Polly my gorgeous ex Pat bride initially requested a gothic, vampy makeup look. After trying that during her first trial she completely changed direction and during her second trial decided on a warm, natural and bronzed look with a simple sleek blow dry.
We held Polly’s trials at her wedding venue, her Mum’s and Dad’s beautiful home in the London suburbs. t was full of natural light and provided the perfect comforting setting- Polly flew home from Singapore for each of her trials and supplier meet ups.
Initially Polly booked me to do just her hair and makeup but her lovely Mum Geri and Mother in Law Helen decided they wanted some pampering too. They booked me to do an up do and gorgeous skin with a smouldering smokey eye.
On Polly’s first hair trial she was keen to try some 1920’s pin curls tapering round the side of her head. After wearing them for a day she decided they weren’t quite right for her. We settled on a voluminous but super natural blow dry, making the most of her gorgeous thick auburn bob.
Helen had a bespoke head piece made for the occasion which complemented her french roll perfectly.
How gorgeous and bronzed is this auburn haired beauty?
Isn’t this picture stunning? I do love an intimate portrait of Mother of the Bride helping the Bride get ready.
As always, stood on a chair back combing Polly’s auburn bob crown ready for her head piece and floor length (!) veil. She chose a beautiful headpiece, the veil complimented her look perfectly.
And once again my favourite is at the end.
