Viral bridal photoshoot of a cancer survivor is a must-see

69

Instagrammer Vashnavi Poovanedran recently took Instagram by a strom when she posted her bridal photoshoot after her recovery from Cancer.

The Photoshoot was titled ‘The Bold Indian Bride’ and she spoke about her how she managed to defeat Cancer not just once but twice.

Along with the pictures she wrote:“Cancer treatments have given us a lot of limitations, robbed us of beauty and taken away our confidence. As little girls, we have always dreamt of what our big day will be like and how we would look like as a bride,”
“But having cancer has stripped some of us from fulfilling these dreams. A lot of cancer survivors have postponed or even cancelled their big day,” she wrote.
“For me, as a cancer survivor, I dreamt the day I marry the love of my life. Dreamt, what it is like to look like a bride, to feel like a bride. Having gone through cancer treatments (chemotherapy, etc.), losing my hair was by far the hardest thing I ever had to go through,”

Poovanedran, who is a motivational speaker and dancer, wrote in a post.
“I felt that I was not beautiful enough to be loved and was not beautiful enough to look or ever feel like a bride. Hair, it is our ‘crowning glory’ and having that taken away from you is devastating. But we choose to accept what we have, appreciate what we are and welcome what is coming,” she wrote.

In a message for fellow cancer survivors, she wrote, “Cancer has affected us in so many different ways however good or bad, we don’t and will not let it control our lives.”

Portrait tips, just say something silly to crack them up, or maybe my models just naturally hear my voice and start laughing, not sure which is which. I love portraits with the dead stare, as much as I love portraits with laughter! . . @naviindranpillai told me her idea was to portray herself as a bride, but has got loads of complications to deal with, and this bride is going to be an example, that life still can go on if you put your heart to it. This bride, made the whole concept effortless for me! . . .

Taking the leap! . . The next person Navi got on board was @pattushastra of course! I knew they could never go wrong with the saree selection and I just love their professionalism. . . . And here we have the bride jumping in joy mode. Once a dancer, always a dancer I guess! She also wanted this idea to be an inspiration not only for cancer patients but to those who are having a tough time . . .
