In today’s post I would like to share with you my own wedding story!
After doing hair and makeup for lots of brides from all over the world, it was my turn to become a bride 🙂
I knew already I wanted a 1950s inspired shorter wedding dress, and one day my lovely mum found it for me! When I tried it on it was just perfect!
Once I had the dress I started to think about which hairstyles and what makeup would suit it the best.
The hairstyle I was after was something loose and romantic with curls. I searched the internet and found a few nice pictures that I liked.
I then had a trial with myself! I tried 2 different hairstyles and took photos of them. I liked both but I decided on one of them that I liked the most. With my makeup I tried one eye with a soft pink eyeshadow and the other with a soft purple eyeshadow. I decided the pink eyeshadow looked better.
I always recommend my brides to do a trial before the wedding day, it takes away so much stress on the big day I f you already know and have tried out beforehand what you are going to do.
I chose to do my own hair and makeup. Now even though I knew what I was doing and have done it at least a 100 times, I wouldn’t recommend anyone doing this! Looking back, it would have been so much nicer to relax with a glass of champagne and let anyone of my great, skillful colleagues help me instead, but oh well.
We were so greatful and happy that our dear friend and excellent photographer Oliver Hinds took our photos on the day. We are so pleased with the photos, having nice memorable photos from your wedding day is so important, as you will look at them for the rest of your life!
It was so far the happiest day of my life, you really have something beautiful to look forward to if you decide to get married!
Hope you have a lovely start to spring, and I’ll see you in my next blog post!
