Every perfect make-up session begins with a trial.  It is a way of getting to the perfect look that you’ve dreamt of! Various hairstyles and make-up techniques are recommended and co-ordinated with the trousseau for the occasion.  It is here that you decide how comfortable you are with our service and can express your opinion on the looks we create.  Rakhee will go to great lengths to elicit your thoughts and visions of how you want to look on your big day. This will then be combined with her professional know-how of what looks will suit and flatter you, together with expert suggestions and creativity to map out the perfect bridal solution for each of your events.  As an addition you’ll gain many ideas on how to wear your saree or dupatta, thus ensuring that it shows to its full potential!


When it comes to hair our experience will provide you with a hairstyle that will perfectly complement your outfit and make-up. This can be further enhanced by adding fresh flowers and accessories. In short, we will create the bespoke, distinguished look that you have in your mind, be it traditional, elegant, contemporary or glamorous! You can choose a manageable style that will last all day or a fun, frivolous look for a more casual event, or maybe even a classic coiffure for a glamourous celebration.


Make-up is a form of self-expression that enhances the beauty within in your own, inimitable style. To create each look, we use only the finest products from MAC Cosmetics, Nars Cosmetics, Huda Beauty, Anastasia Beverly Hills and Becca Cosmetics.
