14th January wedding

By shahnaz

An early start this morning for TheMakeupGirl Team, we were at The Inn Woburn – Beds to beautify the lovely bride Sarah and her bridal party of 3 bridesmaids and mum-of-groom (MOG) The ceremony was taking place at the Abbey and then the reception at The Sculpture Gallery. A gorgeous, crisp, sunny day.

Sarah chose to wear her hair part up with loose curls. Her complexion was flawless, Sarah doesn’t usually wear any make up so didn’t want to look plastered on her wedding day! She wanted to look radiant and beautiful and still remain recognisable by here guests and most importantly by her groom (James)

Congratulations Sarah & James, we wish you a very happy  future together  as Mr & Mrs 🙂

A Busy Summer

By shahnaz

It’s been somewhat of a manic summer, between May-September there have been a massive 55 weddings that have taken place all those gorgeous brides that have been beautified along with their bridesmaids and mums! Grand venues have been visited around Herts, Beds, Bucks, London, and Essex. I have managed to avoid numerous traffic jams with my amazing organisational skills and always having a Plan B and C at hand.

 I have had a few great assistants help me this summer – thank you ladies! You have all been great. I would like to add that my assistants trained with me at in the Intensive Make-up Diploma. (Assistants -Bina Tanna, Chloe Hiskett and Joey Hargreaves)

First Wedding of 2011, 1/1/11

By shahnaz

On New Years Day at 7.45am I was en-route to Hunton Park in Hertfordshire to prepare Louise (bride) and her 3 bridesmaids and 2 mums for a the wedding ceremony to take place around midday.

It was still dark and it felt like middle of the night as some party goers were heading home after their NYE celebrations had come to an end, just as I was heading to work! How times change, not so long ago that would have been me but now I need and value my beauty sleep and above all a clear head for work 🙂

Here are a few pictures of the preparations, more professional pictures to follow in a week or so.
