Vanessa- Smokey tones and elegant hair for a Gate Street Barn Bride

Boho, Brides, Country

Vanessa and I met over lots of prosecco in winter of last year, our initial meeting covered our almost the same honeymoon plans, shared teen party haunts and lasted just over 4 hours! Vanessa combined a make up lesson for her and her gorgeous Mumma Priscilla with a hair and make up trial for them both.

Vanessa’s look was centred around bronzed healthy summer skin, a smokey eye and a sultry nude lip. I added fullness to her hair with hot rollers, thickening products and whipped it up onto a tousled and looped chignon. Flowers and a veil were a gorgeous accompaniment.

I was also in charge of helping her maids get glam! There were 7 of them! We did some gorgeous 5 min inspired hair styles, blow dries and I kept their colour palette the same, accentuating their cream and glitzy outfits with slate shadow, sparkle and cluster lash inserts.

Vanessa’s sister in law had travelled from Asia for the wedding so we channelled her bohemian spirit with salty tousled waves, lots of bronzer and illuminators and a coral nude lip.

A sexy tousled blow dry and rocker quiff were perfect for these two. Aren’t they gorgeous?!
