2010 already filling up with weddings!!

By shahnaz

Hello brides-to-be…my diary is looking pretty full for 2010 already there are very few prime time (Bank Holiday & Summer Season) dates available so if you are looking to enquire do so quite soon! Also unfortunately due to being booked up most of Autumn and Winter with weddings too I am not going to be doing any wedding shows, but if you want to speak to me or arrange a free consultation please feel free to call me 07790 012769 – 01727 846275.

Wedding in Windsor

By shahnaz

Wow…another early start today 7am and on the M25 heading to the lovely historic Windsor and the delightfull boutique style hotel in the town centre.

My bride looked amazing in her stunning gown and full length veil….her hair was embelished with pearls and jewels to echo the intricate detail of the gorgeous gown!

Pictures to follow.

Busy Summer Season

By shahnaz

Well it’s been a busy Summer with weddings every week (some cases 5 over one weekend! Oh and the Friday and Monday weddings…) I have been doing the miles around Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire, London and many other locations…..I’ve seen the most amazing dresses (I have to mention Abigail Mellor’s dress simply took my breath away!), met lovely bridesmaids and of course brides-to-be, visited the most unbelievable venues  from the opulently, extravagantly bold (Brocket Hall, Luton Hoo,)   to the elegant and expensive (Fanhams Hall) and the rustic & simple (Tewin Bury Farm) and low key locations too. I have shared in the happiness, joy and fun of all of my brides this season and have been made to feel very welcome! I have also wiped the tears from the eyes of many a bride and guest (not because I have jabbed them with a mascara wand) but because they have truly loved the end result and been made to feel every bit special on their big day ahhhhh

It’s been a wonderful summer and still more to look forward to this Autumn/Winter and there are plenty of weddings to come and no doubt more stunning dresses and venues to be seen! I shall keep you posted.

The new site is up and running!! Doesn’t it look good?

By shahnaz

Hello everyone and thank you for visiting the new look website I hope that we have managed to achieve what we set out to with the makeover of the website! I would like to thank Phil Smith from A Million Monkeys who has been a true professional and has managed to work to my brief in re-creating the logo, branding and setting the style for The Make up Girl I am truly thrilled as I didn’t stress one tiny bit (as those who know me know that I can stress unnecessarily) I left all the design work in Phil’s capable hands and I am definitely pleased with the end result!! And as a perfectionist….that is saying something.

Keep an eye on this page as there will be some interesting and inspirational info added over the coming weeks and months!
