As part of our initiative WeddingSutra On Location, we invited four brides-to-be for a unique experience at Satya Paul in Juhu, Mumbai. Starting with a Style Consultation, followed by a Makeover and a Photo Shoot, each of the participants got an opportunity to interact with some of the best names in Bridal & Wedding services.
Here, in the third of the four-part series, bride-to-be Ana Kapur blogs about her experience with WeddingSutra on Location at Satya Paul.
“‘This sounds like great fun!’ I thought to myself when I saw photos of brides-to-be at WeddingSutra on Location. And I typed in my application on a whim. To my surprise and delight, I heard back from WeddingSutra inviting me to On Location, and even better, it was being held at Satya Paul’s store. I love their collection and I was excited by the idea of getting the opportunity to get styled in one of their bridal creations.
Once I was On Location, it was an amazing experience right from the word go. The team I was introduced to was accommodating and helpful; we first started by discussing what I could wear. They took my ideas, and we tried a couple of outfits and looks, before finalizing on a red lehenga-saree. For me it was a new and stylish concept and I quite liked it.
Next, I met Make-up Artist Recinda Martis who was easy to chat with, she had plenty of tips on what look would work for me, and how I should approach my final look. She recommended I go for simple lined eyes and bright red lips. It was a bolder look than anything I have tried before; but the whole idea was about experimenting with what works on you, so I thought, ‘lets go for it!’ And finally, I think the look turned out great!
Then it was time to do my hair. Hairstylists Sangeeta and Ishita Khanna gave me a retro up-do which I loved.
The makeover was followed by a photo shoot with Wedding Photographers Amit and Priyanka Barot. Patiently, they shared valuable tips and suggested how to strike different poses and then clicked away.
Overall, my experience at WeddingSutra on Location was not only enjoyable but a fabulous learning process too. Thank you for the opportunity WeddingSutra!”
