Is it just us or does everyone feel that celebrity weddings look the same these days? The popular Indian cricketer’s latest wedding pictures Jasprit Bumrah and Sanjana Ganesan We wondered when we last discovered something new and unique as a wedding trend. No offense, but their wedding arrangements looked exactly like a copy of Virsuhkas. From the wedding decorations to their outfits to their poses, we wondered if we would see double. With that as a foundation, we dug a little deeper to find out what is common at every Indian celebrity wedding.
1. The 50 shades of pink by Devika Narain
Devika Narain and Bollywood weddings are now synonymous. All thanks to the dreamy Tuscan fairy tale wedding that she designed for Virushka. It has since become a favorite and impresses with its ethereal decor, in which every corner has a story to tell. And her infinite love of shades of pink deserves special mention as she shows up at almost every celebrity wedding. The mandap, the decor of the venue, everything is bathed in pink and pastel tones. From Jasprit Bumrah’s wedding to Gauahar Khan, Robin Uthappa to Dinesh Kartik, Devika has been the first choice for most high profile weddings in India and abroad.
2. Red or Pink, Sabyasachi FTW!
It’s hard to name celebrities who didn’t wear sabyasachi for their big day. Be it a traditional red Banarasi saree, a Kanjivaram silk or a heavily decorated red and gold lehenga, Sabyasachi has been the first designer for everyone for a decade.
From Priyanka Chopra to Anushka Sharma, from Vidya Balan to Bipasha Basu, from Asin Thotumkal to Sagarika Ghatge and from South Indian beauty Samantha Akkineni, they all chose the same designer for their big day. In fact, they just couldn’t let go of Sabyasachi not only for their wedding day, but also for their rituals before and after the wedding.
3. Stories by Joseph Radhik
We don’t remember the last time we saw a wedding photographer other than Joseph Radhik. From PeeCee-Nick to Virushka, from Asin-Rahul to Jasprit-Sanjana, he has captured almost every celebrity wedding that comes straight out of a Bollywood film.
And its popularity in the south is no less; The stunning wedding pictures of Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Naga Chaitanya are proof. There’s no denying that the wedding pictures are perhaps the best we’ve seen. However, after a certain point, they all look the same. Jasprit-Sanjana’s wedding photo shoot, which resembled Virushkas, is evidence of this.
4. Italian wedding destination
If it’s not in Italy, is it even a destination wedding? From Rani Mukerji to Anushka Sharma, Deepika Padukone to Neha Bhasin and Isha Ambani and Anand Piramal’s engagement, Italy has always been a popular wedding destination for Indian celebrities.
It wouldn’t be wrong to say that it is only the pandemic that has kept many celebrities from tying the knot in Italy.
