The nikaah, the wedding as it is known in Muslim matrimony traditions, was quiet an intimate affair; with the bride putting on traditional lehengas that was quite chic yet had that classic Indian ethnic touch of bling.
For her mehendi ceremony, Nigaar had out on a beautiful yet subtle lehengas and went around with a nude make-up. For the accessories part, she adorned herself up with pretty floral jewellery tied like a tiara, necklace and bracelets. She had let her hair down loose and looked very much the beautiful Indian bride decking up towards her Nikaah whereas sister Gauhar complemented her older sibling by decking up in a beautiful mint lehenga designed by Astha Narang; very much looking the perfect Indian bridesmaid to her sister.
Post wedding, Nigaar is supposed to move out of India and settle in Dubai with her husband. She glowed and basked all glories of the quintessential Indian bride on all her wedding ceremonies while sister Gauhar Khan shared the pictures on Instagram and Twitter as well.
Though the nikaah was a quiet and intimate family affair, with relatives, close friends and colleagues from the industry, attending the nikaah all over from India; it reported that Nigaar would be holding a grand reception party in Mumbai, in August, for all her friends in India.
Nigaar’s outfits were remained within the feminine colours of pink, peach, maroon and red and she looked gorgeous in every of her outfit.
For her wedding day, Nigaar decked up amazingly in her dark red and golden beige outfit with intricate gold zari work- that looked so much Indian, yet was in its own way- quite subtle and trendy. With her stunning smoky dark eyes done in the Egyptian brush way, Nigaar looked all perfect for her D-day. Nigaar had put on tradition Indian nikaah accessories and at the same time, stuck to a minimal jewellery sporting that went in synchronisation with her gorgeous, sparkling nikaah dress. Her hair done up in a loose, 80s bun, adorned by dark red floral jewellery added to the wow factor simply! A pretty pearl and gold nose ring complemented by the hair tiara made her look complete and perfect for the wedding day.
