Kate- Subtle, Shimmery Gold Eyes, a Bright Red Lip and Cropped Hair for a Somerset Bride

Kate married her love at The Temple of Apollo, Stourhead with prep at The Pig near Bath. A short haired lady like myself we tried a quiff during her trial but it proved a little much. She decided on subtle volume from her crown with her hair gently pulled back from her forehead with a stunning headpiece by Jen Levet.

I also got to work on this gorgeous and very patient little lady, Nancy. Nancy was happy to have French/Heidi style braids, we fitted her herb and foliage crown and sprinkled some glitter on top for good sparkly flower girl measure.

Kate’s hair was something we put a lot of attention in to. I often find that some hair stylists/ hair dressers can tackle short/ cropped hair with a one size fits all approach. They don’t often give it the care and attention it deserves! With the help of Kate’s hairdresser, we tailored the look to her wonderful headpiece by Jennifer Levet, making sure she had volume and body, keeping things simple, elegant and modern.

I also had the joy of working with Kate’s Maid of Honour, Zoe with a full fresh face of make up and moss green smoky eye to team up with her playsuit and blonde curls. Geraldine, Kate’s Mum wanted her very fine, sparse hair styled to suit her bespoke headpiece by Jennifer Levet. I dampened her curls and added thickeners whilst gently teasing them to frame her face. We also decided on a subtly bronzed complexion, lots of mascara to frame those incredible blue eyes and a pink lip for Oomph.
