Cancer treatments has given us alot of limitations, has robbed us from beauty and taken away our confidence. As a little girl, we have always dreamt of what our big day will be like and how we would look as a bride. But having cancer has stripped some of us from fulfilling these dreams. Alot of cancer survivors has postponed or even cancelled their big day. For me, as a cancer survivor, I dreamt the day I marry the love of my life. Dreamt, what it is like to look like a bride, to feel like a bride. Having gone through cancer treatments (chemotherapy, etc.), losing my hair was by far the hardest thing I ever had to go through. I felt that I was not beautiful enough to be loved and was not beautiful enough to look or ever feel like a bride. Hair, it is our 'crowning glory' and having that taken away from you is devastating. But we choose to accept what we have, appreciate what we are and welcome what is coming. So here it is, *Bold Indian Bride* ****************************************************** Bangles & Bridal Anklet : @desirec.my Silk Saree & Bridal Veil : @pattushastra Photography: @celesgrd Assisted by: @shi.vaa90 Make-up & Styling : @blushbeautybeyond Assisted by : @emmanuel_ravi98 Henna: @bdazzled_beauty #kissedbycancer #cancersucks #cancersurvivor #youngadultcancer #letsfcancer ** A huge thank you to the team.

Taking the leap! . . The next person Navi got on board was @pattushastra of course! I knew they could never go wrong with the saree selection and I just love their professionalism. . . . And here we have the bride jumping in joy mode. Once a dancer, always a dancer I guess! She also wanted this idea to be an inspiration not only for cancer patients but to those who are having a tough time . . .

The pictures went super-viral in no time, the make-up artist at Blush, Beauty and Beyond opened up about how they were able to achieve the perfect look for the bride. They revealed :

The first challenge was to create & carve eyebrows on a canvas that have lost their own,” the makeup artist wrote, adding, “I had to draw individual hair strokes to mimic the appearance of real brow hair & to ensure it didn’t look too fake.⁣”

Portrait tips, just say something silly to crack them up, or maybe my models just naturally hear my voice and start laughing, not sure which is which. I love portraits with the dead stare, as much as I love portraits with laughter! . . @naviindranpillai told me her idea was to portray herself as a bride, but has got loads of complications to deal with, and this bride is going to be an example, that life still can go on if you put your heart to it. This bride, made the whole concept effortless for me! . . .

However, the biggest challenge was the headpiece, as she lost all her hair because of her treatment. They revealed :

“The next challenge was to choose and fix a headpiece, without a single hairpin involved. This wasn’t easy but I’m so glad we figured it out,” 

The pictures are beautiful and Vaishnavi is truly an inspiration for many out there, who are fighting with this disease. She looks mesmerizing as a bride.

Here, have a look at a few more pictures of her :
