I love the embellishments and the glamorous palettes from Asian wedding styling that effortlessly inspires and lends itself to luxurious weddings. I wanted to share this shoot with you created by the talented Sharn of Desi Brides Dream.
I have always enjoyed the plethora of choice weddings can bring. How different colours and traditions outside of our own circles can open our minds and influence the styling and overall feel of our own wedding day choices.
This delightful shoot packed with inspiration is an example of this.

Over the Sharn!
This shoot oozes glamour and encapsulates two polar ends of luxurious Asian weddings.
An incredible team of wedding professionals gathered at Alrewas Hayes , a magnificent private estate in Burton-on-Trent to create a dazzling wedding set up, complete with table décor and of course, two fabulous bridal looks.
The traditional location was transformed by two different looks; a customary vibrant look providing a dramatic contrast, while the modern look harmonised, to produce a more subtle elegance.
We chose two looks to capture that regal essence.
With the help of stylist Prits Gosal, we were able to form a vibrant look of a traditional hot pink and green Este Couture lehengha, the gold sequins completing the look to make it radiate with glamour. The other look, for Asian brides wishing to go down a modern route, we styled our model in a beautiful Este Couture gown covered in beading and crystals to shine and glimmer effortlessly in the candlelight.
Recreate the Look
To recreate this look couldn’t be simpler, but it’s important to have colours and features which complement each other. Here we have incorporated different shades of gold which appear both in the dresses and the table décor, thus producing a harmony to the overall effect. The hairstyles, make-up and jewellery are specifically chosen to intensify the overall effect in both the contemporary and modern looks; the pop of green added around the eyes in the first look makes the look much more daring and captivating.
Glamour and opulence are enhanced by the use of sequins, beading and crystal.
An abundance of exquisite white roses and luscious hydrangeas across the table and the suspended orchids add a luxurious but elegant touch. The attention to detail in the use of gold chargers and mirror menus enhance the uniqueness of this occasion.
This shoot shows just how versatile today’s Asian wedding can be, whether you opt for a sultry modern look or go down the colourful, traditional route, you can create a wedding that radiates glamour and elegance.
