A reception is typically the last event in the wedding celebrations lineup and is also a perfect occasion to live it up as a bride before stepping into married life. Needless to say, all eyes are on the bride at a reception, where she can depart from the strictly traditional look. From figure-hugging couture gowns and ruffled sarees to contemporary bling, reception looks are all about vivacious versatility.

In the latest edition of Style Spotting, we explored sensational jewellery by Varuna D Jani Fine Jewellery. Conceived a decade ago, the brand is acclaimed for its bold take on precious jewellery. Today, Varuna is renowned as the mind behind pieces that exemplify striking creativity, unparalleled craftsmanship and proven quality. She creates her designs after studying her customers' tastes, lifestyles, and wishes to wear their bridal bling pieces in innovative ways even after the wedding. She designs jewellery to match an ensemble, and not overpower it. Customers are invited for a personalized session with Varuna, who then offers them curated and highly customized bespoke jewellery.

For leading Indian designer and bride-to-be Sonaakshi Raaj, the gates of Varuna's store opened and transported her to a diamond-encrusted wonderland. Over the course of her consultation, Varuna identified Sonaakshi's style to be contemporary yet trendsetting, especially on a milestone occasion. She then created two styles that would add to the elegance of her reception ensemble. The first look showcased a profusion of dazzling diamonds necklace set in white and yellow gold, with multiple layers of fancy cut diamonds fixed in cascading lines. A ruby and diamond ring designed to spread over two fingers was reminiscent of 'The Great Gatsby' era, while looped gold polish earrings stood out with clusters of fancy-cut diamonds. The sultry second look comprised stacked diamond bracelets in three shades of gold, a gold polish diamond encrusted ring with a spectacular bluestone, and five-dimensional diamond earrings.

The jewellery paired perfectly with the crimson jewelled couture gown designed by Sonaakshi herself. Hand-woven with intricate embroidery, beads, and stonework, the gown also featured a sweetheart neckline and thigh-high slit. The cut and fit sculpted Sonaakshi's figure elegantly and created the perfect silhouette for a chic reception soiree.

Sonaakshi's makeup by Neha Shah was all about exuding a sophisticated glow. Neha gave her defined brows, bold lashes, and a delicate pout; and styled her open tresses in soft flowing waves.

It was a beautiful day for the memorable shoot, captured in the serene environs of Taj Santacruz, Mumbai by Knotting Bells.
