I love colour and for this wedding I was involved in back in August it was all about colour and unique and quirky twists.
This was for the wedding of Sara who came from Prestatyn and was brought up by an acclaimed local artist, so her wedding style was always going to be her unique stamp and it was an absolute riot of colours.
Sara’s look was all about enhancing her natural beauty and bringing out her beautiful features and it was all about pops of colour. Sara has quite small eyes so in creating her makeup I needed to use techniques that make her eyes appear larger as too much shadow and liner can actually make smaller eyes disappear, a pop of warm colours on the eye and then she opted for a brighter lip.
Her dress was customised made for her and had a very Russian folk feel to it with the embroidery and work that went into it. She had to have the dress altered slightly as she had not accounted for the bump in the original plan but it was a very welcome addition to the plans.
I was working with my beautiful friend and colleague Hair by Carol Ellis-Thompson and we equally love going to do weddings at Pentre Mawr because it feels like a little road trip when we do jobs in Wales, even though I only live 20 mins drive away. The venue is gorgeous and perfect for those brides and grooms who are looking for a relaxed and festival style wedding, and the owners are lovely and for us busy working they always make sure we are fed when we have finished bridal prep.
Enjoyed doing this wedding as it was a lovely morning, full of people with my love of all things arty and I really enjoyed chatting to her interesting Mum.
I am truly blessed doing what I do and getting to meet some wonderful people along the way.
