Posts Tagged ‘Bridal Hair’

I was on my way to pick my dog up from the vets when I received a text from Vicky, my long term client become friend, to say she was engaged! Yay!

Vicky was planning to move in with her boyfriend, Gareth, in New Mill near Huddersfield and they decided to start planning ‘the big day’ before ‘the moving in day’. I was so delighted when she asked me to do her hair and make-up for the wedding and couldn’t wait to start planning with her.

Their chosen venue is the divineNostell Prioryat Nostell near Wakefield but we will be getting her ready at her parent’s house in Holmfirth, so that’s where we decided to do the trial.

After untold traumas with the dress we decided on the hair style and make-up and set to work. There are lots of fabulous photos so I’ll try to keep the commentary short and to the point.

Vicky has long, silky, fine, straight hair and I wanted as much volume as I could get so I blow dried it using a root boost product to produce the lift required.

I have to say that both Vicky and her Mum (Tricia) seemed to thoroughly enjoy the day and there were smiles all round which was lovely for me.

Having dried the hair I put heated rollers in for body and curl.

Ouch! How many rollers?

Sometimes it isn’t until you see the photographs that you can truly appreciate how beautiful someone is; sometimes you just know instantly.

Bina is an ‘instantly’

I had the great pleasure of working with Bina on her wedding day earlier this month. Even the wakeup call at 6am did not dampen the heart – this was a wedding session we stylists and make-up artists long for.

Along for the ride, actually to hand me hairspray, grips, curling tongs etc., was my husband Paul. In between being sprayed by the air freshener and my hairspray, he managed to capture some beautiful moments like the one you see here.

Bina, I hope your day went well and Paul and I wish you all the happiness and success for your marriage and if you want us to come to India with you to cover your wedding, we will be there any time – hint, hint!!

Love to you

Leigh and John

I had THE most wonderful wedding at the weekend – thank you Leigh, what a lot of fun we had.

The wedding took place in Marsden at the Hey Green Hotel and even though we arrived very early the team from the hotel helped me and my team set up and be ready for the arrival of Leigh and the bridesmaids, Michelle and Gemma.

When Leigh et al did arrive the atmosphere was simply divine right up until we left; exactly how a wedding should be – calm and relaxed.

For Leigh and her guests click the image below to be taken to a small gallery of images showing some of the build up to when you first saw her in her wedding gown. The gallery is password controlled so speak to Leigh to find out what it is and should you want to purchase any of the images simply call me on

To Leigh and John we wish you health, wealth and happiness for your future.

From May 27th the gallery will be removed but the images that you will have seen are still available to be bought, all you have to do is call me and arrange which images you would like.
