Meghavi, Kalyan Jewellers, Vashi
This session of 'WeddingSutra on Location' was all about the might of white with bride-to-be Meghavi’s Gujarati bridal makeover.
WeddingSutra’s most popular bridal initiative, ‘WeddingSutra On Location,’ was held at the Kalyan Jewellers showroom at Vashi, Navi Mumbai, one of the most loved jewellery brands catering to millennial brides. In the third of this three-part series, bride-to-be Meghavi was treated to a gorgeous bridal makeover that involved designer fashion, standout jewellery, and distinctive makeup.
Talking about her experience of being a part of this series, bride Meghavi says, “I was very excited to be a part of ‘WeddingSutra On Location,’ and I simply cannot deny that the experience was better in more ways than I had imagined! We kickstarted the day with stylist Shikha Dhandhia selecting traditional Gujarati jewellery for my look. The outfit picked by her for my makeover was a heavily embellished lehenga by celebrity designer Dolly J. Makeup artist and hairstylist Sejal Sachnakul, and Bhagyasheee Tanwar, worked on my face and hair respectively and created the most perfect Gujarati bridal look I have ever seen. My makeover was shot to perfection by ace photographer Nishchay of Reflexion by Nishchay Shinde who captured all the aspects of my look effortlessly.”
As Meghavi’s Gujarati bridal makeover required the bride to wear an outfit dominated by the color white, the jewellery chosen for her was also dominated by white diamonds. A diamond necklace set from Kalyan Jewellers’ Muhurat Collection with a bright emerald placed in the center added a perfect pop of color. For that traditional glam look, the bride also wore a Damani which is a variant of the quintessential ‘matha patti’ (forehead ornament). A few diamond bangles along with the famed Bangadi from Kalyan Jewellers completed her Gujarati bridal look. Right from her mangalsutra to her wedding ring, Meghavi was an epitome of the quintessential Kalyan Jewellers ‘Muhurat Bride.‘
Shikha picked a gorgeous white Dolly J lehenga for Meghavi which perfectly replicated the look of a traditional white Panetar. The lehenga was heavily embellished with an intricate studded pattern throughout its flare. The blouse and mesh dupatta also featured lovely minute detailing.
Talking about her face and hair, the bride says, “Hairstylist Bhagyashree twisted my hair into a simple yet classic bun which was embellished with white blooms. Makeup artist Sejal crafted a very modern and bold look on my face to balance the muted tones of the outfit. My bold lips and smokey eyes suited my face really well.”
Thrilled with the entire process of the shoot, Meghavi shares, “I really loved working with Nishchay. He is absolutely professional and knows how to make brides feel extremely comfortable in front of the lens. He was also very quick while shooting and his friendly nature helped me ease up and learn all the poses quickly.”
Sejal started crafting Meghavi’s look with the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Foundation to give her face a flawless finish. The Lakmé Absolute White Intense Wet and Dry Compact was used to completely set her foundation base. Since this look was all about adding color to her face, Sejal used the Lakme Absolute Illuminating Eyeshadow Palette in Royal Persia to highlight her lids with deep, inky tints. She then added generous coats of the Lakmé Absolute Flutter Secrets Volume Mascara to give the bride’s eyes a soft smoky look. Meghavi’s Gujarati makeover was completed with the Lakmé Absolute Matte Revolution in Dynamite Berry for a rich yet weightless matte finish.
