Simran Sharda – Tarun Tahiliani
Discover her transformation with WeddingSutra on Location at Tarun Tahiliani’s Couture Studio
As part of our initiative ‘WeddingSutra on Location’, we invited four brides-to-be for a unique experience at Tarun Tahiliani’s couture studio in Colaba, 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 first of the four-part series, bride-to-be Simran Sharda, blogs about her experience with WeddingSutra on Location.
“I have been logging on to WeddingSutra regularly, when two of my classmates got married last year, they were part of WeddingSutra on Location. And the moment I saw their photos, I knew I would love this experience too, so I wrote in to WeddingSutra. When I received a call inviting me to their next on location at Tarun Tahiliani’s new studio, I was delighted and confirmed my presence immediately.
As I entered his studio on the day of the shoot, I was warmly greeted by the WeddingSutra team and introduced to the experts; Stylist Nisha Kundnani, Makeup Artist Ojas Rajani and Photographer Shreya Sen. Nisha then took me around the studio to show me the outfits on display, and suggested a few options that she felt would look good on me. To me personally, everything looked absolutely stunning, it was so hard to choose! From the shortlisted options, I decided to try a gold shimmer Cocktail Saree. When I went into the trial room, it looked quite complicated to wear, it had all these drapes around it, but it was one of the simpler outfits I have worn. All I had to do was wear the saree like a skirt and zip it. And once I did, the saree fit me perfectly, like it was almost made for me!
With my outfit chosen, it was then time to get my hair & makeup done by Ojas Rajani. Ojas is an absolute darling! At every step during my makeup, she made me feel comfortable. I was glad to enjoy this trial session with her, as she will be doing my makeup at my Sangeet as well, so it was a delight to work with her before that.
An hour later with my hair & makeup done, came the hard part – the photo shoot. I am usually quite conscious to pose in front of a camera, but Shreya did her best to make me feel comfortable, and told me exactly what to do which made the shoot even simpler.
All in all, the entire experience was fantastic! I felt pampered and special with so many people around me. Thank you Team WeddingSutra!”
