We love to see beautiful traditions transposed into a modern aesthetic, and this soft and ethereal Bollywood bridal inspiration is nothing short of lovely. Bridal sarees are always detailed in the most stunning of ways and typically bolder hued, and we simply cannot take our eyes off this delicate champagne hue (which is actually a bridal gown from Lazaro, but it sure does the trick!). With traditional jewellery accents and a romantic bouquet, this look couldn’t be more perfect.

More from the event designer, Birds & Honey:
“We hoped to create a minimalist shoot that embodied a modern, effortless South Asian bride. A little bit of wind and a breathtaking bride were all the elements we needed as inspiration for this Bollywood inspired editorial. Most South Asian brides are accustomed to bold and brighter tones of deep red and pink tones when planning their weddings, but we wanted to showcase a softer,  more muted touch for the modern bride. I find so much beauty in simplicity and showcasing softer, neutral palettes. There is still an element of the bolder homage to the beautiful culture of the bride with her stunning jeweled Lazaro gown while the florals balance everything out. The beauty is truly in the movement of the bride as she is walking towards a new adventure in her life and how the wind delicately blows her saree, her hair and the stunning Silk & Willow ribbon in her bouquet.”
