Prerna Agarwal – Oman
Discover her transformation at WeddingSutra on Location in Oman
WeddingSutra took its most popular bridal initiative, WeddingSutra on Location to the gorgeous vistas and warm hospitality of the Sultanate of Oman. The two resplendent luxury properties where the shoot was hosted- Al Bustan Palace, a Ritz-Carlton Hotel, and Shangri-La’s Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa, combined with the undulating Omani dunes, beautiful beaches and dramatic mountain backdrops made for a unforgettable wedding rehearsal experience for 3 lucky WeddingSutra readers.
Here, in the first of the three-part series, bride-to-be Prerna Agarwal writes about her unique experience with WeddingSutra on Location in Oman.
“Oman is not the first place that comes to my mind when I think of a travel destination, but since I put foot in that gorgeous country, there was not even a minute when I was not wowed by the scenic beauty or the lovely people that live there.
Team WeddingSutra selected for us dreamy outfits by Anita Dongre, Neeta Lulla and Monisha Jaising. Each outfit was a masterpiece in itself and I really wish I could wear all of them for my own wedding. The jewellery pieces by Isharya and Mehtaphor were splendid with a creativity in design that I have not seen before.
I couldn’t choose between Al Bustan Palace and Shangri-La’s Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa, both vying to be my favorite locations. And the magnificent views made for an amazing shoot. Candid Photographers Jhalak and Ashwin (Shades Photography) were great fun to work with and they made me feel very special always. There was not even one boring moment with this power packed duo around.
This trip was made special with two main ingredients; Oman and team WeddingSutra who made us feel at home all the time! Special thanks to the amazing makeup artist Amrita Sanghavi who transformed us into fairies each day. Because of this shoot, now I know how to carry myself better at my own wedding. This was actually a dress rehearsal for me and the other beautiful brides. Thank you WeddingSutra for this fantastic opportunity.”
