Dia Mirza Wedding and Reception Photos

It wasn't just any Ritu Kumar‬ ensemble for Dia Mirza's Delhi wedding. The actor transformed herself into a Mughal-style bride in shades of emerald and gold. In the middle of Friday night, Bollywood actor and producer Dia Mirza publicly announced a new phase of her life on Twitter—her wedding with longtime beau Sahil Sangha via a picture of the couple at the mehendi function that took place in Delhi earlier that day. Dia Mirza's wedding planners are Erina DeAbreu and Natasha Katgara Gocal of Divinity Weddings. They are also responsible for actress Vidya Balan's wedding. We have for you Dia Mirza's wedding photos. 

For her mehendi ceremony, Dia Mirza posed next to Sahil Sangha wearing a deep marigold yellow colored chanderi anarkali by Ritu Kumar, with a vintage cut on the kurta. The gold metallic taar used is of silver worked in gold thread and dori, to give it a stylized plant inlay look. Each panel is highlighted with a flowering buta. The dupatta is fuschia worked with small butis of the same beaten gold gota patti, a fuschia brocade deep sinjaf finishes the edges of the outfit

The three-day celebrations started on Friday with a mehendi function, which was followed by a sangeet the next day, where Mirza was clad in an Anita Dongre ensemble at a farmhouse in New Delhi.

Ritu Kumar designed a traditional green and gold joda for the bride, the embroidery work of old zardozi craftsmanship dating back to the Mughal era. Not your conventional bridal outfit, it was made up of a kurta, farshi pajama and a dupatta. The outfit was typically Hyderabadi in aesthetic, even the dupatta's embroidery done by master craftsmen with a lineage from the Avadh court. "The elaborate borders placed on both the paat (upper half of the pajama) and the gote (lower half) seams are finished in a style typical of the Hyderabadi court, a city which Dia Mirza has lived in for many years," says the designer.
