Last updated on: August 22, 2019 12:01 IST

It's been 12 years since Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai got married but we got treated to never-seen-before pictures of their grand wedding recently.

Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla are celebrating 33 years of being in the couture business, and they shared lovely pictures of the bridal designs they created for the star couple.

They also posted pictures of the Bachchan family -- including Amitabh dancing with his wife, Jaya! -- on the wedding day on April 20, 2007, as well as the ceremonies leading to it.

 

'A wedding beyond a fairy-tale!' the designers post on their Instagram page.

This picture, taken at the sangeet ceremony, has Abhishek wearing a blue silver brocade short sherwani adorned with gota resham, stones and pearls, while Aishwarya wears an embroidered pastel resham ghagra set with sequins and stones along with a dupatta.

Three months of preparation went behind this grand event, but it was, as they write, 'a truly precious, personal and pleasant experience.'

 

Are Abhishek and Aishwarya taking lessons from the seniors?

Amitabh and Jaya take to the dance floor, and look as glamorous as the bridal couple.

 

'A groom so dapper, we continue to swoon even after all this time!' they write.

Abhishek's sherwani, at his wedding, 'was realised in a fabulous geometric Vasli pattern'. 

'The inner kurta had self-tailoring and gota details with intricately embroidered Zardozi borders. His jooties too, featured indulgent embroidery and his safa was made of Jamdhani tissue that had dreamy gota details,' they describe.

 

Jaya Bachchan performs a ritual on the wedding day.

 

Three generations dressed up in 'pristine perfection'!

Amitabh and Jaya, along with their daughter Shweta, turn their attention to their grandchild, Navya Naveli.

 

'The entire Bachchan family wore Vasli for the nuptials, their meticulously handcrafted ensembles being an ode to unsurpassed elegance,' the designers write.

They describe it further: 'Majestic embroideries in silver and gold Vasli as well as resham lent regal grace and divine auspiciousness to the understated ivory, off-white and beige palette.'
