Bakhtawar Bhutto-Zardari and Mahmood Choudhry’s extravagant wedding week is all anyone can talk about. The two tied the knot in an intimate nikkah ceremony on January 29 with a wedding reception the next day.
Although, pictures and details from the wedding festivities are limited. Considering there was a no cellphone policy at the event, and guests were also limited because of COVID-19 SOPs.
However, while thanking everyone for their prayers and wishes, the bride promised that the couple “will be sharing [their] joy” with their well-wishers through the moments captured.
Staying true to their word, Bakhtawar and Mahmood shared pictures of themselves from their mehndi night on social media.
While the groom donned a cream shalwar kameez with a shawl for the occasion, the bride glowed in a red and green outfit by Zara Shahjahan.
Bakhtawar’s Mehndi Dress
Bakhtawar also shared a closeup of her outfit to show the details which included a tribute to her late mother Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto.
The dupatta was embroidered with the poem, ‘Woh ladki laal qalandar’ and Bakhtawar also held a pouch with an embroidered portrait of Benazir on it.
The embroidered dupatta by Zara Shahjahan reads:
وہ دریا دیس سمندر تھی
جو تیرے میرے اندر تھی
وہ سوندھی مٹی سندھڑی کی
وہ لڑکی لال قلندر تھی
An Instagram post by Zara Shahjahan offered some more details:
Bakhtawar’s mehndi dupatta was embroidered with the Urdu poem, ‘Woh ladki laal qalandar’, dedicated to her late mother Benazir Bhutto.
Speaking to a local media outlet, the designer shared that the “lehnga had patchworks of Sindhi embroidery and mirrors” on it. She further revealed that the embellishments on the shirt “were worked with flowers and at the center of every flower, we embroidered Bakhtawar and Mahmood’s names.”
“It was all done very minutely which is why it isn’t easily visible in the photographs,” she added.
There is no doubt that she put a lot of thought into planning and executing her engagement. And we did not expect anything less from her wedding celebrations.
Mahmood also shared a picture of himself tying his turban saying: “Gentlemen always tie your pugree.”
