I first met Lisa at my friend Mary & Graham’s wedding in April. Chatting away in the loos (as us ladies do), Lisa mentioned that she needed a Hairstylist for her Wedding day- so obviously I jumped at the chance!
We were put in touch and arranged a trial for some Eyelash extensions and Wedding hair. Lisa is a bubbley Geordie gal who is so laid back and I knew that she totally trusted my opinions and my work. The Eyelashes were “better than my Mac ones”, result Number 1! The hair trial was easy peasy and over within 2 hours with a style in the bag and a quick message to my mate Sue from Genie-Belle Creations and we had a bespoke Bridal Hair vine sorted too!
I woke at 4am on Saturday 17th June, the weather was stunning! Myself and Alexandra (Very Bettie) set off for Twyford Farm to go and get everyone ready. Twyford Farm is set in the Beautiful Sussex Countryside and was a stunning place to get everybody ready!
Lisa’s wedding wasn’t a small one, oh no, she had 8 Bridesmaids, so I knew I would need some help. I called on Alexandra from Very bettie to help prep some hair and she did a few styles- if you love Vintage Hair & Makeup then Alex is your girl! She is also fabulous at Microblading!
Back to the prep…..
I started by pin-curling Lisa’s gorgeous long blonde hair so she could go and do whatever last minute bits that she needed to!
We then started prepping and styling all 8 of Lisa’s Bridesmaids who went for a gorgeous soft updo and we added some Gypsophilia for that ‘summer wedding boho’ feel.
We had our work cut out for us, these ladies were serious ‘Hair goals’ ranging from long, thick, short, colourful wonderful hair!
We worked really well with the amazing MUA who was Lucy Neale, she produced all of the stunning makeup for the wedding!
I finished with Lisa’s hair, so it was time to add the stunning Hair vine that Sue from Genie-Belle Creations had so kindly made. This hairvine really complimented Lisa’s look but it was also really unique. Beautiful work and Sue’s amazing work is consistent and affordable for what you get!
I then did Lisa’s mum’s hair after it had been prepped by Alexandra. Linda is such a lovely lady, I had met her a few days before and instantly warmed to her. We went for a simple half up half down hairstyle and she finished it off with a beautiful fascinator.
Right, let’s talk about Jennie West now! Jennie is an amazing seamstress who I met at the first Wedding fair I did back in February. She is also a ‘Fairy Godmother’ as I like to call her- you know, like the ones from Cinderella, she will come and make sure you are in your dress correctly and that it is as comfy as a Wedding dress can be! Please go and check out Jennie’s services, the dresses that she makes are just to die for!
Lisa, the new Mrs Hardwick, to you, your mum and your army of stunning Bridesmaids I wish you all the happiness in the world with your husband! Thankyou for being a dream to do Hair, Lashes and Brows on!
