Anuja Somany – Tarun Tahiliani
Discover the transformation of four lucky brides-to-be with WeddingSutra on Location at Tarun Tahiliani
As part of our initiative ‘WeddingSutra on Location’, we invited four brides-to-be for a unique experience at Tarun Tahiliani’s couture studio in Colaba, 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 Anuja Somany, shares her experience with WeddingSutra on Location.
“I came across the concept of WeddingSutra on Location a year ago when my friend was a part of the shoot, and back then, I couldn’t understand much about the concept. But now, since I’m tying the knot I’ve been so stressed about how to go about dressing for my big day, and I couldn’t help but realize how a shoot like this would be so apt for me! So I emailed the WeddingSutra team expressing my interest, and when I actually received a reply inviting me for the next On location shoot at Tarun Tahiliani’s studio, I was beyond thrilled!
I’m not a typical ‘girly girl’ but when I stepped into the studio that day and saw the gorgeous Tarun Tahiliani outfits on display, I couldn’t wait to be dolled up. First up, I had to choose an outfit to wear, which was a quick process. After looking around and considering the team’s suggestions, I selected a pink lehenga with intricate gold and silver embroidery, and I loved it as soon as I tried it on! The team then suggested trying on a spectacular uncut jewellery set from Tanshiq, which had some pink work on it and which matched my ensemble perfectly.
Next, I got my makeup & hair done by Makeup Maestro Ojas Rajani. Talking to Ojas during my makeover taught me a lot about colors, what would suit me and the products I should use. She gave me some handy tips for daily make up too! Time passed by quickly and before I realized, I was beautified with striking smokey eyes and voluminous soft curls.
Now that I was fully ready it was time for my photo shoot with Photographer Shreya Sen. Her simplicity and grace put me at ease, and posing for pictures turned out to be an enjoyable session. In all, the WeddingSutra team gave me the opportunity for a lifetime- a chance to interact one-on-one with different wedding experts under one roof!’
