Aarti’s most recognised work is the real life portfolio of her clients. She explains: “You can achieve the most perfect look with beautiful models, but the real achievement lies in showing how a real bride is given a bespoke look to suit her style and personality whilst eloquently complementing the bride’s ensemble, of which the outcome is truly standing out on her special day and creating presence like no other.”
Her calm and amiable demeanour is favorable in a working environment that can be fast paced and busy, as well as working wonders with nervous brides – a part of her job that Aarti adores.

My journey up until now has been an absolute rewarding one and to get recognition for the services I am so passionate about providing, is in itself satisfying with a great sense of achievement. Thank you to everyone that voted and a big thank you to all of my real brides, my real trophies who have made me a part of their big day.
