When Yasir Hussain became famous at the Lux Style Awards this July, an unsuspecting Iqra Aziz was a puddle of emotions and said yes to the “love of her life”.

Ahead of intimate mehendi and mayun events, Iqra chose Nomi Ansari to create a bespoke all-red bridal ensemble for her big day, not so easily resembling something Priyanka Chopra wore on the ramp, not to mention Hania Amir .

The model cum actress looked just as gorgeous as you’d expect, and delicately selected traditional ensembles for all of her events – a mehendi event that doubled as a Nikkah event and a Valima reception.
