This Luxe 3 Day Wedding Is Like Nothing We’ve Ever Seen Before

You haven’t seen extravagant until you’ve seen the glamorous Indian Wedding of fashion influencer and model Diipa Khosla.

Diipa and Oleg’s Three day Wedding Celebration began with one of the many exciting prewedding rituals, the Mehendi, where Diipa opted to wear soft pastel colours and old Bollywood style glam hair and makeup.

This was followed by Day Two of the wedding where the ‘Haldi’ ritual took place, which was one of the couples favourite events, otherwise known as a Tumeric Cleansing ceremony! The Haldi is a traditional pre- wedding cleansing ceremony where the Bride and Groom are cleansed with turmeric by family and friends in anticipation of their wedding. The mixture is believed to bless the couple before the wedding, ward off any evil spirits, and give a nice ‘glow’ to the young couple for the big day.

A few hours after the Haldi was the beautifully intimate and emotion-filled ‘Chooda’ ceremony where the Brides maternal family and bridesmaids blessed her with bridal bangles just moments before she officially tied the knot.

After the Chooda ceremony came the ‘Baraat!’ The Baraat is one of the most fun parts of the groom’s traditions, as this is where the craziness begins. Here it is customary for the groom to travel to the Bride’s house, on a decorated horse, accompanied by his family members and friends who are supposed to make a big impression with extravagant dancing and loud singing.

Shortly after, was the official Indian Wedding ceremony and it looked completely magical and emotion filled.  When the last ritual of the wedding ceremony was over, the couple gets up to touch the feet of all the elder members in the family and seek their blessings for a happily married life.

And finally, on Day three of the Wedding celebration it was time for the European wedding ceremony, where Diipa said “I do” in the most stunning and magnificent gown custom made by couture designer Ashi Studio.

Be inspired, Fairies!

Baraat #thebullslas style aka: Dutch Prince @olegbuller coming on his white horse to get me👸🏻🐎 ~ The Baraat is one of the most interesting (and fun) parts of the groom's traditions, as this is where the craziness begins. In North Indian communities, it is customary for the groom to travel to the wedding venue (often the bride’s house) on a decorated horse, accompanied by his family members and friends who are supposed to make a big impression by extravagant dancing and loud singing. When the groom is seated on a horse after his sisters have blessed it and given it food, the wedding procession is on. The bigger, the louder, the crazier, the more impressive to the bride’s family and thus… the better. 🎉🎉🎉 ~ Video by @musemotionpictures

A few months before the wedding, when my mother told us about all the steps and beautiful ceremonies of the Indian wedding, there was one contentious point: the touching of the man’s feet at the completion of the Indian Wedding ceremony. 🙌🏼 ~ “Why is only the woman to touch the man’s feet?”, we asked. “Why not both touch each other’s feet in mutual respect?” Mom’s shocked large eyes gave away her thoughts about what people might say if Oleg was to touch my feet in return. All the anties and uncles…wouldn’t they disapprove? 😱 ~ Though Mom’s traditional Indian background did not allow her to be sure about this being a good thing, we were sure. We would both touch each other’s feet in mutual respect from woman to man, and from man to woman. From a wife to her husband, and from a husband to his wife. 🙏🏼 ~ As we also decided to adopt, out of that same mutual respect, each others surnames. As from today onwards we are Oleg Büller-Khosla and Diipa Büller-Khosla. (whether it would be Büller first or Khosla first was still a discussion, but I let him have that one:))😉♥️ #thebullslas #indianwedding

Day 3 of #theBullslas its time for the European wedding ceremony. 👰🏻🤵🏼 ~ I said “I DO” in the most special and magnificent gown custom made by my favourite couture designer @ashistudio 🙌🏼 ~ Mr. Ashi knew exactly how to translate my childhood fairytale fantasy into a reality, drawing inspiration from several Indian artworks and the Maharaja inspiration, creating an intricately designed bridal gown fit for a princess. The rich cream colored handmade Ashi Studio masterpiece required over 1600 hours of craftsmanship by 35 artisans to be completed, weighing in at just over 12 kgs, the princess-cut bridal gown made from hand-embroidered tulle flawlessly incorporates traditional sentimental elements, such as embroidery details inspired by my lavish Indian culture, with an updated modern twist. Basically, The most perfect bridal gown I could have ever imagined. 🙏🏼🙏🏼 ~ P.s: This was the dress in the huge box we carried across the oceans 😉♥️ ~ Thank you for capturing these moments @fihfotografie #thebullslas #wedding Bridesmaids dresses @twobirdsbridesmaid
