Our recent WeddingSutra on Location was held at AZA Fashions, Bandra. This popular multi-designer house offers a wide range of couture, diffusion and prêt collections for brides-to-be with an emphasis on 'occasion-wear'. Starting with a Style Consultation, followed by a Makeover and a Photo Shoot, each participant got the opportunity to interact with some of the best names in Bridal & Wedding services.

In the first of the three-part series, bride-to-be Trishala Shinde writes about her unique experience with WeddingSutra on Location at AZA Fashions, Bandra.

“After my Roka in January I went on a research spree for the wedding and that’s when I stumbled upon WeddingSutra on Facebook. Since then, it’s been my biggest ally, from imagination and inspiration to actual, practical things like vendor contacts. I sent in my pictures to the Lehenga LookBook album on Facebook and have been in constant touch with them because the idea of being part of such a platform is irresistible. Months later, I was selected to participate in WeddingSutra on Location and I was obviously overjoyed!

I had butterflies when I reached AZA the morning of the shoot but the whole team put me at ease immediately. Everyone, team WeddingSutra, the make up artists and even the jewellery team were warm with their greetings and introductions.

AZA, Bandra feels like home because I’ve already done the majority of my trousseau shopping here and the staff seem more like friends now. I began to browse and came upon this beautiful Sabyasachi lehenga. It was the sort of thing I’d imagined wearing to my reception and to my luck, the team chose the very same one!

The first bride of the day to work on, Recinda Martis and Ronella were a delight. We chatted non stop about my wedding day while they gave me guidelines and tips to follow in anticipation of the event. Recinda colour corrected my skin which worked miracles for me. She brushed my eyelids with gold glitter and tinted lips a bold, deep pink. Ronella worked on my hair giving me a full head of soft curls which I wouldn’t have thought possible without extensions but she did a fabulous job with my natural hair. I was so pleased with the end result! They instilled complete confidence!

When it was time to look at the jewellery fromAzva , I thought it was beyond perfection. Beautiful, original designs in traditional gold deserve a special mention. The piece we chose complemented the cut of the blouse. There wasn't a thing that I would change. The neckpiece was my personal favourite.

When we finally got to the shoot, the photographer from Picture Perfect india was so easy to work with. He had started taking candid photographs while I had my makeup done. He didn't miss a thing! He made sure he got perfect shots like the one where he took a top shot of me sitting in the glitter on the staircase. His vision was beyond words.

One shot that he deserves extra credit for was when he went across the street to capture all three of us like mannequins through the glass of the store. It was raining and he kept instructing us from across the street over the phone. We were all skeptical about how that would look but he absolutely amazed us with the final result.

WeddingSutra on Location provided me with an unforgettable experience. It gave me so much more confidence and a better understanding about what to expect. I feel special and I have team WeddingSutra to thank for it. You guys are a total saviour for real brides."

Trishala's Look
Makeup Artist Recinda Martis decided to go high on glam for Trishala's look with shimmery metallic eyes and a bold pout. Recinda began with applying the feather-light Lakmé Absolute Mattreal Skin Natural Mouse in Ivory Fair and blended it evenly. She then set it with the hydrating formula of Lakmé Absolute White Intense Wet and Dry Compact in Ivory Fair. To highlight the eyes, Recinda used the shimmery gold shade of the newly launched Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette in Gold all over her eyelid. She added a barely there thin liner with the Lakmé Absolute Shine Line in Black and a few coats of Lakmé Absolute Flutter Secrets Volume Mascara to add definition. Recinda used the Lakmé Absolute Sunkissed Bronzer on the apple of her cheeks to enhance her cheekbones. For the lips, Recinda used both the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Lip Shimmer in Crimson Blink shade and the Lakmé Absolute Sculpt Studio Hi Definition Matte Lipstick in Red Rush shade for an uber chic new age bridal pout. Finally, her hair was set in a side swept style with soft curls.
