We, at thrive on originality of creative thought and impeccable execution, therefore, when we met genteel Rahul and adorable Shikha, we found our friends. That we were inspired is an understatement. We enjoyed their timeless pieces that had easy wearability with an undercurrent of delightful flair.

Thank you gorgeous Marriette Valsan and charming Krithika Iyer for this fun experience and infusing each frame with your enthusiasm.

No body used the bathroom as the presence of a dead body there was a real possibility.
After thousand collective prayers were chanted, the first sun rays arrived and we started hair and make up! We realised that for Marriette and Krithika, a parallel profession of an acrobat is a possibility as they managed to balance themselves on rickety chairs while maintaining a zen like steady posture for their makeup. Megha, skilfully and really, miraculously, managed the turban, jewellery, winged eyeliner line and and blusher with the alacrity of a saucer spinner. Continue reading
