The instagram influencer known for her aesthetic feed and fairy-core travel images, Alanna Panday, the cousin of Ananya Panday tied knot with her long term boyfriend, the film director, Ivor McCray in their dreamy Mumbai wedding. Alanna mentions that all their wedding venues were decorated in a style and theme that were reminiscent of their favourite places in the world. Panday’s wedding wardrobe seemed minimal at heart yet maximal in expression, details and artistic value. Celebrity stylist, Ami Patel assisted her wedding wardrobe and it was nothing short of a dream come to life. All of Panday’s bridal looks were distinct, yet kept collected in a uniform theme. With her all-white, bride-to-be day celebrations, the digital creator’s Instagram feed soon filled with wedding festivities looking like an assorted pinterest board.
Kicking off the celebrations with a Mehendi ceremony, Panday was dressed in a most stunning and chic lehenga, curated with botanical details in lovely mints and gold embellishments by Custom Rahul Mishra Couture. The designer brings out all the details in his post caption, “
We started working on the embroidery artwork featured in Alanna’s look in October 2022. When finally shared with her in November, she loved the botanicals in the first glance and everything moved from there. The idea was to embody the youthful, fun & dainty person that she is and put it in the ensemble.
While the embroidery is intricate and meticulous, it is ultra lightweight. There are motifs such as giraffes, squirrels and tigers that the wearer discovers before the cameras. We had wanted to create something special, something fresh and at the same time, something mindful for her special day.
Alanna’s look takes over 3500 hours to create at our atelier and was sampled across five months of time. The ‘kissing cranes’ on the bralet were a nod to her love for travelling.”
For Haldi Panday “wore the most gorgeous mermaid cut lehenga by Papa Don’t Preach By Shubhika for our haldi brunch. This outfit was inspired by all things I love the most! We incorporated scalloped shoulder sleeve details inspired by seashells, shades of soft turquoise waters, pinks florals and off course the Mermaid silhouette! To tie it in with our Italian farmers market theme we included small Italian inspired motifs to line the skirt”, she pens down in her instagram caption.
For the Haldi ceremony, wherein they played with Haldi, she chose an embellished jumpsuit by Payal Singhal. The designer describes the outfit: “PSBride Alanna Panday adorned a custom designed ecru georgette sharara and backless choli with velvet appliqué and zardosi work, inspired by an Italian holiday, in synchrony with the ‘Italian Farmers Market’ theme.”
A frosty lehenga in shades of white with dreamy, intricate details was Panday;s choice for phereas. The Manish Malhotra custom couture spewed magic all over. With a flowy trail, against an enchanted forest like decor, the all white ensemble blended seamlessly like a fairytale scene. “Our stunning bride Alanna Panday adorns our ivory handcrafted thread-work lehenga, embellished with subtle pearls, bugle beads and crystals. Our trademark petal edging finish enhances the signature #mmveil. Perfecting the final highlights, the bridal look is complete with the ingeniously statement choker and necklace with exquisite earrings in handcrafted ultra-fine diamonds from Manish Malhotra Diamond Jewellery”, describes the couturier on their Instagram caption.
All sparkle went down for Panday’s wedding reception. A high-slit skirt paired with a cut-out bralette in a shimmery fabric and champagne colour, designed by Falguni Shane Peacock seemed like the ideal pick for a night to dance away.
