Cowdray Park – West Sussex Wedding Hair & Makeup

On Saturday we were at Cowdray Park in West Sussex for another fantastic wedding with Louise Perry Weddings.  Having already worked with the fabulous ladies at Louise Perry Weddings in Kew Gardens and  Maddie and all of her stunning bridesmaids had flown in from various cities in the states for their beautiful English wedding day.  The weather was typically British and threatened to rain on their outdoor ceremony but we ignored it and hoped for the best as we set up!  The suite where the girls got ready was just dreamy, we used just a corner of the bathroom for makeup (which to be honest was bigger then most of our apartments!).

All of the bridesmaids went for a variation of natural base with defined eyes with lots of lashes and eyeliner going on.  Each and every one of them looked absolutely stunning!   We loved their matching floral robes too!

Cuckfield Park – West Sussex Wedding Hair & Makeup

On Saturday Sana was in West Sussex for Min’s wedding day.  The sister in law of Louise who’s hair and makeup Tori did for her Venice wedding earlier in the year. Sana is one of our Platinum artists more of her work can be seen on her Pro Team page.

We absolutely love the detailing of Min’s dress – the high neckline is really stunning and it works perfectly with the loose plaited up do that Sana created to go with it.  For her makeup Sana kept it natural with browns and taupe colours and a stunning glowing finish.

We cannot wait to see some of the professional photographs from this wedding – Min looks incredible in these snaps from Sana’s phone!

Venice Wedding Hair and Makeup

Last weekend Tori was in Venice for a destination wedding, bridal hair and makeup.  We absolutely love travelling for weddings as it’s such a great excuse to explore some beautiful cities and towns around the world! This was our first trip to Venice and it certainly didn’t disappoint. Offering some challenges that other cities don’t we had to pack particularly light for Venice as there was no direct transfer from the airport to the hotel.  In a city where your only option is the water bus (which gets very busy!) or on foot you definitely don’t want to be weighed down by a huge suitcase! We were fortunate enough to arrive the day before the wedding with a little time to explore this beautiful city!  While we wait for the official pics from the trip here’s a few from out Instagram Stories over the weekend.

 

 

 

Meghan’s Royal Wedding Hair & Makeup

Meghan’s Royal Wedding Hair & Makeup

What we did & didn’t love!

A few weeks ago now all the talk was about the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle,  we don’t usually post on such affairs but we found the hair style Meghan chose for her wedding to be a particularly interesting one.

Of course for most brides we only have to conform to what we would like, what suits us and what goes with our dress and other such items.  For Meghan she also had to conform to Royal protocol and considering she’s not been dating Harry all that long she probably hasn’t found her own style within these perimeters yet unlike Kate who has had years of practice.

Generally Meghan wears her hair down or in a loose, messy up do.  Now for the royal wedding she was of course expected to wear a tiara, which by all accounts probably doesn’t sit so well with her usual messy boho-chic vibe!  However the back of her hair was pretty enough and suited her, what we weren’t such a fan of was the front!!  We’re always giving our brides the same advice – soft tendrils look great at the front of your hair as long as you won’t play with them! As soon as you tuck them behind your ears they become messy and flick out in all directions – ruining the overall finish of the style.  They’re hard to control and often look misshapen and just messy – but not in a good way!  When Meghan pulled these front bits out for the evening reception it looked absolutely fantastic! It was simply the notion of tucking them behind her ears that we weren’t a fan of!

As for her makeup it was effortless and beautiful – we loved the really natural, glowing, dewy look she went for! Her freckles shone through the foundation and her eyes were subtly smokey brown emphasising them without over powering them – allowing her natural beauty to shine through!  Her brows were subtly defined without them being overpowering and we’d definitely expect there to be some little false lashes in there filling our her lashes for that enviable flutter!

London Engagement Shoot Hair & Makeup for Li Ee

We recently had the pleasure of doing Li Ee’s hair and makeup for her London engagement shoot.  She popped into The Boutique in Fulham where we curled and pinned her hair so that she could take it down later in the evening just before her twilight hour shoot with Aga Tomaszek.  We’ve worked with the amazing Aga before when Danielle from The Tori Harris Pro Team travelled to India for a wedding.

Having your hair and makeup done for your pre-wedding shoot is such a great idea, not only does it enable you to make a day of it (you could even go for dinner after looking your very best!) but it ensures you’ll have beautiful, natural photographs of you and your fiancé where you really do look your absolute best!

 

Li Ee Said: “We just got our engagement shoot photos from a month ago when you helped with my hair and makeup, and the photos turned out great! I love the result of your work – thank you so much for helping me with it at the last minute!”
