Just like Sonam Kapoor Ahuja who married the man of your dreams Anand Ahuja, many women wish to walk the path in a beautiful fashion and make their big day really special. Sonam Kapoor did give us an insight into their fairy tale wedding with a Vogue photo-shoot, which she shared on Instagram. Like her, bride-to-be, Namrata Loka also went down the conventional path, but in her own style and uniqueness.
Before we understand how Namrata Loka, assistant to the Regional Manager at #OneWedding, made a style statement at her own wedding, let’s see Sonam Kapoor’s wedding Vogue photo-shoot:

With her mother Sunita, applying Mehndi:
And now, Namrata Loka, who describes herself as a journalist and vlogger on Instagram, has just created a new trend with her own visualization of her wedding blouse.
She’s also the founder of @shopmiraya, an online store which sells exquisite contemporary and modern Indian accessories. No wonder, that swag!
Going totally unique, Namrata Loka didn’t choose any designer blouse, but instead, got her stitched with her love story. She got it embroidered with everything about her special man and their union!
This special blouse was designed by Disha Patel, founder and designer at Soirée Couture and also Namrata’s friend. She’s made her blouse a reality.
Ms Patel turned Namrata’s most ‘favorite outfit’ from her visualization into a reality. This blouse added a special touch in Namrata and Kiran’s big day.
There were innumerable things that had us on our tippy toes, one that filled my heart with pride was the launch of @ananditaahuja + @chassterr’s venture: @lumeinc photobooth. Customisable, outstanding studio lighting, and instant gratification through high res captures. We walked away with the most adorable souvenirs from our #Holi sundowner! PS: You’ll need to head to my profile to see this.
Loka was very nervous about the outcome but documented the entire process on her blog. She said, “I had an insane time drawing, writing, tracing with some of my favorite people.
The fabric used for the blouse was same as her kanjeevaram saree and to make it more interesting, Disha added golden fringes to the sleeves.
I never had a dream wedding, our wedding WAS my dream wedding. And for that reason, I never had a prospective wedding outfit in mind. When the time had come, I knew I’d add my touch to couture; a one-of-a-kind outfit, for a one-of-a-kind story.

The front was a snapshot from 2013 when Kiran proposed Namrata Loka. out and the back was from four years later, when she sad yes. Here’s another picture of the lovely couple:
“There are two people you’ll meet in your life. One will run a finger down the index of who you are and jump straight to the parts of you that pique their interest. The other will take his or her time reading through every one of your chapters and maybe fold corners of you that inspired them most. You will meet these two people, it is a given. It is the third that you’ll never see coming. That one person who not only finishes your sentences, but keeps the book.” – author unknown Photo: @journeysbyram
The ruffled sleeves have detailed representation of their favorite photos The left and ride side had memories of their first date and car ride embroidered forever.
@ananditaahuja: my best friend, my wedding week survival kit, my creative better half…and now, my co-founder at #OneWedding!

The highlight were the lines written by Kiran himself, about the year 2014, when he had asked her for marriage.
Namrata shared the entire experience from conceptualization to the final product, which is totally worth it! Have a look at the making which is as stunning as the blouse itself:
Namrata made dream outfit out of a dream wedding and we love it. What do you think of her look? Tell us in the comments.
