October marks the onset of the wedding and festive season in India. A month in which numerous campaigns and collections are launched by various jewellers and fashion designers to tap in to the wedding fever, one jeweller has chosen to offer brides-to-be something different in terms of inspiration. 

Nirav Modi, one of the most highly regarded jewellers in India, has put together a book featuring wedding ensembles by 12 of the country's most sought-after fashion designers, complemented by his most prized creations. The result is a luxurious coffee table book that every bride-to-be will want to pore over, slowly, page by glossy page.

'The Essence of a Bride' is a first-of-its-kind bridal style bible, created in collaboration with celebrated fashion designers including Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla, Tarun Tahiliani, Gauri & Nainika, Gaurav Gupta and Ritu Kumar. Shot at the magnificent Baroda Palace, the book captures perfectly a bride's moods and expressions. An amalgamation of the best jewellery, bridalwear, photography and styling, it is the definite style guide for a luxury wedding.

"The essence of this book is to celebrate a woman on her very special day," explains Nirav Modi. "It is for a woman in search of excellence and elegance. Bringing together the best couturiers of the country and a love for jewellery, the book presents regal looks complemented with timeless jewels for the radiant bride."
