When my friends get married I usually offer to do their hair and makeup for their wedding gift. We’ll get together a few months before the wedding and do a trial just like I would for any other client. On the day it’s a little different – usually I’ve made a lot more effort with my own hair and makeup for a start! I’ll have my team there doing the bridesmaids or other wedding guests so I can focus on the bride and have fun/be a bridesmaid/special guest!
My friend Lydia’s wedding was no different, although with a 4PM ceremony we had a lovely leisurely morning to get ready! I’ve known Lydia for years, I remember her first date with her now husband Max so it was so special to play a part in their special day. They chose to get married it Devon at Hotel Endsleigh where they got engaged.
For hair and makeup we did the same makeup look as we had practiced years ago in our first house together in London. I think it was a friends birthday when I did Lydia’s makeup for the first time – she said then “this is what I want for my wedding okay, remember this!” For her hair we went for a classic half up half down but with plenty out at the front to flick with.
