction Abi Guzar and Bund Road).
We rented Nigeen Club for the function, which was the perfect venue for such an occasion. I cannot recommend all these vendors enough!
Our photographers were Master Visuals – they were amazing! They captured every moment so beautifully.
