It’s not very often that I see a wedding dress that I actually like. Not that I’ve ever really looked at purchasing a bridal gown for myself. But you can’t help notice wedding pictures of celebrities in magazines and friends on facebook. Most dresses I’ve seen are hideously frou frou. Not to mention expensive. I just can’t believe some people would spend $20,000 on something that they wear only once for a few hours!
After my gym friend Aseel Mohammad al Baghdadi got married to her sweetheart Andre Senaratne at Markovina Vineyard Estate on 12 March 2016, she uploaded her wedding photos on Facebook. I was simply blown away by the beauty of her gown. I told her that it was even more beautiful than Kate Middleton’s wedding dress. Many of her other friends also commented on how beautiful her dress was, so when I decided to launch my own lifestyle magazine, I simply had to include an article about Aseel’s amazing dress. Of course, it helps that Aseel is absolutely gorgeous and would look stunning no matter what she wore.
