WeddingSutra, in collaboration with AZVA and Lakmé Absolute, brings you WeddingSutra on Location – a curated showcase of top bridal trends and style statements from some of the WeddingSutra Favorites.

WeddingSutra’s most popular bridal initiative ‘WeddingSutra On Location’ took place in the wide, open spaces of the JW Marriott Mumbai Sahar. In the first of this three-part series, bride-to-Riya gives wings to her imagination to achieve the bridal look of her dreams.

A wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime celebration that deserves the finest – whether it is clothing, jewelry or just the entire experience.

Riya got to enjoy a little amuse-bouche of her upcoming big day with a chance to play dress up in creation by designer duo Chamee and Palak. The handcrafted collections from AZVA offered her a choice of baubles that went perfectly with her clothes. Then, makeup artist Sejal Sachnakul of Makeovers by Sejal created for her a soft visage that exuded a romantic appeal using products by Lakmé Absolute and styled her hair to seal the deal. As Riya indulged in the day of her dreams, photographer Kartik Bhagat of Dream Diaries captured her moods and expressions deftly.

Sparkling like a celebration, Riya picked a champagne lehenga by Chamee and Palak that, when worn, looked like it had been made especially for her. Thrilled, she said, “The outfit was just gorgeous. The lehenga came with a cape, which gave it a modern twist. The color was so pretty and enhanced my complexion. What was remarkable was that despite the intricate embroidery that covered the fabric, the outfit was lightweight and easy to move around in; a combination that will be welcomed by every bride!”

The contemporary notes of the outfit were perfectly tempered with traditional Indian jewelry by AZVA – a refreshing combination of aesthetics. Inspired by Marwad motifs and details the gold hasli Riya wore was ornamented with foliage converging in a center motif of seven trapezoid kundan stones set within a green enamel border. The piece was finished with a cluster of gold beads at the bottom, a row of large gold granules on top and intricate gold relief work created with finesse. To go with the necklace she picked out a ring with a center of a circular kundan surrounded by seven red stones to celebrate the seven vows. With delicate petals of stone and tiny, layered spikes, the ring is a statement of fine craftsmanship in 22- karat gold. Completing the look with matching jhumkis and a bracelet, she said, “The designs from AZVA were all so pretty! While I loved all the pieces that I wore, I thought that the earrings were particularly wonderful for how lightweight they were! I wore them for the entire day but I didn’t feel a thing.”

The outfit and ornaments that she had picked for herself were gorgeous and a little bit of makeup and some hairstyling were all she needed before the cameras started flashing. Makeup artist Sejal Sachnakul of Makeovers by Sejal began working her magic and by the time she was done, Riya was left astounded! Lauding Sejal’s work she said, “Everything about the makeup she did was so beautiful. The foundation was not only comfortable to wear, but it matched my complexion so well it didn't look like I had makeup on! The look was natural, enhanced my features and Sejal gave me skincare tips too! As for my hair, she created a messy braid for me instead of just blowdrying my tresses. It was something different and I enjoyed trying it out.”

Riya admitted she was hesitant about posing in front of the camera until she found her comfort zone courtesy the teams. “Kartik Bhagat and Team Wedding Sutra were so easy to work with! I had not a clue about what to do with myself in front of the camera so Kartik initially kept giving me ideas about where I should look, how I should stand and so on. As soon as I got the drift, all I had to do was be my natural self. I thought the candid photos turned out very well. While I was at it, Team WeddingSutra ensured that I was comfortable at all times.” She went on to tell us how she heard about WeddingSutra On location and her experience of the day. “My friend’s sister Naoumi TripaatiTripaati was a part of this shoot and I wanted this experience after seeing her pictures. Everything was all very new and different to me! I got to work with experts from the industry who gave me insightful tips and made my day memorable.”

Riya’s Look
Makeup artist Sejal Sachnakul began by applying the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation in Rose Silk to perfect Riya’s complexion and give her a radiant glow. Using the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Wet and Dry Compact she set the foundation, creating a clean canvas for her to work on. To draw attention to her eyes, she used the Lakmé Absolute Precision Eye Artist Kajal in Black and added body to her eyelashes with the help of Lakmé Absolute Flutter Secrets Volume Mascara. By lightly applying the Lakmé Absolute Sun Kissed Bronzer she brought some color to her face and completed her look with a pout created using Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Lip Color in Buttery Caramel.
