Bank holiday weekends are always busy and this one was no exception as I had a treble wedding weekend, starting with the wedding of Selina & Paul where I was hired to do the hair and make up for the bride and all three bridesmaids.
The wedding was at The Roebuck Hotel over on the glorious Ashdown Forest and as the wedding was at 2pm I had to be there ready to get started by 7am.
It was a pleasurable, calm and relaxed atmosphere ahead of the wedding which is always a nice atmosphere to work in. The bride had a lovely barrel curl up-do which really suited her and looked very elegant. Everything ran to time perfectly and the girls all looked stunning by the time I had finished.
From there I had to make my way across to Crawley for 12:30pm to then start on Stacy and Craig’s wedding where I had just the Bride’s hair and make up to do.
Stacy went for a curly half up, half down do, which is very popular at the moment and one I love doing a lot as I get to use my Babyliss Pro Hair Curler, which is a fantastic piece of equipment. It was a very relaxed wedding, and as I left at 2:15pm, Stacy was a figure of calm but also a figure of beauty, I hope the rest of their day went really well. I’m sure to find out how things went when we meet again later this year at Jessica & Kevin’s wedding down in Taunton, where I will be doing the hair and make up and my hubby will be doing the photography, because Stacy is Kevin’s sister.
After a busy day Saturday, my Sunday wasn’t quite as hectic but it was still just as important as I had the wedding of Sarah & Mike where I had the bride and the brides mum to do for both hair and make up.
This mornings start time was a little later than yesterday being 9am and I had the bride and her mum ready to go by midday, where by both looked stunning. At one point whilst I was doing the make up Sarah’s bridesmaid, Sam, was amazed by the Airbrush and as she had suffered quite a bad outbreak of spots she asked me if I could do her make up for her as well, of which I duly obliged. She incredibly happy with the result, as was Sarah with her hair, which was a Chignon with a bit of height at the front.
Just as I was finishing on Sarah’s wedding I had an urgent text from a lady I had done just hair for last year when she went to Ladies Day at Ascot. She was going to a wedding today as a guest and had been offered to have her hair done by a friend, who then unfortunately let her down at the last minute by being ill and so couldn’t do it any more. She asked if there was any chance I could do it, or if not if I knew anyone who could. As it happened the timings worked for me to be able to pop over to her and sort her out a curly half up, half down do with a bow, which she absolutely love and was hugely grateful for.
It was a pleasure to be able to pop over to Smallfield to help her out and a pleasure to be able to see her again, I hope she had a fab day.
Now though my weekend can wind down to a pleasurable 48 hours of pretty much nothing as I get to enjoy some time with my family for the bank holiday.
Hope to catch up soon, many thanks for dropping by.
