It’s been a while since I last blogged (I’ve been super busy in the best possible way!); but these beautiful photos from Emily and Dan’s winter wedding landed in my inbox this week and I wanted to share them with you!
Emily and Dan got married in London last November. She got in touch after I had done her make-up when she was a bridesmaid for her sister Leonie’s wedding.
When I met Em for her trial, she immediately explained that she was wearing a navy dress with red flowers with some beautiful sapphire blue jewellery. This beautiful and unusual dress choice definitely influenced Em’s hair and make-up look. As Emily and Dan got married later in the afternoon in November, it was already dark when they said ‘I do’. Therefore it was important to have a bit more drama for Emily’s make-up. We went for glowing, flawless skin, with a warm brown smokey eye and lashes, and a soft pink, peach lip to finish the look.
Em had some ideas about how she would like her hair but was flexible so I could tailor the look to suit her dress and style. We decided on a low, unstructured, curled chignon with a braid on one side, coming into the chignon. Em has a lot of hair, it’s thick and long which was a dream to style; once I had recovered from the shock of just how much she has!
I also styled Emily’s bridesmaids’ and flower girl’s hair – they were such a lovely group: super relaxed, funny and friendly.
Now I shall leave you with the photos and Emily’s lovely testimonial (seriously, I have the best brides!)
“Arabella was, in a word, amazing. During the trial and on the day she really listened to what I wanted and adapted my ideal style to what would suit me and my needs. My make-up weathered perfectly and only needed a single, slight top-up of lipstick between dinner and dancing. My hair looked relaxed and felt comfortable, but it didn’t move a millimetre all day and was as perfect at the end as it was when I walked down the aisle. She also styled each of my bridesmaids on the day without any previous preparation, and they all looked beautiful. I wouldn’t have anyone else, she felt like another member of the family.“
