Ashridge House Wedding

By swalford

Here are a few pictures from a recent wedding at Ashridge House in Berkhamstead. The wedding of the lovely bride Michelle, her 6 bridesmaids, mum and aunt so a total of 9 hair and makeup’s completed in 4 hours. They all looked absolutely amazing in and no doubt had a wonderful day.

Michelle chose a smokey charcoal and silver eye, defined with lots of liner and lashes, she also wanted an elegant yet modern hairstyle that represented her fun and lighthearted personality as well as complimented her dress and the gorgeous setting.

The bridesmaids were all in a deep burgundy dress which was perfect for a Winter wedding, the rich colour commanded a strong defined socket line (eye) so we chose a gorgeous sparkly berry shade by Morphe cosmetics and a glamorous set of lash extensions to finish the look. The hair was in a side bun and adorned with a sparkly crystal and silver hair comb.

Here what the bride had to say after the wedding

2015 Bridal makeup & Hair

By swalford

collage2015 Brides-to-be should start to think about makeup and hair looks for the upcoming wedding, getting a trial date booked in is essential as you want to see how the look is going to come together on the day. The option to try various hairstyles and makeup looks is ideal because the look you initially loved might not suit your face shape, complexion and hair type.

I advise my brides-to-be, to research hairstyles and makeup looks that they like, put a scrap book/pinterest together on what they think goes with the theme and style of the wedding, wedding dress,wedding venue. The overall look must compliment every aspect of the day. I can then help create the perfect look for the bride and the bridesmaids as well as mums.

So really, if you’re getting married in the Spring/Summer you need to be having a trial soon (next few weeks) if you haven’t already! This will allow you enough time to prepare your hair and skin so it’s at its best for your special day when all eyes are on you. contact to book your trial.
