British boxing champion Amir Khan married aspiring model Faryal Makhdoom in an extravagant wedding at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City earlier this month. When the bride announced shortly after her engagement that she was working with Indian couturier, Tarun Tahiliani, on her wedding outfits we knew they would be nothing short of extraordinary.
For the wedding ceremony, Faryal wore a traditional lehenga with rich gold threadwork and ornate gota and zardozi embroidery trimmed in silk and velvet. The heavily embellished skirt was paired with a net dupatta and intricately embroidered blouse with sheer sleeves that lent a delicate contrast to the heaviness of the skirt. The bride accessorized the look with red and gold kundan jewelry which included a maang tikka, hathphool and matching necklace and earrings.
Although, we tend to focus primarily on women’s fashion it would be remiss of us if we didn’t mention the handsome groom who wore a traditional red, gold and white sherwani that coordinated with bride’s elegant ensemble. Staying true to his “King Khan” moniker, Amir finished his regal look with a crimson turban, multi-strand pearl necklace and golden sword.
Follwing their lavish nuptials in New York, the newlyweds celebrated their reception or walima in Amir’s hometown of Bolton, England. For the occasion, Faryal wore another Tarun Tahiliani design, this time a white kalidar jacket embellished with pearls, Swarovski Elements crystals and delicate threadwork which was worn over a long, flowing skirt.
