If the dreamy wedding was all about red and gold, Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal’s intimate haldi ceremony was all about ivory, gold, and lots of laughter. The couple smothered in turmeric, looked madly in love in the photographs they posted on Instagram on Saturday. The message the couple wrote read: Shukr. Sabr. Khushi.
For the Haldi ceremony, Katrina Kaif wore a Sabyasachi ivory organdy lehenga with gota and tilla embroidery. She paired the lehenga with an organza dupatta in gota and marori embroidery, which also featured custom-trimmed handmade kiran similar to her bridal veil. The handmade kiran in hand-beaten silver electroplated gold was added to Katrina’s ensemble to pay tribute to Vicky’s Punjabi roots. On the other hand, Vicky Kaushal wore a Sabysachi embroidered khadi kurta and salwar set. Though the kurta didn’t say on for all, with Vicky getting smothered in haldi head to toe, we love how the couple’s haldi ceremony was filled with love, family, and laughter.
Adding a pop of colour to Katrina and Vicky’s look for the haldi ceremony was the pink tulle dupatta with sequin butti. Lauded with intricate motifs, each print incorporated in the outfits adorned by Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal during their wedding functions, were custom made by the Sabyasachi Art Foundation. The Sabyasachi Art Foundation was started by Sabyasachi and his sister as a tribute to their artist mother. Today it is an integral part of the brand both in a creative and socially responsible capacity. It strives to give indigenous artists and craftsmen due recognition and a means of livelihood.
On the other hand, joining in on the festivities were Katrina’s family including her mom Susan Turcotte and sisters Melissa and Natacha. The ladies channelled their love for all things desi and chose to wear Indian outfits designed by Punit Balana.

I used a lot of Jaipuri art including leheriya, bandhani and block prints along with rich traditional embroidery which is comfortable”.
