A Wedding "Up North". Make-up.

So it was the day of the wedding and my self and Hubby found ourselves back at the MOB all suited and booted at 9.30am. Complete with camera equipment (Hubby was taking pics of the wedding preparations) and a few bits of make-up, you know that I just happened to have lying around ;0). Once Vicky was finished having her hair done I ushered her in to the ‘Relaxation area', AKA the back bedroom, where I had set up shop in front of the window (BTW the best possible place to apply make-up). I then shut the door and advised anyone coming in that this was a stress free zone. I love to do this when I am applying wedding make-up. It's such a stressful day and having time out while being pampered gives people time to relax and ready themselves for the day ahead. 


As always, for me wedding make-up is about enhancing natural beauty. Not necessarily staying away from bright colours but understanding what make-up a person normally wears and having a clear view of what they would like to look like on their "big" day. Obviously I already know Vicky so I was aware that she doesn't wear a lot of make-up normally. However I did insist on two things. A little colour on the lips and a scattering of individual eyelashes. 

Once the make-up was done (I may have spent a little time on the MOB as well) it was on to Wynyard Hall for an amazing day that I will cherish for ever. 

A sneaky picture of me to prove i was actually there. This is the only one you are getting though, cant be stealing any thunder now can I! 

All that’s left for me to say is: Vicky and Jonny I wish you all the happiness in the world and I love you both. Now let us all raise our glasses “to the bride and groom”.
