The New Mrs O’Keefe

Kim messaged me in June this year enquiring if I would be available for her wedding day in August. A good friend of hers had had her hair done by me before and spoke “very highly” of me. To say that made day was understatement. To hear people spreading the word about my creativity with hair and my business overwhelms me every time! Kim explained to me that some of the guests were travelling from Liverpool and would want their hair doing. I knew I would fit in with the scousers well ;). 

We arranged a trial which went really well, but Kim had been sent the wrong extensions so we arranged to do another one within the cost. The second trial went perfect and Kim decided on a lovely plaited updo. We also arranged for Kim to come back and have some Eyelash extensions done with me before the wedding. 

The guests from Liverpool messaged me with their chosen styles which were mainly from my website. I decided to get some help from the gorgeous Hayley Lovelock to do a Blowdry and an updo on 2 guests and they were amazing! It just meant I didn’t have to rush as they all needed to be ready by 11am. 

I arrived at the stunning Horsley Towers in Surrey, which is part of the Devere hotels estate. What a breathtaking backdrop that is for your wedding photos! The sun was shining! 

I was greeted by the lovely Tony (Kim’s Father in law to be) who took me into the venue. We had a little chat about Liverpool and I instantly felt so welcome, they were all just so, so nice! Kim’s gorgeous Mother in law to be Maria even made me a cuppa, I was set for the morning! 

I started by fitting Kim’s hair extensions and pin curling her hair. She was calm but she hadn’t slept too well the night before, something about her sister snoring…..Sorry Mel! Haha! 

The scousers were arriving into the room to get their hair done, we love a good pamper! The gorgeous Ellie was in the seat with her super thick hair. She went for a plaited curly half up half down hair style which I had previously done on one of the Prom girls, it looked amazing! A style which was perfect for her thick hair! 

Then Laura was in the seat for Pin curls, she wanted a half up half down style with twists, another popular style this summer and it really added volume to her hair.

I then had the lovely Marie (Mother of the Groom) in the chair for some Pin curls. The bouncy curls really showed off the gorgeous colours in her hair and we added a fascinator which set it all off. 

Kim was back from makeup, which was done by the talented Kristiana Hamshaw. Kim seemed nervous, but her sister and Bridesmaid Mel had everything under control. Whilst I was doing Kim’s hair, her dad came down to recieve his gift from her and I could instantly tell how close knot Kim is to her dad and sisters which was lovely to see. Kim’s father later thanked me for everything I had done! 

Kim went for a gorgeous updo whicj consisted of plaited and a chignon, when I saw her in her beautiful wedding gown I knew that that style was meant for that dress! I fitted Kim’s veil, Kristiana added a red lip, then this lady was a beautiful, elegant bride…….

Kim’s dad then came in and there wasn’t a dry eye in the room, our job here was done! 

Congratulations Mr & Mrs O’Keefe, wishing you lots of luck and happiness in your marriage!
