WhatKnot Wedding Photographers

One of the must-have shots of your wedding album is where your head is tilted back and the photographer captures your beautiful maang tikka and eye makeup. Posing for it is simple and gives you an ethereal image of your bridal jewellery. Maang tikka images are such a favourite among wedding photographers that we decided to showcase a gallery of different designs and photos. We hope it will give you inspiration for your own bridal trousseau and bridal shoot.

1. Kundan Maang Tikka with a dash of Emerald Green 


You can always add colour to your jewellery with precious and semi-precious stones but this emerald green takes this maang tikka up a notch. We can’t emphasise enough on the fact that the green in this maang tikka fills it with life. Pair it with a contrasting outfit and get yourself a striking ensemble. And posing like you’re putting on an earring has always been a classic.

2. Kundan Maang Tikka with Pearl Matha Patti

The Cheesecake Project

What we love most about this maang tikka is its shape. It is perfect for brides with a rectangular face as it will also give her appearance a softer look. And pearls have always added a regal touch to every look that they are a part of, making them perfect for the D-Day avatar. The pose is a fail-proof one making it easy for you to look effortlessly gorgeous.

Who would've thought that a rustic gold maang tikka could look so chic and perfect for the wedding day! With a Kundan centre and a pearl drop, it can subtly amp up any bridal lehenga. Pair it with offbeat lehenga colours and you’ll get yourself a statement look. Again, the pose is as classic as it gets.

Of course, the maang tikka is not black and white but what makes it stand out from all other maang tikka images is the fact that the picture is black and white. This image makes it look like elegance has been freed of the trap of time and has been held carefully in this photographer’s shot. The dangling pearls make it even more appealing to look at.
