Kiri contacted me for a fuss free, girly but not too girly look for her wedding day to Matt. She had some preferences for her hair, she didn’t want it to be too styled but she also wanted it to subtly sweep over her ears in a Bardot sexy dishevelled way. She also wanted some fluttery lashes, subtle flicks and hints of bronzed peach and gold sparkle in her eyes.
I was also put in charge of Kiri’s Mum, Jenny. Jenny opted for a smoky eye, one that you could actually see behind her glasses, and nude lips- a chewer offer of lipstick, a coloured lip would not do!
Kiri’s veil, her bouquet and button holes were made entirely by hand, by Kiri herself.
I gave Kiri’s Bridesmaid, Kirsty a fifties flick team with a subtle sixties contoured lid. All in fairly neutral colours so her matt red lips really popped.
The shot below is my favourite from the day. I don’t think a foot has ever looked so elegant! Also, isn’t the dress friggin’ gorgeous!? A beautiful custom creation, by Candy Anthony.
