There seems to be a lot of wedding buzz in the Telugu film industry off late- first it was Rana Dagubatti who tied the knot in a wedding amidst the pandemic, and now it was the turn of actress Kajal Aggarwal who got married to her beau Gautam Kitchlu in a pretty intimate wedding in Mumbai. Her wedding was special as the actress, who happens to be a Punjabi but is very big down South had a traditional Telugu ceremony included as well, as an ode to the love she has got from the fraternity. Here are all her wedding looks- we absolutely adored her pretty Anamika Khanna bridal lehenga!
For her wedding, Kajal picked this unique Anamika Khanna bridal lehenga, a teaser for which was given with this pretty black and white photo!
Kajal went with a trendy sispatti for her jewellery, which we loved. The lehenga turned out to be quite a stunner too with shades of red and a lot of intricate embroidery and a light pink dupatta. The lehenga had a royal look and traditional colours but looked very modern, making it a perfect pick! We loved the addition of a waist belt to pull the look together. Her kaleeras by Mrinalini Chandra and Jewellery by Sunita Shekhawat were gorgeous as well!
While Kajal picked Anamika Khanna to dress her, Gautam wore a sherwani by Anita Dongre.
Anamika Khanna wrote, "Kajal’s lehnga is a labour of love. An intricate zardosi embroidered floral pattern that took 20 people almost a month to create."
Kajal also wrote, "In our Punjabi meets Kashmiri wedding, we just had to include #Jeelakarrabellam - a tribute to both Gautam and my individual relationships with South India! In a Telugu wedding, Jeelakarra Bellam signifies the union/marriage of the bride and the groom. Jeelakarra (cumin) and bellam (jaggery) are made into a thick paste and put on a tamalapaku (betel leaf). The bride and the groom put it on each other’s head while the purohit chants mantras from the Vedas. The bride and the groom look at each other only after this ceremony is completed and this auspicious ceremony signifies that the couple will stay together in bitter and sweet times."
The couple opted for a rather low-key after party due to the ongoing pandemic at the Taj Mahal Mumbai. Kajal looked resplendent in a spectacular dull gold fitted Falguni Shane Peacock with her chooda adding a pop of colour.
For a Pooja, Kajal wore this pretty Anita Dongre lehenga. This hand embroidered lehenga was custom created for Kajal inspired by the couple’s favourite holiday destination, Villa d’Este in Italy. She completed her look with a matching embroidered potli and jewellery by Anita Dongre Pinkcity.
For the engagement, Kajal picked a lace canary yellow Manish Malhotra saree with a gorgeous back, which was made for her during the lockdown by the designer back in June. A very offbeat pick for an engagement, but very very pretty!
This beaded back has our heart, and in true COVID fashion, the bride and groom also got matching masks to their outfits!
Kajal's mehendi look was rather low-key- she opted for a mint kurta imagined with the prints of the season and subtle contrasting greens at the hemline paired with coordinated sharara with pockets. She completed her look with Nitara Chanbaalis by Anita Dongre Pinkcity.
Kajal's pick for the chooda ceremony was an orange stunner by Shyamal Bhumika, which was paired with a gorgeous choker necklace by Sunita Shekhawat. Those pretty kaleere you see are by Mrinalini Chandra.
And finally, her haldi look was simple too, in the traditional yellow paired with floral jewellery.
