My beautiful, amazingly nerdy, writer, Jo contacted me about her black tie wedding as she loved my natural make up and hair style. Jo and I Skype called last year after a recommendation from her amazing wedding planner Yana of Peach Perfect Weddings. We instantly hit it off, discussing respective cultures and traditions, literature and weather- she lives in Texas!
We gave Jo a trial a month or so before the wedding, fitting in tastings and seeing planners in-between! Her initial trial was great in seeing with exactly she wanted for the day, especially with make up. The initial hair style we trialled didn’t work at all. I re worked on it on my practise mannequin and it looked stunning and really suited Jo. She loved it!
As Jo and Ariel’s ceremony was later in the day in Winter, we went for a smokey eye on her and her gorgeous sister and Jo went all out with a tiara! Jo’s freckles were enhanced with a peachy bronzed blusher and her sister’s beautifully thick hair was blow dried and left on rollers to give Oomph and bounce.
Even the Groom, Ariel, got treated to a little men’s grooming!

Jo’s absolutely stunning niece also had some waves added to her beautiful locks.
That plait in full glorious view. Along with a smitten couple.
