With WeddingSutra on Location- Kajal Somaiya
As part of our initiative ‘WeddingSutra on Location’, we invited four brides-to-be for a unique experience at Neeta Lulla’s Studio in Santacruz (West), Mumbai. Starting with a Style Consultation, a Makeover and a Photo shoot, each of the participants got to interact with some of the best names in Bridal & Wedding services.
Here in the third of the four-part series, bride-to-be Kajal Somaiya, who is getting married in Mumbai on February 14th, blogs about her experience with WeddingSutra on Location at Neeta Lulla’s Studio.
“I’ve been an avid follower of WeddingSutra right from the time my wedding date was set. As might be the case with most brides-to-be, I too was quite confused about what to wear, so WeddingSutra has been hugely helpful with ideas on bridal wear, makeup and accessories. While browsing through their blog one day, I stumbled upon a bride-to-be’s experience at WeddingSutra on Location, and I thought it was the perfect opportunity to get some clarity. I reached out to WeddingSutra and luckily I was invited to their next On Location shoot at Neeta Lulla.
I reached Neeta Lulla’s Studio at the scheduled time, 11:00 am, very excited, but also a little unsure and nervous. I met the WeddingSutra team, and all my doubts disappeared once they introduced me to the warm and friendly experts they had invited. Neha Shroff, the Wedding Planner, first helped me look at Neeta Lulla’s bridal line. I told her I wanted to look like a traditional bride, and wear something a bride would wear for the wedding ceremony. After trying a few options I decided to wear a pink lehenga with gold vintage embroidery teamed with a green brocade choli. We then looked at the exquisite Jewellery collection from Azva, and with Neha’s suggestion, I wore a chunky necklace with a set of bangles for a ‘heavily adorned bride’ look.
Next, I got my hair & makeup done by the fabulous make-up artist Ojas Rajani. When you have her to do your makeover, how can you look anything short of beautiful and glamorous! I was so happy when I saw the final look she gave me, especially the way she highlighted my eyes.
After I was ‘ready’ it was time for the photo shoot with Candid Wedding Photographer Dev Purbiya. With his friendly nature and smile, I felt very relaxed and was my natural self as he clicked away. I left Neeta Lulla’s store all happy and excited, not only because I had lots of fun, but because I felt better prepared for my big day.”
