A gift of a wedding …

In December I was delighted to be asked to join a host of other wedding suppliers to give the ‘gift of a wedding’ to Karon and Peter. Karon was battling cancer and sadly had a terminal prognosis.

Rarely have I met a person as brave and strong as Karon. She was an absolute delight to work with and was very sure of the makeup that she wanted on her special day. A dark smokey eye, using blacks and greys was what she wanted, and her wish was my command.

To finish off the statement eye we added some Eldora lashes. For the rest of the look we relied on some bronzer to bring out the cheek bones and a neutral lip.

She looked utterly stunning alongside her bridesmaids. She wore a beautiful ivory gown which she had chosen in the weeks before her big day.

The day was captured beautifully by 5 Little Boys Photography, who took the still images, and Iain Yarwood Photography who created a beautiful video of the day. A selection of the photos and the video are below.

It is with great sadness that I write about this wedding and look at the photos and video, Karon lost her battle with cancer just two days after her wedding.

I will remember her always.
