Here comes the goddess bride…

Pinterest mood board or not, you’ve always had a long-held vision of what your big day should look like. The grandeur, the location, the décor are secondary—what ties everything together for you is authenticity. You couldn’t dream of saying ‘I do’ in a setting that isn’t true to your personality. It is this very quality that unites every Kariena May bride. She is modern, confident and original. An absolute goddess, she thoroughly understands that marriage is synonymous with being inclusive…of the habits and routines of her partner, their family , friends, and even pets! And as she walks down the aisle towards her happily ever after, she’s looking forward to it all. She wants her wedding to be a celebration of not just their love thus far, but of all the joys and adventures that the future holds.

Kariena May is a bridal couture label whose ethos is steeped in modern classics that inspire confidence and elegance. Meticulously handcrafted gowns that empower the bride to feel like her best self on her big day is our uncontested metier.
The brand is a labour of love of Anjali Moorjani—a creative aesthete who uses her training in Indian classical dance and theatre production to combine the ethereal with tangible beauty. She showcased Kariena May’s first collection of bridal couture, jewellery and accessories at Knot Couture Show in New York City in April 2018. An ardent believer in the sanctity of marital partnerships, Anjali modelled the brand name on her husband’s initials as her tribute to the institution of marriage.
Unsurpassed quality and superior craftsmanship are the hallmark of every Kariena May gown. Luxe tulle and chiffons collide with fine appliqué work, intricate thread embroidery and Swarovski embellishments to enhance our delicate silhouettes with time-honoured elegance. Kariena May’s all-encompassing bridal line also includes handcrafted wedding jewellery, complementing bridal accessories and shapewear.
At Kariena May, we create bespoke wedding looks that are more than just another white gown—every luxurious creation from our atelier is a gateway into a new life. Our endeavour is to be enduringly inclusive, and to help brides from varied cultures, lifestyles and walks of lives to cross over this threshold in their stylish best. While one-of-a-kind, all our designs boast a common spirit—classic yet sophisticated bridal wear that resonates with our discerning patrons’ contemporary lifestyles and modern mindsets.
The Kariena May experience is exceedingly inclusive, specifically curated to bring to life the inimitable vision of our brides. Exemplifying the power of two, we are all about collaborative partnerships, not unlike marriage itself. Our multi-faceted approach involves working closely with the bride from sketch to styling. Be it choosing the right tone of ivory, the layers of tulle, the fall of your veil or the placement of the embellishments, we encourage customising every little detail.

Kariena May’s offerings extend well beyond just the wedding dress of your dreams. For starters, every gown comes fitted with tailor-made, form-enhancing shapewear. Our bespoke bridal jewellery collection too is handcrafted to complement our gowns, and stays true to the overall brand aesthetic of creating modern classics. Choose from our selection of accessories like designer pashmina stoles, brooches, tiaras, hair jewels, fascinators, garters and bridal belts to lend further flourish to your repertoire. We also consult our brides on hair, make-up and overall styling—every element is equally important to us.
