The Beautiful Emma’s wedding at highly Manor

Recently All my weddings have been in clusters 2 or 3 in one weekend then a few weekend breaks. But this weekend just past being the 23rd march i had the 1 wedding. But this one really kicked off my wedding season.

Emma booked myself after she met me at the hawth wedding fayre back in January 2018. I met Emma for her trial at her house and we got on like a house on fire both having son’s of around the same age and also emma studied hair and beauty around the same time as me so lot’s to talk about.

We agreed on a half up half down do because that made Emma feel her most comfortable. Emma also wanted quite natural but a tad enhanced make up to what she normally did on a daily basis.

On the 23rd March i arrived at Highly Manor in balcombe west sussex at 8 am in the morning. I was met by Emma’s step father who kindly helped me up to the bridal suite. Everyone was quite excited and happy. I prepped the brides hair by pin curling it to help set the style and make it last all day. After this i set to and done the 3 bridesmaids and mum’s make up. Whilst my lovely assistant Laura helped by doing the 3 bridesmaids hair and mums hair. Whilst laura finished off i set about doing the brides make up.

On the trial Emma had opted for strip lashes but decided to go for lash extensions for her day that looked fab. For make up i prepped the brides skin using tropic product’s and an urban decay primer. I used Urban decay naked no 1 pallet and Charlotte tillbury for the eyes. Then Airbase airbrush foundation for the foundation a little hi lighter and blush by benefit and an estee lauder pink lipstick. giving emma a lovely natural look with a lovely glow

I then set about finishing off Emma’s hair i took down the pin curls which had set lovely. I then back combed the top to give a bit of height. and attached the hair vine as a tiara as emma did not want anything too big. Emma’s hair took really well and i always find it helps to set and prep the hair first as it makes hair easier to work with and last longer. it really did create the perfect look.

Then came the exciting moment of the bride getting in to her dress and all i can say is wow the dress was just stunning it suited Emma really well and made the whole look come together. once the bride was in her dress and i had attached the veil it was time to leave. It had been the most wonderful morning and everything had gone to plan so well.

I received a lovely review from Emma the next day with a lovely thank you to myself and Laura for helping out on her big day

I would like to wish Emma and her new husband a very happy marriage and wish them well for the future and thanks for letting me be a small part of your big day.

Thanks for stopping by guys catch up next week for my next blog


2 very lovely brides over the same weekend on a very windy weekend in March

The weekend of the 9th/10th March was extremely Busy. Especially as i was working the night before till around 9pm. As i had one of my brides for April in for a sienna x tan for her hen do and the a very lovely past bride in for a set of gel polish.

The next day on the 9th and up I awoke fairly early at 6.30am to a very sunny morning but rather cold and blustery. At around 7.45 I hit the road to Kenley in Surrey to find the lovely Michelle and get her ready for her big day. Michelle had been recommended me on facebook and booked only about a month before her wedding so we had to fit in a trial asap. I must say we got on so well right from the start to chatting over facebook to meeting for her trial. Michelle being a mummy of 3 and working knew exactly where I was coming from and i understood straight away what she wanted from her wedding hair and makeup. Michelle wanted an elegant updo and very natural makeup which we achieved at the trial and she was very happy. My self and my other lovely lady Laura who I work alongside a lot arrived at Michelle’s house just before 8.30am. i set about prepping the bride’s hair ready to be put up whilst Laura done the bridesmaids hair. Michelle went for a very elegant updo with height at the top achieved by backcombing i had pre curled the brides hair and then i put it up in a lovely looped low bun at the back. Laura once she had finished the bridesmaids hair left and i done her make up. After finishing the bridesmaids make up i started prepping the brides skin ready for make up i used the amazing urban decay primer and airbrush foundation. I used a combination of charlotte tillbury and the urban decay naked pallet on the eye’s. I also used hi beam by benefit with a little bit of blush on the cheeks and cannoball urban decay mascara Michelle chose just mascara and no lashes. Plus a very nice natural lip color. The bride then got in to her gorgeous dress before i attached her veil. to which i used 8 pins to do as it was very windy outside. Micelle then set off to Leatherhead Registry office for her 2.15pm wedding. I want to thank Michelle very much for choosing me to be part of her big day and i wish her and her hubby a very happy future together along with their amazing children.

After finishing off with Michelle i popped home for some lunch and the went a and saw a future bride Kirsty for her trial Blog will follow in June

Sunday morning came round very fast as i did not get home till 5.30pm Saturday. Again a very early 6.30 am start and headed out the door at 8am and headed to haywards heath in west sussex to do Sophie’s hair.

Sophie again found me Via Facebook and i met her a few weeks before Christmas to do her trial. Sophie decided on a half up half down with curls and height for her big day. On the day Sophie’s 3 gorgeous children were with her hubby to be so she was very chilled and relaxed. I only had her Sophie’s hair to do so a very nice easy day. I again prepped the brides hair and curled it and pinned it up to set i then back combed the top and gave sophie a lovely amount of height in her hair and we used her sisters head band in her hair that she had on her wedding day. Sophie had her friend do her make up so i had a bit of a sit down before getting Sophie in to her dress which i ended up doing up. Something i seem to do on a regular basis now.

Sophie looked amazing and got married at 11am and told me despite it being another very windy day her hair stayed perfect as did her cathedral length veil that i placed in using 8 pins again. Congratulations to sophie and her new husband and 3 very cute children hope you have a fantastic family moon together.

And that was it for that weekend i went home and spent the rest of the day with my family Ahead of a very busy week of more trial nails and a lot of other work.

This weekend was very busy but i had to very lovely brides that made my job very easy to do and a big privilege being part of both.

Many thanks for reading and catch up soon
