In the first of this three-part series, bride-to-be Dhvani Doshi tells us about her experience with WeddingSutra On Location at the Vivanta by Taj President, Mumbai.
Bride-to be Dhvani Doshi’s dewy bridal look designed by makeup ace Ojas Rajani
“I first heard about the WeddingSutra on Location series through a friend who had been a part of their editorial shoots. It was just two days after I’d been proposed to but I’d already scoured the site to learn more about their shoots, the bridal must-haves. What got me really excited was the fact that every little aspect of your trousseau, your makeup and look, would be recommended and personalized by industry experts. It would be enough to make you feel like an absolute princess! After hearing my friend’s story and seeing pictures on the website, I applied to be a part of this wonderful experience!
We started with lehenga trials. The team helped me pick a beautiful hot pink and mint green Anubhav and Sneha creation from Flyrobe that suited my petite frame perfectly. Apart from the fact that it looked stunning, it was also surprisingly lightweight and extremely comfortable. I like fuss – free clothing and this would make it perfect to move-around unencumbered, enjoy myself, meet people, without having to handle a million drapes! I thought this lehenga would make for a perfect mehndi outfit considering the bright colors and the comfort factor.
For jewellery I had my eyes set on an exquisite Azva Mag Mala in gold which beautifully complemented my bright-toned lehenga. I opted for a kada with intricate carvings to give a subtle update to traditional bangles.

Knowing how big WeddingSutra is, I knew that the team would curate the best for their brides. It’s every bride’s dream to be dolled up by Ojas Rajani and I felt extremely lucky to have had the chance to be groomed by the master himself! He understood my skin complexion perfectly and used the most beautiful color combinations that complemented my skin type. My makeup looked natural yet very glamorous.
I must admit, I was quite camera conscious and partly overwhelmed by the photoshoot. But to my delight, the photographer, Ronny made me feel extremely comfortable throughout the photo session. He made me feel really pretty and confident about myself; his tips on various poses are definitely going to help me in the future. Post the photo shoot I felt more confident and am sure, it will reflect in my own wedding pictures as well!
In all, this WeddingSutra experience has definitely prepped me for the wedding madness that is yet to come my way for which I will forever be grateful!”
The three brides-to-be share a light-hearted moment together.
Since the look was designed to be luminous and quite glamorous, Ojas decided to use the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Foundation as the base to even out Dhvani’s skin. He then added a slight brush of the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Wet and Dry Compact around her T-zone to set the base completely. He created a bronzed look for the eyes with the brown and gold shades from the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette in French Rose to give her a soft smoky eye. To bring definition, Ojas then used the Lakmé Absolute Precision Eye Artist Kajal in black and added copious layers of the Lakmé Absolute Flutter Secrets Volume Mascara to make her eyes stand out. A slight touch of the Lakmé Absolute Moon-lit Highlighter to the high points of the cheeks along with a generous brush of the Lakme Absolute Bronzer in ‘Sunkissed not only warmed up her dewy skin tone but also softly contoured her cheeks. The finishing touches were a hint of the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Lip Shimmer in Tropical Shine to add a pop of color and complete the overall glamorous look.
