I had the pleasure of being Make-up artist to Hayley, Mother of the Bride and Mother of the Groom plus 5 Bridesmaids this weekend!
It was an early start for a 3 pm wedding. The venue was The Orangery, Settrington, North Yorkshire. I haven't worked there before, it was absolutely stunning!
Hayley and her wedding party got ready at the nearby cottage which is right next to a quaint little church and then The Orangery is next to that. It is a family that own the estate and they live on the grounds too. Apparently they only take on a few weddings each year and places are very limited, it is very exclusive.
Hayley is a dance teacher and is used to and loves make-up, she wasn't afraid of a little bit more make-up than what she would usually wear for daytime.
I absolutely loved doing her make-up as she has the most gorgeous big eyes and skin to die for!
I used mainly Bobbi Brown products to even out her skin, eye makeup was kept neutral and I added some long, wispy false eyelashes from Ardell which complimented her big eyes and made them the focal point.
I love to see freckles through foundation, I don't personally like to see a thick layer of foundation, especially on a young lady, I don't think it looks very nice and it is just not needed. Everything was kept light and classic. I added some cream blush and a smidge of highlighter. For lips I used a nude pink shade from Charlotte Tilbury, (after the wedding Josh, the Groom said that he was impressed with the lipstick as it didn't come off when he kissed her!)
Hayley sent me a message the day after the wedding to say how much she loved her makeup and how it lasted all evening without one make-up re-touch!
My Husband and I were very lucky to be invited to the wedding too and we thoroughly enjoyed it, it was really magical!
