Today’s shoot feature is ‘’Vivaham’’- meaning Thirumanam (Tamil) or Wedding (English). This shoot was put together by an extraordinary team and due to the collaboration of numerous vendors, the results have been extraordinary!

This shoot was the brainchild of Sudhi of Vrddhiuk who worked cloesly along Thushi  Hair and Makeup artist and Thiva Hair and makeup artist to come up with the concept after they all agreed that they needed to do something very different. It took 6 months of planning to ensure a flawless experience and after finalizing Soozana and Jeyash as the photographers, the shoot was well on its way to becoming a success. It was agreed that the shoot would highlight a traditional bridal look, and Sudhi decided to use numerous models to showcase a variety and different takes on the traditional bridal look. Soozana came up with the Red Pattu Saree theme – creating a monotone colour impression. Red is an important colour in South Asian weddings, specifically Hindu weddings as it is not only an auspicious colour, but for its symbolism of love and fertility.

The aim of this shoot was to showcase a complete traditional Bridal Koorai look. We wanted to embody a practical bridal look that let the brides natural beauty shine. The sarees, accessories, makeup, and hair styles were all carefully chosen with this in mind.

Overall, it was a fun filled day that everyone enjoyed and the response to the shoot has been astounding with the behind the scenes clips hitting over 30k views and the pictures reaching even more insights and impressions which speaks volumes for the talents of Soozana and Jeyash. (Those two were amazing to work with!) The hard work put in by this incredible team is surely visible in the following images as you can see the planning, and quality of time spent organizing this shoot.
