Follow Us | Aashni & Co Wedding Show 2015

A couple of weeks ago me and Kayennat were able to visit the Aashni & Co Wedding Show on the 25th of January. After contacting the company we were sent tickets and hey presto, we took the train to London and went. This was the same week that we came back from Mauritius, and regardless that each thing happened at the two tails of the week, it was exhausting. But then we also had two things which we went to on the Saturday, so it all added up. I even lost my black wide brim fedora. 

It was held at The Dorchester Hotel, near Hyde Park, in the Ballroom. OMG. Lets take a moment just to talk about the venue. It was beautiful. (Even without the gorgeous decor that was done by Zita Elze and her team.) It was just one of those places you step in and think wow, and just stare. 

When you first walk in, there was a photo booth area, which we had to get in line for of course!

This room had one of each designers outfits.

The event itself was for Aashni & Co's stockists, the wonderful Indian designers who are so difficult to find here. I personally hate most asian clothes I see in the shops, so to actually see the clothes that designers who I admire make in front of me, was so great. Now this was a bridal show, although there were things that members of the bridal party could have easily got away with. 

The designers:

  • Anushree Reddy
  • Arpita Mehta
  • Ashima Leena
  • Elisha W
  • Jaipur Gems
  • Kotwara by Meera and Muzaffar Ali
  • Manish Malhotra
  • Monisha Thahryamal
  • Nikasha
  • Pallavi Jaikishan
  • Rajesh Pratap Singh
  • Rimple and Harpreet Narula
  • Sabyasachi
  • Shehla Khan
  • Sonali Gupta
  • Tarun Tahiliani
  • Varun Bahl

Love this.

We wanted a selfie, this is what we got. Unfortunately didn't get the chance :(

 Well I just HAD to try an Anushree Reddy Lengha.

I had to hold it up. It was way too big around the middle. But OMG it was so lovely. I felt like amazing in it.

Zita Elze did all the decor for the rooms, and she and her team did such an amazing job! Everything was perfect.

Everything we are wearing is no longer sale! But Kay's top, skirt, shoes, and my dress are all from Asos, with my shoes being from Dorothy Perkins. 

We met up with Mandavi, Red Note Book, and Vic, London Ki Ladki.

I really enjoyed this bridal show. And it was all because of the amazing clothes! 
I would like to put out there also that all these are designer. They are not what you would say, affordable to most people. But, seeing as most brides fork out £1500+ for their bridal lengha, a £1400 Anushree Reddy lengha that is so much nicer is a nice alternative. That in mind, a lot of the others, were more. That is all.

Also, sorry for the lack of posts. We're stuck in a writers rut.
