Sneha Tharwani, JW Marriott Mumbai Juhu
Experience the stunning transformation of bride-to-be Sneha Tharwani in some of WeddingSutra’s Favorites.
WeddingSutra’s most popular bridal initiative, WeddingSutra On Location, was held at the beautiful JW Marriott Mumbai Juhu. In the first of this three-part series, Sneha Tharwani shares the memorable moments of her experience.
As her big day approaches, this makeover turned out to be exactly the opportunity Sneha wanted to experiment with and evolve her style. The look she helped create in tandem with a team of experts was one that made her feel exactly like the bride she dreamed of being.
A combination of innate style, self confidence and attention to detail, she looked amazing in an Abhinav Mishra ensemble she picked out for herself, wearing exquisite gold jewellery from Azva that resonated with the gold work on her outfit and with make up by makeup artist Shaili Shah using products from the Lakmé Absolute and hairstylist Meera Singh working her magic on Sneha’s luscious locks. As she spent time posing for photographs and sharing her experience with us, Knotting Bells captured breathtaking images of this stylish bride-to-be.
Sneha went straight into choosing her outfit once she’d arrived at the venue. Browsing through the vast collection of lehengas, a beautiful creation by designer Abhinav Mishra caught her eye. She says, “I fell in love with the ensemble the minute I laid eyes on it. I’ve never worn a white lehenga before and the intricate work and design really made it stand out. When I put it on, I was pleasantly surprised at how well it fit. It felt like it had been made just for me!”
Sneha admits she wasn’t too big on gold jewellery until she saw the fine craftsmanship of the Azva treasury. “This necklace was the perfect match for the outfit I picked.” Sneha beams, “The piece helped enhance the gold work on my ensemble and helped the outfit shine brighter. I loved how detailed the designs were and was impressed by the finishing of each piece.” It’s tough to pick a favorite she says but when prodded, will agree that, “while all the pieces looked wonderful, the ring that I wore was definitely my favorite.”
Sneha was particularly pleased with what Meera Singh’s did to her tresses, “She styled my hair in waves and what was remarkable was that they didn’t fall flat at any point during the shoot. I was stunned!“ Shaili Shah gave her an ethereal glow to finish her look. Commenting on her work her said, “I was very happy with what she did and I thought that she was really good.”
As the photographers from Knotting Bells clicked away, she even mentioned how happy she was with their work ethic and the relation they built with those who they were photographing, “They were all so friendly and shooting with them was so easy. We were so comfortable around them and it helped that they weren’t dictating how we should pose. They were there to help if need be, but most of the shots were candid. They made an effort to get to know us and that made such a big difference!”
Before signing off she summed up her day saying, “It was such a great day! I’ve had photo shoots before but this one was like no other. I enjoyed myself thoroughly. Team WeddingSutra definitely deserves a shout out for this wonderful experience.”
Sneha Tharwani’s Look
Keeping in line with the sophistication of the outfit, Shaili stuck to giving Sneha an understated elegance. She started with the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation. Then the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Wet and Dry Compact was used to perfect her complexion. With the help of the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette – Gold, Shalini intensified Sneha’s eye makeup. Then she darkened her eyes using the Lakmé Absolute Kohl Ultimate and smudged it just a little to create a smokey illusion. With the help of the Lakme Absolute Shimmer Brick in Coral, she added a touch of color to her cheeks and used the Lakmé Absolute Sculpt Studio Hi Definition Matte Lipstick in Peach Pout for the final touch.
