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.

Opulent – Wedding Inspiration

The location was Kingshill Barn in Kent and we were lucky enough to be there on a boiling summers day, set in the middle of a nature reserve and surrounded by beautiful countryside it is an idilic wedding venue.  We created two different looks and set ups for the shoot – a ceremony for which we kept the hair and makeup more natural and then the evening ceremony for which we created a more glam look including a red lip.

Louisa and Sam – Kent

[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 late September I was in Kent to beautify the already gorgeous Louisa, and her bridesmaids, for her wedding to Sam.  Louisa had booked me for her wedding after her friend Liz had recommended me after she booked me to do her wedding hair in 2013.  I love doing weddings through recommendations and sometimes even seeing past brides as bridesmaids – I didn’t see Liz on this occasion unfortunately.

I must have exchanged over 100 emails with Louisa – I have 82 in one thread in my inbox – we also did two trial runs of her hair and makeup so by the time her wedding came round it felt as if we had been friends for years!  In fairness she did book 11months in advance of her wedding so it had been a while!

Louisa went for a side up do with some beautiful silk flowers to accessorise it.  Her makeup was fresh keeping the definition to the eyes and soft pinks on the cheeks and lips.

When Louisa emailed me after the wedding she was already missing it:

“Literally had the best day ever and then the most amazing honeymoon and suddenly its all over! cant believe it! its hard enough getting used to no longer planning a wedding (I miss it!) then its big time holiday blues!!  It is so lovely being married though  such a nice feeling!”

Dana and Oli – Kent

[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]Back in July 2013 I was in the small Kent village of Tenterden with my fabulous assistant Katie for Dana and Oli’s wedding.  They were actually getting married near by at Oli’s family home but the bridal prep was all done in a beautiful B&B where the bridal party had spent the night before.  Myself and Katie got Dana, her mum and her five bridesmaids ready in the cool surroundings of an old cottage while outside was heating up to be one of the hottest days of the year.

The weather was truly beautiful which you can see in these beautiful pictures that Dana sent me this week alongside her kind words:

“I just wanted to say a BIG thank you for making me feel so beautiful on my wedding day! I have had nothing but lovely words from friends and family about my hair and makeup, and it’s all thanks to you! I couldn’t have imagined anything better than what you did for me. And a big thank you from me and my bridesmaids for doing their hair and makeup so beautifully, they were all thrilled with their looks!”
