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.

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.

For those of you that aren’t familiar with West Yorkshire and in particular Halifax, Holdsworth House Hotel is a grand Jacobean Manor built in 1633 and is now run as a wonderful country hotel.  This hotel is a magnificent location for anyone’s wedding and offers wonderful photographic opportunities.  I love working here so much that here’s another view of this magnificent house…

Out of the blue I received a phone call from Christina wanting help.  It turns out that after an unsuccessful hair trial with her original hairdresser all did not go well.  In desperation Christina called in the hope that I could fit her in not only for a trial, but on her wedding day.  With a little juggling we managed it – phew!
