Sarah and Lewis tied the knot on 31st March 2016 and as you can see, it was an absolutely glorious day! This was my first time doing wedding makeup at Gosfield Hall and I was absolutely blown away. The grounds were stunning and the Bridal Suite… WOW. If you are looking for a venue with a statement room, whether it be for photographs or for your wedding night, this venue by far has the most jaw-dropping room I have ever seen. Marble pillars, the room draped in gold and a huge four poster bed, what more could a girl want!
Sarah came through to me rather last minute, a casual four weeks before the wedding date! Cool as a cucumber, she explained that her original make-up artist was now unavailable due to some personal circumstances, and was hoping to book me for the big day. Never one to let a Bride-in-need down, I was pleased that I was available to help.
Two weeks before the wedding I went to Sarah’s mum’s home (conveniently around the corner from me!) where we carried out the trial run for them both. Sarah wasn’t one for wearing much makeup at all, so requested something that would enhance her facial features but that was very light and natural to look at. Needless to say the trial was a complete joy and I left feeling excited for the up coming day!
The Big Day!
The morning of Sarah and Lewis’ wedding was a calm and relaxed one with everything running smoothly. The bridal party got ready in a room just around the corner from the bridal suite presumably to keep the suite looking neat and tidy for the married couples return! There was makeup to be done for 3 bridesmaids, Sarah’s mum and the bride herself. Click here to see the before and afters! For Sarah’s makeup we went for a soft, neutral eye with some shading in the outer corners to add some definition. A rosy pink lip finished off the look beautifully.
The Beautiful Bride
Sarah looked truly amazing in her dress, with her hair styled by her local hair dressers, Headmasters in Braintree. Her professional photos were taken by these guys, who I think you’ll agree are pretty fantastic.
It was an absolute pleasure to be part of Sarah’s special day and I wish her and Lewis all the luck and love in the world throughout their marriage. xx
