The Regal Era // Photography by Alfaaz Photography
Rajputana Royal Indian Era
History and movies are always a great source of inspiration; this stylized shoot was inspired to recreate Padmavati’s regal look. One of the challenges to recreate this look was setting the scene to the royal Maharaja/Maharani era from the movie. The light had to assimilate as if it was created from candles and lamps towards the bride and ambience. Sonika from Starzz Design and Decor worked tirelessly to produce something which was truly unique for this vision. Sonika was challenged to recreate this effervescent royal look, a room that could accommodate all desires from a maharani. Neha SAWC planners got on board and connected the team with Grand Victorian. The Grand Victorian has the perfect setting to create that final look we had envisioned. Over 300 candles and pieces were used in the completion of a final look to mirror the indulgence of luxury from that era. On the clothing side, Ruchika from Lesonne Bridal took a lead alongside Zardozi Couture. The outfit played a big part of this shoot and Zardozi Couture created a look with dark reds and majestic greens for a final royal look. The embroideries were detailed and representative of the look from Padmavati’s era. Zardozi Couture is one the finest designers in Toronto Wedding Industry along with Lesonne bridals know for impeccable makeup skills for Indian Bridals with Starzz Decor and Design, this was the perfect team to work with. Final touches included jewellery, hair and makeup where Ruchika from Lesonne Bridals worked her magic to create a royal look on Waheeda, our bridal model. To ensure the accurate representation of the gold exuberance of Padmavati look, real gold jewellery was sponsored by Janak Jewellers. We are thankful for the collaboration and effort from everyone who worked in bringing this vision alive for the royal Indian maharani look. Here are some images from this Padmavati-inspired photoshoot.
