ANU PD WEDDING DIARIES 2

Having had a few hours of deep dreamless sleep, I awoke to a where-am-I feeling in a beautiful club floor Suite at Le Meridien New Delhi, that April morning! I clicked a quick selfie, before my next thought, which was of the OMG-I-need-to-check-on-all-the-crews type! 

 

It was the day of the big shoot — the #WeddingDiaries photo and video shoot of Anu P.D. Bridal 2015, in partnership with the hotel, where some of the teams and I spent the night prior, preparing for the First Ever Day-Long Fashion Shoot where social media folks, fashion and travel bloggers were participant bridesmaids, whilst professional models played out brides, going through the rituals and events leading up to the Big Day and beyond. It had been a crazy-assed week with fittings of 3-4 changes each for 14 Bloggers and 2 guest-participants and 8 changes each for 5 models!  That was upwards of 85 ensembles to be fitted for a day-long-shoot! I was tripping! This was perhaps the most-ambitious work-trip I had ever been on; where the journey was to be as brilliant as the outcome, of posts (across platforms) and blog-posts from some of the country's finest bloggers, 1000s of Images to savour and share across social media AND 2 brilliant video-films which are being loaded on YouTube even as I write this blog. 

 

The day kicked-off with a warm welcome to the Brides and Bridesmaids in label Anu PD SS15 and then on to the Spa we all went — for mini-therapies and loads of photographs. The Vedic chanting that played out in the Meditation Room was so hypnotic, I could feel myself zoning out! Whilst the models in outfits from my Bridal Collection, got ready to face the camera for solo pics, the video crew was weaving in and out, calmly filming the flurry of the day's proceedings. Side by side, the bloggers got ready with Hair and Makeup at the hotel salon for the Mehendi. It was at this time the enormity of the task that lay ahead hit me, with minute to minute outfit-changes happening and camera shutters clicking, all around me! The rest of the day went by in a blur from then on. Hats off to the teams: photography, videography, backstage, wedding planners, musicians, my team of designers, helpers, marketing and PR, family and hubby for chipping-in, and all at the Hotel including F&B — for laying out amazing spreads for Mehendi Lunch, Wedding Dinner and Cocktail at the bar, Nero!

 

Nani's grand-daughter finally realised her vision of a fashion-shoot event with media participation, in that one single day, that encompassed the rituals and events leading up to the Indian Bride's Wedding!
