Pooja Gopalani – Manish Malhotra
Discover her transformation with WeddingSutra on Location at Manish Malhotra’s couture store
As part of our initiative ‘WeddingSutra on Location’, we invited three brides-to-be for a unique experience at Manish Malhotra’s couture store in Khar (West), 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 last of the three-part series, bride-to-be Pooja Gopalani blogs about her experience with WeddingSutra on Location at Manish Malhotra.
“Being a wedding photographer myself, I’ve been following WeddingSutra for a long time. Many of my clients are big fans of WeddingSutra too, and its literally their ‘bible’ during the wedding planning process. With my own wedding coming up, I visit the blog almost every day and that’s when I came across ‘WeddingSutra on Location’. I loved the concept, and the thought of being in front of the camera (for a change) seemed quite exciting. So I wrote to them and was thrilled when I got an invite for WeddingSutra on Location at Manish Malhotra’s store.
When I entered Manish Malhotra’s store I was greeted by the WeddingSutra team who introduced me to Wedding Planner Neha Shroff. She was very sweet and friendly and enquired about my wedding functions after which she helped me check out some of the creations on display. I liked many creations from Manish’s stunning collection but what caught my attention was a magenta raw silk lehenga. I loved the intricate pitta work on it, and it looked both beautiful and glamorous. With Neha’s help, I paired the outfit with a pair of chaand balis and a maang tikka from Amrapali, and the overall look was just perfect.
Next, I met Ojas Rajani for my hair and makeup. I’ve always been a ‘no makeup’ person, so I left it to her to decide on the look. After around an hour when I saw the transformation I was stunned! I loved the way Ojas highlighted my eyes and styled my hair. In one hour my perception about makeup changed and I was convinced about the wonders makeup can do when done properly!
It was now time for the photo shoot with Wedding Photographer Dev Purbiya. It was an amazing experience altogether to be in front of the camera and I had lots of fun posing as Dev captured some candid shots.
I am so glad that ‘WeddingSutra on Location’ happened to me. The whole experience was fabulous, and helped me overcome many biases and appreciate newer trends in bridal styles. Thank you WeddingSutra for putting this together.”
