A number of my bridal bookings come through recommendations. And it’s often the case that I do hair and makeup for a bridal party, then afterwards one (or more!) of the bridesmaids will book me for her wedding hair and makeup.
So for this blog post I thought it would be nice to feature the weddings of sisters Michelle and Laura, who both booked me to do their bridal makeup.
Michelle was the first to get married back in March 2016. I’ve known Michelle for a while now, so was thrilled when she asked me to do her makeup for her special day, along with her 2 bridesmaids and her mum.
It was a cold but sunny day when I arrived at the venue, The Bowfield Hotel & Country Club, and the girls were all excited for the day ahead. Michelle opted for natural smokey eyes with a touch of highlight and finished off with statement red lips, such a lovely look. The bridesmaids also went for a smokey eye, with Ariane going for a slightly heavier look than Laura, but both girls looking equally as gorgeous. Mother of the bride Linda went for a very classic look with natural colours. The girls all looked stunning!
Early the following year, I was delighted to hear from Laura, who was in the middle of planning her wedding for that October. She had been delighted with her makeup when she was bridesmaid for her sister, and wanted to book me to do her wedding makeup too.
The months flew by and before I knew it, Laura’s wedding day had arrived. The venue was The Busby Hotel, also part of the Manorview Group (I absolutely love all of the Manorview Hotels…. Stunning locations with amazing honeymoon suites. There’s definitely been a lot of thought put into the design!).
I did makeup for Laura, Michelle, and mother of the bride Linda. Laura chose a natural look for her wedding makeup, and I just loved creating a gorgeous soft and dewy look with natural smokey eyes and a natural lip colour. Michelle was looking for something a bit heavier, so we went for darker smokey eyes but kept the lips natural. Linda went for a similar look to what she had for Michelle’s wedding…. Classic with natural colours. And once again, the girls all looked gorgeous!
Since then Michelle, Laura and Linda have asked me back to do their makeup for Linda’s 60th birthday party just a few weeks ago. Thanks again for choosing me to do your makeup girls….. hopefully I’ll be seeing you all again soon for the next special occasion!
