The sky is all different colours, like a peacock’s tale.

Indian weddings, in my eyes, are the best types of weddings. All embellished in bright colours and blooms, and dripping in gold and jewels. They’re charming and lighthearted. They’re dancing in the street while drums bellow, and laughing and cheering is scattered throughout the ceremony.

They’re wonderfully symbolic and beautifully sentimental.They’re joyous in their celebrations and incredibly generous in spirit.

I recently had the privilege of attending a traditional Indian wedding ceremony and absolutely relished the experience – and the opportunity to dress up. After much nervous research I opted for a simple (in the Indian world) red and gold sari with minimal gold jewellery (once again, in the Indian world). If ever you’re looking for sickening chandelier earrings and such, Indian shops are an absolute gold mine for reasonably priced costume jewellery, one that I took full advantage of.

For my makeup, I am still a huge fan of Benefit, wearing their liquid eyeliner, They’re Real mascara and brow gel. For my lips, I aimed to match them with my bright red sari, opting for Mac’s Lady Danger.
