Finally, our Bride and Bridesmaid shoot is all set to turn the pages of trends in the wedding industry. It was a Fun shoot filled with colors and laughter and a whole lot of magical moments!
Here’s a quick highlight of our Bride and Bridesmaid shoot, which is beyond cute!
Ever since a little girl, she dreamt of her wedding days, from Mehendi fun to Haldi joy. Our bride’s roka happened in April 2018 and since then she has been planning everything she has dreamt as a kid.
Little did she knew that a lifetime surprise is awaiting her dream road! This surprise would not only turn her Bridesmaid shoot daydream into reality but will make her wedding extra-special.
With sparkles in her eyes, she knew that it’s her time to shine. Our beautiful bride Jyotsana entered the exotic Heritage resort of Manesar for our much-awaited Bride and Bridesmaids shoot. So, let’s take you to a ride of her dreams…
How the concept of Bride and Bridesmaid shoot clicked us?
In the hunt of trends, we realized that Mehendi ceremony is slowly and gradually turning into the most loved ceremony of a wedding. From bride to her besties, pretty girls plan their Mehendi ceremony in a very special way! That’s when this idea clicked us that why not re-create a Mehendi day set-up with a lucky to-be-bride. So, we announced a competition on our Instagram handle and our bride-to-be Jyotsana Arora won a lifetime opportunity to be our Eventila Bride for this Bride and Bridesmaid shoot.
From Our Winner
Bride-to-be Jyotsana Arora, who also runs a nail art studio in Gurugram, shares her lucky day story.
I used to follow Eventila for wedding inspirations and one day when I was looking for some wedding planning inspiration ideas, I saw this Giveaway competition. Without telling anyone, not even my sister, I randomly applied for it and forgot about it. One day, when I got a call from Eventila, I just didn’t know how to react. I was too excited. I waited for confirmation before telling my sister and friends about the selection. They were also on the top of the world like me.
Before our final shoot day, we had planned our outfit trials at The Abhinav Mishra Studios at Shahpur Jat, where it was magic around and we were witnessing it!
Abhinav Mishra is known for creating magic with mirrors. We must say, all the outfits were just so pretty that it was beyond words. On the day of trials, the staff welcomed us and then showed different outfit options that will look best on our bride. Our stylist and floral jewellery partners helped us decide on the outfits and looks. During our interactions, it was our bridesmaids who were just so excited because they were going to wear the New Diwali collection of Abhinav Mishra which are yet to be officially launched. On the other hand, Jyotsana, our bride-to-be even told us that she felt like a queen that day.
The Shoot Day!!!
Finally, the day arrived when this Bride and Bridesmaid shoot was all set to roll into reality. With all the glitters in the air, when the light was just right, we arrived at the Heritage Resorts Manesar, where our makeup artist Shruti Sharma was all ready to spread her makeup magic on our pretty girls.
She started to do a makeover for our girls, understanding their face cut and complexion types. During the make-up session, she shared a whole lot of tips and tricks about Mehendi looks and her real bride’s inspirational story.

While we were in the makeup room, The Dream Team outside were prepping up the venue with trendy mehndi decor which included tassels, gotta hangings, origami, props, vibrant colors, and real flowers. Check out our blog on Mehendi decor ideas to pick up from our shoot here.
With stylist on board, from the Merry Kaufer team, our girls were getting the princess makeover. As from different looks to the different hairstyles, they got everything that they ever dreamt off.

So our girls were getting ready to set the photographs on fire! But seeing so many cameras around, they got little conscious. Our photographer Nikhil from Knotty days stepped in and made them feel really comfortable by making them laugh a little and showing them different poses. He even twirled himself to make them feel comfortable. How cute, isn’t it?
With Mehendi fun in the air, our brides were posing, having the best time of their lives. And with the beautiful tassel decor behind, love of your besties by your side, it was beyond just perfect!
So, we had planned that we will try some different looks on her brides, using different dupatta draping styles and some beautiful latest trendy jewelry.
You would be very excited to know that our Bridesmaids were wearing Raabta by Rahul‘s jewelry for this shoot. And we must say that the jewelry was just outstanding.
From its intricate designs to its latest collection, every jewelry was a showstopper. For this shoot, we had palki jewelry from Raabta, which is just the newly launched trend in the jewelry industry. It gives you that rich and royal look that every bride craves for on their wedding.
Talking about our bride-to-be, we made her wear floral jewelry as that is the latest trend in the Indian wedding. These jewelry designs were by a new designer-Flosaira. We must say, her collection was something that we had never seen before. From Matha Patti to Hath fool to floral kaleere, it was made with different materials. She had used feathers in her Hath fool and ear rings. We personally loved the Passa design and the Pair fool, which was just out of the world.
Wearing all these beauties, our Bride-to-be and our Bridesmaid stepped to the dream decor filled with happy vibes of the Mehendi day.
What is more beautiful than a twirl!
Our photographer from Knotty days, made our girls feel that they are real princesses.
Lights! Camera! BTS Action!
We had so much fun, we can’t even express it in words. Our Bride-to-be and our Bridesmaids were dancing and grooving on the beats of Laila O Laila.
During the makeup session, our Makeup artist revealed looks inspiration. Check the video here. Our Bride and Bridesmaid were laughing, team members were cracking jokes.
Everyone did not just have fun but within a small span of time, everyone felt that family connection and it turned into that real family teasing Mehendi ceremony.
A special mention goes to our Venue Partner Venuemonk, who helped us with all the assistance we needed for venue partnership. We would also like to thank Heritage Resort Manesar for extending warm hospitality and the co-operation we needed for a day-long mad-mad shoot! We even enjoyed the sumptuous buffet spread over the dining area!
