My beautiful bride Gemma...what can I say? From the moment she called to chat about make-up, to arriving at my studio for her trial with millionare shortbread, just in case we got peckish (damn you Slimming World lol) to a morning full of laugher and celebration, I didn't want this wedding to ever end!!
Gemma arrived at my door with gorgeous long hair and a beautiful beaming smile, she had a rough idea for make-up, and for the hair all she knew was she wanted it up and out the way with minimal fuss, but still with the wow factor.
Gemma was getting ready on her wedding day at West Heath School, Sevenoaks, in the Diana Suite. A beautifully spacious room, dedicated to the late Princess, with plenty of natural light and large spaces to set up for hair and make-up...an MUA's dream! It wasn't until half way through the bridal prep that I realised that Diana actually went to school there!! It seriously is a bridal suite fit for a princess!!
So much beautiful hair, we applied a little 'twisty magic' to create an elegant style and finished with some beautiful hair pins from my cupboard of sparkles. (visit my boutique, we used Jess in Gemma's hair)
With the worry over previous skin conditions Gemma chose to have the airbrush make-up for her wedding day. Perfect for a natural, flawless, long lasting cover without feeling caked on the skin.
We emphasised her eyes using the Urban Decay Naked 3 pallet for a soft smoky eye, with a pair of lashes from Ardell to finish the look.
A glow on the cheeks and pop of colour on her lips using 'Finally Free' by Mac (discontinued shade)
Gemma was looking the way every bride should, radiant, timeless and elegant!
Thank you Gemma for allowing me to play a part on your special day, it was a pleasure spending time with you.
Congratulations to Ben and Gemma, I wish you a lifetime of love, laughter and beautiful memories
love and best wishes
