Wedding Date: 28th November 2015
I first got an email from Ashley in July 2014 looking for a hair & makeup artist. I sent her through all my info through and didn't hear anything for a couple of months. Then October came and Ashley emailed again asking if I was still available and would it be ok to meet with me before she made a decision.
This wasn't a problem - it's an important decision choosing your wedding day hair & makeup artist as they are with you quite a bit during the day and it just needs to "feel right".
We met at a local café and had coffee, she bought one of her bridesmaids along and they asked me a few questions and I asked all about her wedding. Upon leaving I gave Ashley a copy of my pricing and said I'd follow up in a few days.
Ashley then contacted me advising she wished to book - AWESOME!
Over the next year leading up to her wedding, we were in constant contact via email, discussing the type of hair and makeup look she would like. Ashley came for her trial in August 2015 and it went great - she wanted a nice natural look but still enough makeup that would stand out in photos.
28th November then came and me and my assistant for the day Lani from Lani's Hair Boutique went into the hills of Massey, Auckland to get her bridal party of 4 ready. It was a fun morning getting them all ready, the girls were wearing blue bridesmaids dresses so I decided on a soft grey smokey eye for them and Ashley's makeup we did slightly darker from her trial and she decided she wanted red lipstick to go with her red shoes!
The girls were getting ready at the Mother of the Groom's house and after we'd finished the bridal party she asked if I could do her makeup - we had time on our side so away I went while Lani did some extra hair for the two flowergirls.
Ashley recently sent me through some photos of her wedding which I'll put below - always love getting photos through, I like to see how everything all comes together after the hair and makeup xx
As I'm now based in Tauranga - I still do the odd wedding up in Auckland, don't hesitate to contact me if you would like a quote.
