Bhavika Mehta, Jade Garden, Mumbai
Experience the gorgeous makeover of bride Bhavika along with her BFF as they get ready for her big day ahead!
As a part of our initiative, WeddingSutra On Location, we invited two brides and their bridesmaids for a unique experience at Jade Garden, Mumbai. These young women were treated to a style consultation and makeover followed by a photo shoot. They also had the opportunity to interact with some of the most prominent names in the bridal and wedding services industries.
In a dress rehearsal of the big day, that included evolving their wedding looks, make up and attire, a special chance to explore the stunning creations from Rivaah by Tanishq with a focus on jewellery traditional to Maharashtrian brides. Dreamcatchers Photography captured this Navri and her Karavli in all their gorgeousness.
Here, in the second of the two-part series, bride-to-be Bhavika Mehta along with her bridesmaid Prachi share their experience with WeddingSutra on Location at Jade Garden featuring exquisite jewellery from Rivaah by Tanishq for the Marathi bride.
“Our day with WeddingSutra On Location was an amazing experience. We’d never done a shoot like this one and we were really looking forward to it. To begin with, Jade Garden itself is so beautiful, a sight for sore eyes! It was perfect for the Marathi bride-theme.
We had a stunning range of outfits from AZA Fashions to choose from. I wore a purple lehenga by Anushree Reddy and it was love at first sight! The intricate embellishments stood out on the color of the fabric and it was a breathtaking, opulent outfit. Dream attire for a bride.
Everyone knows I love Lakmé products. As a bride, I came to the shoot expecting to look a certain way. To have that look executed with products from a brand I trust was perfect. The final look created by Kinjal Joshi was everything I imagined and the lipstick color enhanced my natural features.
No bridal look is complete without jewellery and we had a choice of flawless ornaments. The range from Rivaah by Tanishq was stunning. My favorite was the necklace I wore but I also loved the paatli bangles with their intricate designs, the earrings, the maang tikka and the traditional nath. With my hair in a bun complete with fresh flowers, it all came together.
All in all, this shoot was a makeover in the truest sense. Team WeddingSutra were kind and courteous and constantly extended their support to us. And then, the chance of doing this shoot with a karavli was a dream; in my case, a dream that came true right before my wedding.”
Bhavika made a flawless Maharashtrian bride with a few modern accents. The Anushree Reddy bridal attire was accessorized with stunning ornaments from Rivaah by Tanishq which creates ranges to suit different cultural aesthetics from within the country.
Since this shoot had a Maharashtrian bridal theme, Bhavika chose ornaments that are worn by Maharashtrian brides; an opulent necklace studded with precious stones and with intricate detailing, earrings, a maang tikka and a nath with a similar design. The paatli bangles Bhavika wore were encrusted with precious stones as well.
The style of visage imagined for the bride was a subtle one, enhancing her natural features. With a soft foundation, a little drama was added to the eyes, highlights on her cheekbones and her lips were allowed to be the hero of the look. Lakme Absolute Matte Ultimate lip color in Delicious Plum – perfect for our endless summers and the Indian skin tone was the color of choice for Bhavika. The season was celebrated with flowers in the bride’s hair.
Bridesmaid Prachi wore a blue Tarun Tahiliani sari encrusted with studs, reminiscent of a midnight sky. Her attire was teamed with jewellery in yellow and white gold. The necklace and earrings were unconventional and therefore versatile enough for not just saris but anarkalis too. Her makeup was subtle and refreshing; the makeup artist chose to use kohl along the eyes balanced out with muted lips.
