As part of our initiative ‘WeddingSutra on Location’, we invited four brides-to-be for a unique experience at Mayyur Girotra’s new store in Khar (West), 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 third of the four-part series, bride-to-be Dr Vastavikta Ramrakhiani tells us about her experience with WeddingSutra on Location at Mayyur Girotra.

“So here I was my usual self, occupied with my regular routine and mundane life when suddenly the opportunity to experience the On Location shoot with WeddingSutra and Mayyur Girotra came along. The entire idea of this shoot was amazing from the word go. Mayyur Girotra’s store with its vintage lamps, elaborate mirrors and earthy tones on the walls had such a surreal yet warm feel to it,. Anshu from WeddingSutra greeted me and introduced me to the experts- Makeup Artist Kumar Iyer, Hairstylist Laksh Singh, Candid Photographer Dev Purbiya and Cinematographer Rajesh Dembla. I then went on to view Mayyur’s bridal collection which I thought was stunning. After a few minutes I was wondering how I would choose just one outfit and then with the assistance of the Store Manager I selected a yellow and orange lehenga with silk yarn resham embroidery and dabka work with zardozi. It was teamed with a dupatta and blouse of the same color. After I tried it on, I felt its color accentuated my skin tone and the fit seemed perfect.

I then went on to get styled by renowned Make-up Artist Kumar Iyer who I must say is an absolute sweetheart! To add to my royal experience Kumar and his team pampered my skin and hair and made me feel like a complete diva.

After the clothes and the makeover, came the jewellery. This time I wasn’t just ecstatic I was shell-shocked when I got to wear a breathtaking neck piece from Azva. It was a one-of-a-kind creation, which took the regal feel to an entirely different level. The team then helped me pair it with matching earrings and stunning bangles.

With the jewellery in place, I was ready for the photo shoot with maverick Candid Photographer Dev Purbiya. He put me at ease instantly and I put on my ‘happy face’ while he clicked away. We then posed for some group shots, where I interacted with other brides-to-be and we exchanged notes on our experiences and the journey to D-day. We also got a chance to meet designer Mayyur Girotra, he was very friendly and he made me feel very special, for a few minutes I felt I was a showstopper!

All in all, this has been one of my best experiences! Thank you team WeddingSutra.”

Vastavikta‘s Look
Kumar was inspired by the sparkling energetic colors of Vastavikta’s lehenga, and felt that a sophisticated clean look would complement the Bride’s Grecian features. The Lakmé Absolute Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse in Golden Medium was a perfect match for her skin tone. For her cheeks he used the Lakmé Absolute Sunkissed Bronzer. For her eyes he chose the Lakmé Absolute Duo Shadow in Pink Wink, Lakmé Absolute Flutter Secrets Mascara and the Lakmé Absolute Kohl in Black on her lower eyelids. He chose black to make her brown eyes look more molten. He used a q-tip to evenly blend the soft golden nude lip colour he had chosen. He completed the look with the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Compact in Golden Medium.
