As they embark on a new journey, celebrity couple Randeep Hooda and Lin Laishram’s pre-wedding festivities commenced with a temple visit in Imphal, Manipur. Randeep and Lin are all set to tie the knot on November 29 in an intimate ceremony surrounded by close family and friends.

Lin who hails from Manipur looked ethereal as she adorned a custom-made silk Inaphee (dupatta) in magenta pink with Lamthang Khuthat motifs, which is mainly used in traditional Manipuri Inaphee’s. She paired it with a Phanek Mayek Naibi (wrap-around) in magenta pink which also featured a rose motif at the bottom.

The Inaphee and Phanek were customised for Lin Laishram in bright colours since in Manipur culture, the colour pink, red, and yellow are considered good luck for new beginnings.

The vibrant silk ensemble came with a matching blouse. Designed by Manipur-based fashion designer Arbin Tonjam, the ensemble was designed keeping in mind Lin’s love for simple designs. Her fresh and flawless makeup was done by Jony Haobijam, which complemented Lin’s charming personality.

Speaking to News18 exclusively, Arbin Tonjam shares, “The Inaphee and Phanek were customised for Lin [Laishram] in bright colours since in our culture, the colours pink, red, and yellow are considered as good luck for new beginnings. It took me 40-50 days to complete these two sets. The silk magenta pink blouse was kept simple as our bride [Lin] loves simple designs.”

The couple Randeep Hooda and Lin Laishram visited the Shree Govindajee Temple ahead of the wedding.
