When it comes to designer bridals, there really isn’t any name that comes to mind other than Khadija Shah. With Elan, Shah – in a remarkably short time – has managed to give fashion greats like Bunto Kazmi and Rizwan Beyg a run for their money. Elan’s bridal collections keep getting better and better with breathtaking craftsmanship, unique colour combinations, and impeccable finishing.
Today, we round up 10 of the most beautiful Elan brides, starting with Urwa Hocane.
She looked gorgeous in her custom-made, traditional, Palais Indochine couture gharara. The delicate colours and embellishments complimented her jewellery, leaving her looking like an embodiment of elegance.
More recently, we spotted this beautiful ivory (lined with peach) bridal dress with a mix of gold and silver work. This dress has oodles of fairy tale vibes about it!
Khadija Shah rarely does colors, but when she does, she makes you stop and stare.
Mariam Rehmatullah stunned in this intricately put together outfit with delicate florals in shades of pink, which looked oh-so-chic against the peachy fabric. The combination of antique gold kaam, cutwork, and sheer fabrics left us in awe!
This flawless bride looks regal in her beige and silver dress, with deep burgundy detailing on the underside of the dupatta. Can you spot the birds hiding out on the gharara?
Here’s another Elan dress bursting with color and charisma. As the captions says, “the craft speaks for it self”. We’re truly digging the combination of modern silhouette (that cold shoulder) with traditional embroidery.
As the photographer says, the bride is ablaze in silver glory! From the elaborate work bordering the dupatta, to the glistening embellishment adorning the shirt, Elan’s true workmanship stands out in this one!
Saira Hussain’s wedding in Manchester was a star-studded affair. She didn’t have any other option, but to look her very best; if not for anyone else, for the paparazzi! Her understated, yet beautiful, lehenga choli in a subtle beige did just that. She stood tall and proud amongst the stars, shining bright all on her own in her bridal glory.
Stories From The Indus is one of Elan’s most appealing bridal collections ever. Look at this jewel-toned sharara cinched at the waist. Just look at it.
If silver is your colour, then this heavily worked bridal is perfect for you! Meticulously crafted, this outfit works well with the glitzy diamond jewellery.
House of Osman Ghani captures this shot perfectly, making the striking bride stand out even more against the regal British background. The shimmering colour palette dazzle in the sun and we can’t take our eyes of the bride, and that’s the whole purpose of the perfect bridal jora right?
We love the simple neutral colour palettes of the Elan brides. It is a welcome step-back from the overly traditional red, and towards the ethereal hues that have the brides glowing on the happiest day of their lives!
