So a few months ago we were approached by Payal from Brides by Payal, a makeup and mehndi artist to work together on photos for her upcoming magazine for the Dreams Wedding Show. If you head over to her facebook page you’ll see that she has great work and is by far one of the best mehndi artists we’ve ever met.
She approached us about shooting two models so we started looking right away. Eventually we decided to go with Abissheka Lloydson for the makeup and Sukhmeen Ghotra for the mehndi. They both proved to be wonderful models and were amazing to work with.
We also decided that instead of a regular black or white background we should make a set, so off to Homesense we went! Homesense always has a lot of great stuff and we found a tufted leather chair, an antique looking side table, a table lamp as well as a rustic looking hanging candle holder. Oh and not to mention a few sarees that we borrowed from our mothers.
We got to the location a little early set everything up and by the time we were ready so was our first model Abissheka. She was amazing and she pulled off the bridal look perfectly, even though she’s only 16! Sona was up next and she also did great and the mehndi that Payal did on her back was simply stunning.
But we were a little biased towards our favourite model: our ever-amazing, MOLLY!
Hope you guys enjoy!
