Koecsh during its launch was a portal for all things fun and fashion. Since then, the brand has developed into the Koecsh Studio which is widely known for its edgy western and ethnic wear. Kresha Bajaj, owner of Koecsh works on personalized and one-off pieces and admires working with women who are courageous enough to do something exciting and distinctive with their outfits. 

Kresha says, “My clients, like me, love expressing themselves in the way they dress.”

Unsurprisingly, when it was time for her to marry her boyfriend VanrajZaveri, in the three months prominent  to the wedding, she decided to design and implement not just both their wedding wardrobes but also for her family and some friends! Here she tells us about their exceptional looks at the splendid celebration in Udaipur.

Tip: For beautiful couples hailing from Jaipur, they can choose Samode Palace Jaipur as wedding venue for such beautiful marriage.

Kresha was stirred by the 'Real Housewives' television show star Adrienne Maloof as the star framed her bridal outfit as an art piece in her walk-in closet. “I thought it was a cool idea. Vanraj loves art, and I don’t because I get bored of looking at the same thing on my wall,” she says. “But I didn’t want to get sick of looking at my wedding outfit. The nicest thing we’d never get bored of looking at was our love story. And that’s what I decided to put into my lehenga.”
Bajaj says that the process was not easy. “Initially it was a bit worrying because we didn’t want it to come out comical,” she says. Her beau chose white and gold as the theme for their wedding trousseau, and Bajaj would spend hours with the karigars who were embroidering special milestones from the couple’s life together on to the cloth.
“The image of two people clinking their glasses is inspired by Vanraj’s first Instagram post after proposing to me in the Maldives,” reveals Bajaj. “We had just popped a bottle of champagne, and he clicked a picture of me with the glass of champagne and the ring.”

Another scene is inspired by the proposal picture that Bajaj posted on her Instagram feed, while a third scene features the wedding venue itself. “This one of Leela Palace Udaipur, where we got married, is from the time when we were going to the hotel in a boat to finalise our weddings preparations,” she says.

The newlyweds' names have also been embroidered in a repeated pattern in beautiful zari work on the lehenga.
“The hem of the lehenga and the dupatta are adorned with jumping dolphins,” says Bajaj, revealing the story behind this atypical pattern. “Vanraj and I knew each other as kids but never really got along. In 2014, we found ourselves working on a project against dolphin captivity together, and that’s when we really connected.”
Zaveri also wore a white and gold silk sherwani that borrowed a simple floral pattern from Bajaj’s blouse. “We wanted to keep it really simple. He also made beautiful jewelled buttons for his outfit, and designed my wedding jewellery,” says Bajaj, who claims to have hated jewellery all her life, but was happy with her husband’s timeless designs.

Bajaj added her own edgy style to the classic ensemble by donning a pair of golden Giuseppe Zanotti heels. “I had to have something crazy and insane,” she says laughing. She also mentioned that she chose a simple but unique mehendi design eschewing standard patterns.

Although people at the wedding didn’t catch onto the love story on Bajaj’s outfit right away, they were quite impressed when they came to know about the story behind the design. Her lehenga has also caught the eye of several to-be brides around the world, specially in London and Australia.
