For the nuptials, Nayanthara opted for a handcrafted red sari from Jade by Monica and Karishma. “The intricately realised tone on tone embroidery is inspired by the carvings of the temples of Hoysala. In a thoughtful tribute to the actor’s love for tradition, Monica and Karishma reimagined Goddess Lakshmi motifs as bajubandh on the sleeves of the blouse,” the fashion label wrote on Instagram.
The fourth vow, weaved into the bride’s ensemble, was personalised with the couple’s names, symbolising “togetherness, commitment and mutual respect”.
Contrasting the vermilion red colour of the sari, she accessorised it with emerald jewellery — a layered neckpiece, choker, earrings, maang tikka and bangles.
With her hair tied in a gajra-adorned bun, she completed the look with a red bindi, shimmery eyeshadow, sleek eyeliner, blushed cheeks and mauve lip colour.
Complementing the bride, Vignesh wore a veshti, kurta and shawl “resonating with the four pheras signifying Dharma, Arth, Kama and Moksha”. He completed the look with tan-brown juttis, a sleek gold chain and a wristwatch.
