Hair and makeup styling for a beautiful bride at Stanneylands, Wilmslow, Cheshire

Stanneylands Hotel, Wilmslow, Cheshire – whimsical hair and makup styling for my gorgeous bride

I have said it before and I will say it again … I love my job. But I especially love it when the brief I get from one of my clients is whimsical.

Sophie, who was getting married at the Stanneylands Hotel in Wilmslow, Cheshire came to her hair and makeup trial and showed me her dress. A stunning corsetted gown with flowers trailing up one side to her shoulder. We decided that such an amazing feature should be celebrated in the hair and makeup styling.

So … in the hair we created a braid in which we arranged eucalyptus leaves so it looked as though the leaves from the dress were growing up through Sophie’s hair creating a sort of fairy crown – think Queen Titania from a Midsummer’s night dream. With such beauty in the hair, we had to create a one of a kind makeup look. Sophie’s skin was unbelievably good – flawless and full of moisture. As there was nothing in particular that needed to be hidden (no spots or marks etc) we were able to use just a minimal amount of foundation so that the contours of the skin could be seen. Then we created a truly natural look with just hints of pink on the eyes and cheeks.

Thank you Sophie for letting me create a fairy goddess 🙂
