Founder & CEO at The Crimson Bride. As I planned my own wedding not long ago, I really enjoyed the creative process of putting together a wedding that would be true to who I am and our story. I loved discovering amazing designers and wedding professionals and found myself spending countless hours being inspired by their incredible work. I began sharing my musings on a humble blog titled called The Crimson Bride, and the rest is history. Well, actually you can read more about it here.

The Crimson Bride is also my creative outlet and an opportunity for me to share my love and admiration for all things Indian - art, craft, culture, film and fashion. I am also a bit of a film geek and may have a mild crush on Ryan Gosling. I love travelling, spending quality time with family and friends.

It would only be fitting to inaugurate this site with the beautiful 'Crimson' inspired bridal shoot by Fashion Editor Mohit Rai featured in the Harper's Bazaar Bride India March 2014 issue. This shoot is everything we stand for at The Crimson Bride - modern, edgy, contemporary, chic.

Styles we are loving from the editorial:

  • Range of textures and work used on the outfits including gota patti, zari work and thread work that give a modern, understated and elegant look
  • Crimson round bindis for a vintage touch
  • Oversized necklaces and nose rings for a statement look
  • Tiny beaded chains for a delicate touch to the gold jewellery pieces
  • Light net veil to soften the bridal look
  • Victorian glamour with structured blouses and high waisted lehngas 
  • Modern silhouettes with lovely violet toning
