Lisa requested my help with her hair and make-up for a masked ball in aid of two charities – The Forget Me Not Trust and the Anchor Trust.  We didn’t have time to arrange a trial but Lisa kindly agreed to having her photograph taken showing the process from start to finish, thank you Lisa.

When Paul and I arrived at Lisa’s house in Longwood just outside of Huddersfield, we were greeted at the door with Lisa in her funky monkey pj’s and sporting clean wet hair and a huge grin and off to the kitchen we went.  As I take so much equipment with me I virtually take over a room and poor Paul often has to lodge himself into an uncomfortable corner to take the pictures I want, but he always comes up trumps.  In Lisa’s kitchen he worked with the downlights only as his flash guns were being serviced but we really love the warm tones this gave Lisa’s tanned skin and auburn tresses.

When we spoke initially, Lisa told me her hair was unruly, thick and shoulder length and she had no specific idea in mind for the style she wanted just ‘up and posh’! Always up for a challenge I was delighted to work on Lisa’s thick, auburn wavy hair that absolutely did everything I wanted it to.  I started by applying a smoothing serum and blow dryed it with a large, round ceramic brush giving it volume and incredible shine – yum.

Nicole’s mum, Aidie, rang to see if I could do Nicole’s make-up for her school prom. Aidie was concerned that the desired look of lots of heavy black eyeliner, would not suit the dress for the evening. Although it was short notice we did manage a trial and agreed on a smokey look that managed to avoid the black eyeliner!

So, when Paul and I arrived on the night, Nicole’s short dark funky hair was already in place with tiara and her skin was cleansed, toned and moisturised in preparation.

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

It has been one of those weeks that are exciting and utterly tiring. I’ve mostly been flying solo this week without Paul who has been busy taking images for his corporate clients whilst I have been busy with three weddings and two trials. I love my job, truly, but right now I need a bath to ease my feet.

Tomorrow is our only wedding this weekend and this one sees all the team working on this one. And in a weeks time we have the most delicious wedding to cover in Bury – a Muslim wedding and I really can’t wait. The atmosphere, the excitement whilst at the same time the mosque will have a beautifully tranquil feel calming the nerves of everyone. These are wondrous settings and the team and I are really looking forward to it.

For those undecided if you want to book us I’ simply say this – a quick email or phone call costs little more than some of your time so go on, pick up the phone or let your fingers do the typing. Our diary is filling rapidly and I really wouldn’t want to disappoint you.

Bye for now,

Nikki
