Penny and Will – West Sussex Wedding

In June last year myself and my assistant Grace were in West Sussex for Penny’s wedding to Will.  It was a busy morning getting her bridesmaids, mother and Penny’s hair and makeup to do but what a beautiful morning it was! As you can see from the images it was beautifully sunny.

Penny left this lovely review on google:

 

“I highly recommend Tori and her team, I feel I was so lucky to have found her for my wedding. From the beginning, she was always quick to reply to emails, organised, professional and just a lovely person. On the day she ran to a timing schedule which was hugely helpful. Tori was calm and accommodating and she easily fitted my silk drop veil into my hair comfortably and it stayed in place all day. My make-up and hair was perfect and I was thrilled with my bridal look. My bridesmaids and mother looked beautiful too – we all received so many compliments. Thank you Tori x ” 

Their wonderful photographer was Naomi Kenton

Rachelle and Tonderai – Cooling Castle, Kent

Cooling Castle - Kent Wedding

Last summer I was at Cooling Castle in Kent for Rachelle and Tonderai's wedding. It was my first trip to this popular venue and I wasn't disappointed!  The weather threatened throughout the morning as I worked with my assistant Erin to get Rachelle, her mother and bridesmaids ready.  However it had started to dry off by the time Rachelle got into her dress and these stunning pictures from Lemonade Pictures capture just that.

For Rachelle's bridal hair we created a stunning half up half down with two fishtail plaits which was finished off by her beautiful hair comb.
Their wedding was also featured on EasyWeddings

The Wedding Industry Awards 2016

For the fourth year in a row I was a finalist in The Wedding Industry Awards.  For 2016 I entered both the Makeup Artist and Hair Stylist categories and was a finalist in both! This is no small feat with so many tallented artists within the London and South East category.  Sadly I didn't win the regional award however I did recieve some truly wonderful comments from some on my brides...

 

Hayley  “Tori was simply fantastic every step of the way. From my initial trial through to the big day itself, she knew exactly what I wanted and created the perfect look for me and my bridal party. She was extremely professional thought, and a very calming influence on the day! Everyone commented on how amazing my hair (and make-up!) looked, and I couldn’t have been happier. Thank you Tori!”

 

Rosanna   “I was blown away by Tori’s talent and expertise and her ability to interpret my vision for how I wanted my hair for my wedding day. She was patient, professional and extremely creative. Tori ensured she was punctual on the day of my wedding, and she excuded calmness and professionalism in all aspects which made me feel at ease. Tori truly is a wonderful artist and I believe her hard work and talent should be recognised.”

 

Jennifer  “Not only is Tori creative but also a fantastic listener picking up on the brides needs, style and look effortlessly. Her attitude is "can do’ and nothing was too much trouble A dream to have on board as part of our team”

 

Ali   "Tori is a calming and confident presence on a day that has the potential to be otherwise stressful. She made me feel like a princess, and she works quickly and efficiently. In 3 hours she did hair and makeup for myself, my mother and my sister, and we were all thrilled.”

 

Suzie   “Tori is brilliant with bridal hair. I wanted a natural look with loose waves and she really ’got it’. The hair she did for my bridesmaids was also just lovely - I showed her a few Pinterest photos and she understood what I was looking for straight away, whilst also giving it her own twist. On the wedding day she was punctual, relaxed and friendly (not to mention efficient), and everyone loved their look. You’re in safe hands with her, which is just what you want on your wedding day.”

 

Nicki  “Tori was amazing. Not only did she make us all look beautiful but she helped me to feel so relaxed on the day. She really did to the extra mile and completely exceeded my expectations from a hair and make up artist. I would recommend tori in a second!”

 

Hannah  "Tori was brilliant at looking at pictures of me and understanding how I liked my make up without me having to explain too much. On the actual day she actually did my make up slightly different from the trial because I had a tan and I absolutely loved it. I felt like myself but with an added 'edge'"

 

Katie  “I am so glad I booked tori for our wedding day. She is a lovely person and you instantly feel comfortable and confident in her hands. Her knowledge and experience is fantastic. She made both me and my bridesmaids feel amazing on the day. We received many compliments on our make up and it was so lovely to have it feel so natural. We all loved our make up I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her!"

I met this amazing team at Hampstead Heath Pergola to create a one of my favourite shoots to date! It was a beautifully sunny morning, if not a little chilly (particularly if you weren’t in the sun!) Hair and makeup prep took place in the caretakers offices (a shed hidden amongst the trees!) I beautified our model while the team set about setting up outside when we came out the morning had broken, it was a beautiful day!

Siobhan and Sam – South Farm

[vc_row row_type=”row” use_row_as_full_screen_section=”no” type=”full_width” angled_section=”no” text_align=”left” background_image_as_pattern=”without_pattern” css_animation=””][vc_column][vc_column_text]In July I was back at South Farm for another wedding, this time for Siobhan and Sam.  I knew Siobhan years ago when we were at school together however at 16 we moved to different sixth forms and didn’t keep in touch! Like everyone you hear bits and pieces so I was delighted when she got in touch with me after hearing about my work!  It was a mini school reunion in the bridal suite as her videographer Dan Yeomans was also a school friend and shot my about me video last year.

I set to work creating half up, half down for the bridesmaids and a messy up do for the bride.  Makeup was kept natural with defined eyes across the board.  Siobhan looked absolutely stunning in her wedding dress, it was such a pleasure to be a part of her day.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_type=”row” use_row_as_full_screen_section=”no” type=”full_width” angled_section=”no” text_align=”left” background_image_as_pattern=”without_pattern” css_animation=””][vc_column][vc_gallery type=”image_grid” images=”1294,1288,1290,1291,1289,1292,1293,1287″ column_number=”2″ grayscale=”no” images_space=”gallery_without_space”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
