Aakriti helped give me my dream look for my wedding. Her work is very professional and she excels in giving the natural, effortless and perfect look for all your wedding related ceremonies. Aakriti, Tanvi and their team made me feel very comfortable and stress free for the big day. Their patience, professionalism and attention to detail for their clients is commendable. Excellent experience!

We all felt like fairytale princesses with pretty makeup by Aakriti & Tanvi Kocchar along with different hair do?s ? I specially loved my loose fishtail braid along with the unique earrings that got attached to the hair.

I am not sure if words can truly express how great I think Aakriti is. She exceeded my expectations in every possible way. From our first meeting, I felt so comfortable with her and I just knew she would be amazing. I decided to book her and I have to say it was the best decision I had made. On the day of my Sagan ceremony and wedding, she showed up with excitement- She had my back like no other, making sure everything was right as she helped with my outfits, fixed the last minute problem and ensured me over and over that everything was perfect. Her caring nature instantly eased my nerves:). I couldn?t have dreamed of anything better than what she did. She is absolutely wonderful and has an amazing talent for what she does. I must say that she is a godsend to every bride. I would highly recommend her to anyone. Thank you Aakriti. Stay blessed. Keep going with the great work. Cheers:)

One of my friend's had gotten her makeup done for her wedding from Aakriti. It was a day wedding and my friend looked spectacular, with what Aakriti had done for her. I decided to meet Aakriti and was welcomed with a great combination of warmth and professionalism. She understood my apprehension about getting the base right and did a wonderful job even during the trial that she offered. My fears were put at rest and I was assured of being in good hands for probably one of the most important things for my wedding. And she did weave magic with what she did for me on the D-day. She did an absolutely amazing job of making me feel as beautiful as I could have hoped to be for my wedding! Her hairdresser was great as well. He made absolutely sure that not one hair was out of place, nor any flaw in draping. I think I truly made the right choice. I hope you succeed even more in life Aakriti. All the best!

She is the best!! When I first saw her work I liked her but when I met her I knew I wanted her for my wedding. She was one of the most accommodating and humble to work with during my wedding. As a bride I wanted some one who not only makes u look pretty but also make u feel beautiful. She makes u look naturally beautiful instead of Layering your face with makeup. Almost every one loved me on my big day- a dream for every bride and I thank Aakriti for this. Strongly Recommend her to all the brides to be :) Aakriti thank you and very best for your work :) Cheers!!

Aakriti is a good friend and the most accommodating person I worked with while planning my wedding! It was a breeze! She makes you feel beautiful in your skin- completely natural rather than layering you with make up. She makes you look like the best version of yourself- I highly recommend her to all the bride to be's ! :)

Honestly, i rarely wear makeup. Maybe if i go out i will put on some Kajal and Lip balm but that's the extent of it. So when i was getting married i was so nervous to find a make-up artist i liked. I was really nervous about looking not good on my wedding day until i met this beautiful lady who has magic in her hands, Aakriti. I had seen her portfolio and i loved how her makeup looked so natural while still providing that bit of glam every bride is looking for. Upon our first consultation, i let her know what i envisioned and she did exactly what i asked. She is so professional and yet so personable, attentive and the way you listen to what your clients want is priceless. I am so glad that you recommended me to wear false eyelashes because it really complimented my whole face. My eyes popped as you said it would and so many people told me that my makeup was beautifully done. The make up was light, subtle and turned out beautifully in the pictures. You made me look like a princess on my D-day. As far as the quality of the products are concerned, trust me Ladies she has provided me with the best makeup I could have asked for. Her entire team did a wonderful job. Not to forget the hairdo artist @soni who was so cooperative and did a phenomenal job. The team knows how to make you look like the best version of yourself. Aakriti truly did an amazing job and the next time i have an event i will definitely be giving her a call!

Aakriti is one of the best makeup artists i have ever met. She sticks to what the clients want but, at the same time, gives ideas and opinions to make her clients look the best. She is undoubtedly a hotshot in her work and very cordial while dealing with her customers. I and my siblings were fully satisfied with her work. She's definitely the perfect choice for any occasion!

Aakriti was the perfect choice for my wedding. I stumbled across her page on instagram and loved her work. I spoke to her many times before the big day and she put me at ease instantly. She believes in letting the natural you shine and thats what I wanted. Im super happy I went with her.

I had a talk with Tanvi, and she seemed super friendly. The price range is also within my limit, just slightly higher. She can travel and as of yet is free on my dates! Read more about Aakriti Kochar on my blog, Crazy Indian Wedding.

For makeup, I wanted really subtle eyes and didn't want to look like a caked up doll. And so I went for Akriti Kochhar. She's the kind of person a bride would want to be with because she listens! She wouldn't do a thing against your wish or whatever you're not comfortable with. Hats off to her!

I went for a trial with her. After the trial, I had a few basic questions like the brands she uses and whether there is going to be any difference between the wedding and trial make-up. To my surprise, she reacted saying that I had no clue about make-up and flatly refused to take my booking. That's 5K down the drain for me, but at least a wedding disaster averted.

