#WeddingSeries – Newlywed Bridal Shoot with Indus Threads!


// Sari Sabyasachi from Indus Threads //

“How’s married life?” is the first question I get from family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, and almost everyone I’ve met since our wedding day.  While I usually answer with the typically “it’s great” response, I always wonder how to truly answer this question. Life as a newlywed is full of emotions. A new home, responsibilities, family, friends, location are just a few of the changes that you experience. It’s a time when you mature, grow, and find yourself like never before.  There are of course ups and downs, but through these moments you discover what marriage is truly about. This time as a newlywed is a celebration of discovery and love all at the same time. I wanted to capture this time as a newlywed and found just the right team to make it happen here in the Bay  area!

I met Sumaira Nabeel, founder of Indus Threads, through Instagram and we both bonded over our love for fashion. Sumaira founded Indus Threads with the mission to provide access to high-end South Asian wear right to your doorstep – through a rental service! We’ve all experienced that feeling of buying an expensive South Asian outfit, only to think, “will I ever wear this again?!” Indus Threads solves this problem by sourcing outfits from leading South Asian designers for rent. With brands such as Sabyasachi, Ridhi Mehra, Sehrish Rehan, and Nida Azwer, Indus Threads allows you to experience luxury designer wear affordably.
During our first conversation, Sumaira mentioned that she wanted to do a bridal themed shoot for her collection. We chatted about how people do pre-wedding shoots, wedding shoots, but what about a Newlywed Bridal shoot?! Capturing the memories of your time as a new bride is an idea we immediately fell in love with. When selecting an outfit for the shoot, I was amazed by all the options Indus Threads provides from saris to fusion wear. I immediately gravitated towards the saris and found the most stunning mint green Sabyasachi sari. To highlight the embroidery of the sari, I wore my Shillpa Purii Designer Jewellery statement studs. We picked Stanford University as our location and Jennifer from Townhill Photography worked her magic to capture the joy, emotions, and radiance of a new bride! Stay tuned to part 2 and 3 of my collaboration with Indus Threads coming soon!

  1. i always feel that when it comes to really expensive saree or salwars because i use it 1-2 times and its always with same crowd so definitely want more variety. im really digging the idea of renting as well, esp high end ones that i wouldnt normally buy for myself.
