WeddingSutra On Location invited four brides-to-be to KALKI, in Worli, Mumbai. Kicking off with a Style Consultation, they were treated to a Makeover and their transformation captured for safekeeping in a professional Photo Shoot! Each bride-to-be also had the opportunity to interact with some of the best professionals in Bridal and Wedding services.

Here, in the third of the four-part series, bride-to-be Ruchi Jain shares her experience with WeddingSutra on Location at KALKI.

“I’ve been familiar with WeddingSutra for a while now. I’m a designer and keep myself up to date with new trends and styles. I’d always refer to their blog for quick inspiration. After I got engaged I happened to apply to WeddingSutra On Location and got selected!

As I entered KALKI in Worli, team WeddingSutra greeted me warmly. We then selected a beautiful high-waisted lehenga in pink with a pink choli to complement it. As soon as I tried it on, it felt like it had been made for me! It fit perfectly, the colour and cut looked gorgeous on me.

Then Recinda Martis started with my hair and makeup. She decided to go with smokey eyes and a messy braid that I’ve always wanted to try. Amazingly, hair and makeup didn’t take more than half an hour and after I was done I was extremely happy to see the natural yet glamourous look she gave me!

Team WeddingSutra helped me accessorise with a lovely polki neckpiece and earrings by Mahesh Notandass. I have always been a big fan of polki jewellery and I totally loved the final look. I felt like a queen.

And then came the photo shoot! I felt like a celebrity bride now. I thoroughly enjoyed posing for Dev who made us all laugh and with whom I felt so comfortable.

My experience at WeddingSutra on Location was phenomenal. It gave me a lot of clarity about what my wedding and sangeet looks should be and also how to begin creating my trousseau.

After all the fun, I then had a dental consultation session and a clean up with Dr. Diksha of Smile Essentials, which was like the icing on the cake. It was a lovely experience overall.”

Ruchi’s Look
Keeping the spring-summer bridal season in mind, makeup artist Recinda Martis decided to keep Ruchi's lips and eyes the highlight with barely there makeup on the rest of the face. She created the base with the feather-light Lakmé Absolute Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse in Beige Honey and set it with the hydrating formula of Lakmé Absolute White Intense Wet and Dry Compact in Beige Honey. To highlight the eyes, Recinda used the Lakmé Absolute Color Illusion Pearl Shadow in Peach Pearl as the base and added a hint of the Lakmé Absolute Eye Chromatic Baked Shadow in Night Desire and blended it to give a smokey eye look. She finished with a few coats of the Lakmé Absolute Flutter Secrets Volume Mascara. Recinda then brushed a slight hint of the Lakmé Absolute Face Stylist Blush Duos in Rose Blush shade to give a spring flush to her cheeks. With the lips being the highlight, she applied two coats of the high shine Lakmé Absolute Gloss Addict in Very Berry shade and added a top coat of the Lakmé Absolute Gloss Stylist in Pink Pout shade to give a dewy finish. Finally, her hair was styled in a messy side braid perfect for a spring look.