After a lot of research online I finalised Aakriti coz after seeing her work it was clear she'll give me the most subtle look. N undoubtedly, she made me look my best on both my sangeet n wedding function... Apart from this the best part was her coming to the venue for my make up which for any bride is one big tension eliminated.. To add to that, even if that day was listed as maximum number of weddings in Delhi n heavy traffic in Delhi coz of Obama, she made to my room very well on time on both days.. No excuse of being late or anything.. Truely professional.. A must recommend for any bride looking for subtle looks.. She knows her work really well.. Thanks a ton to her.

I was introduced to Aakriti by my friend on her wedding day. I loved her work so much that I didn't even bothered to look out for any other option I knew I have to have her for my wedding day and so it happened :) She did my makeup for sangeet and wedding day and it was perfect. Everyone had suggested me to do some research on what kind of makeup and hairstyle I would like to go for on both the days but when the day came I was washed out completely and I had no clue what has to be done . Aakriti was my person, she knew exactly what I would like. I simply loved it, my hairstyle my makeup everything was perfect. Thanks Aakriti for giving me the perfect look on the day and I must say you have a great team.

I saw aakriti's work for the first time at my colleagues wedding and resolved in my head that would hire her for myself as well. Ian glad t took that decision and was glad that she was available at that time. I am not a make up fan and have never gone beyond applying Kajal and gloss. She made feel very comfortable in the full flegded shaddi make up ,it was subtle and I was showered with compliments on how I looked. She was punctual and I was ready in the exact time she had mentioned her conversation (which was 2 hrs). I got married in summers and my make up didn't bleed at all. Thank you Aakriti for making my day even better.

I'm a Mumbai girl who recently married a Delhi boy. We had a wedding and reception in Mumbai and one in Delhi too. Mumbai was a breeze since I knew so many people here to guide me on make up, clothes etc. But, I have a very restricted circle in Delhi. So, when a friend referred me to Aakriti with raving reviews, I just went ahead and trusted the reference. No other option. Right from the word go, Aakriti was very professional. Before I signed up for her services, she explained the fee structure, the time required for make up and ensured she addressed all my thousand doubts (if you are a soon to bride you understand what I mean, silly stupid questions that pop up). Since Aakriti and I were in different cities and a trial was not possible, she emailed me loads of references for eyes & hair styles, just to get an idea of my likes and dislikes. On the day of the reception, she and her team turned up bang on time and she worked her charm. She even ensured she did my hair in a couple of styles and let me choose the one I felt most comfortable in. Her make up was just perfect (natural & fresh) and you know that for sure when even a few days after your wedding people continue to pour in compliments. Aakriti was fairly chilled and made me feel at ease. A young and energetic girl I had fun chatting with her about Delhi, the night life there and lots of other interesting stuff. If I had to do it all again, I know irrespective of whether I would change anything else, Aakriti would still remain the person I would turn to for my make up. A wedding is a special day and if you can look like a dream then every thing is worth it.

I hired Aakriti for my ring ceremony and wedding functions and I am just so glad that I did. I was just so confused when I started my research for a MUA, as most of the brides are, I think. I wanted very subtle and classy makeup and wanted someone who I can be comfortable around on the D-day. And boy was I lucky to have found exactly who I was looking for. I saw Aakriti's profile on wedmegood and then went to her website and it really looked good, so decided to meet her. In our first meeting itself, she understood all my needs,gave good ideas for hair and makeup and was very very sweet and friendly. One day before the function, she actually sent me pics of various hairstyles and makeup for me to chose (who does that). On both the function days, she arrived well on time and actually I made her wait :) She gave me completely different looks for both the functions, which is what I wanted, she is a true professional and a very warm person to have around on your special day. I couldn't have asked for more. Thank you Aakriti for giving me the perfect look.

I'm so glad I booked Aakriti kochar. It all went so well and I got so many compliments. I couldn;t be happier looking at my photos!

My sister booked Aakriti Kochar for her special day, for her bridal makeup and also for my and mom’s makeup. She was supposed to reach by 4 pm, as the time of the baraat was 7 pm (and it was sharp, as informed to her in advance). Her hairdresser and draping lady came on time, but she didn’t turn up at all. She kept saying on the phone that she is 5 mins away for almost 2 hours, when finally at 6 p.m., we desperately started calling a few nearby parlors and decided to rush my sister to a nearby Ambika Pillai salon who thankfully agreed to help us at the last minute. Me and my mom decided to go without makeup, as the baraat was about to arrive. She is responsible for this last minute panick that she created on such an important day of my sister’s life. And on top of it, forget about apologising, she wanted us to pay for “cancellation charge”. I was shocked to hear how blatant she was, having charged us the booking amount at the time of booking, she should in fact be refunding that amount. Apart from lying all the while that she is 5 minutes away, she even wanted us to pay her extra. This is heights of unprofessionalism. Even her hairdresser said, I pray this doesn’t happen with anyone else on her wedding day.
