First wedding of 2019

My first bride of 2019 was Amanda. Amanda contacted me via Facebook a month before her wedding in need of a makeup artist. Luckily being January I had a very quiet month with only 2 other weddings booked so had her date available 4th January.

Of course being a month before her big day we needed to fit in a trial which was a pretty mean feat being my december was crammed with work and so was Amanda’s. Luckily we agreed on her trial date being the 28th December that period between christmas and new years where no one knows what day of the week it is. So Amanda came in with her lovely daughter and we agreed airbrush was going to be amazing for her. We decided on a small pair of lashes which Amanda loved.

So The next time I saw her was on the wedding morning January 4th at The Grand Hotel Eastbourne. Never worked at this venue before and my first thoughts when I turned up was wow. It was a very bright if little bit chilly morning but dry which is what the bride wanted.

I went and found Amanda in her suite which was just as wow as I had imagined with an amazing view of the sea. I quickly set to work on the makeup for the bride and 2 bridesmaids. Then Amanda’s friend walked in and requested some lashes as did her mother in law. So I ended up doing more than intended.

The morning went very fast and Amanda got in to her gorgeous dress and looked amazing as did her bridesmaids.

It was a massive pleasure being part of this big day and my first wedding of the year was lovely and calm. And Amanda the perfect bride. I hope you and your husband have the best honeymoon in the USA enjoy the lovely weather and massive congratulations.

Thanks for stopping by to read this, catch you all again soon…..Claire x
