A look at the ceremonies and Sonaakshi Raaj’s wedding outfits that gave us inspiration all through the year.

This week, we feature Sonaakshi Raaj and Nikhil Merani’s wedding that took place in Thailand. Celebrity designer & Bollywood stylist Sonaakshi Raaj & restaurateur Nikhil Merani’s wedding at Avani, Hua Hin, Thailand was a grand affair with pastel shades and stunning decor. The stylist knew how to play around with colours and her outfits were the talk of the town – each detail was meticulously planned out and created with perfection in mind. Sonaakshi as a bride looked spectacular throughout her wedding ceremony with each look outdoing the other.
