Actor Rana Daggubati has tied the knot with Miheeka Bajaj in Hyderabad in a close-knit ceremony on Saturday. The first picture of the newly-weds was by actor Ram Charan on Instagram. The wedding saw just 30 guests in attendance. Rana’s father, producer Daggubati Suresh had previously shared that safety precautions would be ensured given the coronavirus pandemic.

Miheeka Bajaj went for a subtle look for the bridal trousseau and was seen in an intricately-embroidered ivory and gold lehenga, paired with a heavily-embroidered red dupatta.

The bride teamed her gorgeous lehenga with heavy Polki jewelry, along with a matha Patti, Nath (nose ring), worn with the chute. Her makeup by celebrity makeup artist Tamanna Rooz comprised a smokey eye makeup, while the rest was kept dewy and straightforward. Her hair was tied back into a neat bun.

According to a Times of India report, Miheeka’s wedding lehenga was designed by ace fashion designer Anamika Khanna. The ensemble featuring zardozi with chikankari and gold metalwork along with a woven red and gold dupatta took a total of 10,000 man-hours to complete.

“Miheeka and her mother Bunty Bajaj both have an excellent and subtle taste and wanted something exquisite for the wedding,” Anamika Khanna told TOI.

“We decided to do a cream and gold lehenga with a coral head veil. The lehenga is a hand done zardosi with the finest form of chikankari and gold metalwork teamed with a woven gold dupatta,” she explained.

The designer also revealed that the bride didn’t want anything “too loud” for her bridal look.

Actor Rana Daggubati complemented his bride’s look in a light gold Pancha with a patch border and a full-sleeved Falchi. The groom paired his look with a pattu shawl draped over the shoulders.

Speaking of matha Patti, the jewelry piece saw a comeback in a significant way during the Bollywood weddings of 2017-2018, starting with Anushka Sharma’s look, followed by Sonam Kapoor Ahuja and Deepika Padukone.

Historically, the traditional matha Patti was mostly worn as a dance ornament. A part of temple jewelry traditions, such pieces were created as unique offerings to Gods and Goddesses and also observed on the temple dancers as a critical part of their ornament tradition.
