Lovely bride Catherine from 2016, was married at Stoke Place, Buckinghamshire had her wedding featured in The Love My Dress blog. Catherine’s uncle is the famous hat designer Philip Treacy, he was proud to be able to design a one off headdress for his lovely niece. Not even Catherine had any idea as to how this headpiece was going to look, what the style would be or whether it would work with her dress/theme etc. Uncle Treacy had it all under control and under wraps until the big day!
When Catherine had her trial with me, she had a messy, boho inspired updo in mind with braids and twists, the messier the better! It wasn’t until the night before the wedding that Catherine messaged to warn me that we will have to change the style completely. There was some pressure yes, but nothing I can’t cope with. In the end, the hairstyle had to be pinned around the headpiece without a pin in sight.
The result was amazing. Catherine rocked the old Hollywood Glam look.

Brides-to-be contact me because they want to create the perfect look for their wedding day, the correct balance of glamour and subtlety to stand out but not to look too made up.
Bringing out the eyes to make them sparkle and to bring out their natural beauty, is of importance to me as a makeup artist.
This is where eye lashes can play an important part. When most brides think False lashes they may think heavy, long and stand out fake, this can be the case if you pick the wrong ones.
My approach to creating stand out, knock out sexy and sultry eyes is by using individual lashes to enhance my client’s natural beauty. Eye lash extensions are included in the bridal and bridesmaids makeup package.
Why not find out how I can help you create the perfect look for you with a free consultation.

So this morning at 7 am I set off to the gorgeous Hartwell House in Aylesbury Buckinghamshire to beautify the lovely bride Abbigail and her 3 bridesmaids and mum. Abbigail was the bridesmaid for her sister Kate who got married in 2011 in Hertfordshire and I had the pleasure of doing her hair and makeup too and today was Abbigail’s turn, so when I arrived at the venue this morning it was like no time had passed at all and it was lovely to see familiar faces again even the photographer Cris Matthews was from Kate’s wedding who had travelled from Yorkshire to photograph Abbigail’s wedding today.
Abbigail opted for a soft low hairstyle with barrel curls and her makeup was dewy, fresh and golden to compliment her gold/ivory accessories and beautiful boho style dress. The bridesmaids had ballerina buns and again soft, fresh makeup that complimented the brides look.
Here are a few pictures from today’s preparations and I’m sure more will follow.
Bespoke Bridal Hair & Makeup St Albans & Hertfordshire
It’s been a busy Summer with plenty of weddings for us here at The Makeup Girl St Albans, myself and my team have beautified numerous
brides and their bridal parties including bridesmaids, flower girls and mums of the bride and groom. Despite the appalling weather in June/July our brides looked flawless and glamorous with our use of premium cosmetics and products that have stay put from early morning till late!
August Bank Holiday weekend was our busiest yet and we travelled throughout Hertfordshire, London, Bedfordshire, Essex and Bucks to
beautify brides and they looked amazing. It’s wonderful when it all comes together and our clients are happy with their hair and makeup. We have met some lovely brides and their families in the past few months who have looked after me, my assistants and of course my bump (I’m expecting a baby in Dec) with a steady supply of cold drinks and sweet goodies…yummy and of course helping us carry our heavy cases up and down gorgeous venues that don’t have lifts.
So it was an Amazing August and here’s to a Spectacular September as the season is not over yet. I temporarily hang up my brush kit at the end of October (to have my baby)for a few months but this doesn’t mean that I am not available to meet for a consultation or a chat to discuss your requirements as 2013 is already filling up fast. If you’re looking for a premium hair and makeup service then contact us ASAP.
