Wedding Hairstyles

Whichever hairstyle you opt for on your big day, the most important thing is to make sure you'll feel comfortable with your hair all day long. So if you usually wear your hair down and feel uncomfortable wearing it up, your wedding day is not the day to experiment! No matter how stunning your hair is when its done if you're not comfortable it's no good to you. I would suggest you do what feels natural to you and also think about what will last throughout the day. You should definitely have a trial or two leading up to the big day this way you will leave nothing to chance. I'm going to share some bridal and bridesmaids hairstyles that I think you'll love.

A soft  wave is always popular and looks so elegant. However, if you're hair doesn't hold a curl that well, some hair stylists will advise clip in hair pieces. These hold a curl no problem and will fix onto your hair without anyone noticing. You could also add a diamond pin or a flower pin to enhance your look even more, especially for when the veil comes out later in the evening. A fabulous and timeless bridal look.

Next up is a style that is suitable for both brides and bridesmaids. A generally soft and light look works well for bridesmaids, nothing too over the top and complicated. Adding in a flower or two is a nice touch that can make the whole look a bit softer. If you're a bride to be and are thinking of wearing your hair up on the day, a bun is comfortable and elegant and you're hair can be styled in such a way that frames your face beautifully. This soft up-do is perfect for both a bride and a bridesmaid as it will last throughout the day.

If you're thinking of wearing your hair down on your wedding day but want a little something extra to make it more special, then a braid is the perfect addition to your look. Braids also help to keep your hair out of your face and can be worn with your hair half up -half down. They look stunning and will stay in throughout the day. Bridesmaids often chose this style too.

A very popular bridal hairstyle - the glamour/Hollywood wave. This is such an elegant and timeless look. If you want to do something a little different to your usual loose curls then this style is a great option. And if you want to add something to make it really stand out a jewelled hairpiece would be the perfect addition.

This next one would be gorgeous for a bridesmaid- it's simple and elegant and their hair will be up off their face. A classic ponytail with delicate waves incorporated is just stunning.

These are just some of the hairstyles that I personally love and wanted to share with you! So hopefully some future brides will draw some inspiration from this post. Remember that the most important thing is that you feel as beautiful as you look. Do something you'll be comfortable with all day and all night, it really is all about the way you feel on your special day. I'll do a blog post soon talking about some of my favourite hairstylists. Thanks as always for reading.

Booking your wedding reception venue

So you are engaged and its time to check out some wedding venues to have your reception at. My own advice is to go along to any wedding exhibitions that venues may have scheduled. Get to see the reception room decorated for a wedding, then whittle your final selection down to about 3 venues.

While some venues may appeal to you both there are some points that you may not have thought about. Your photographs are all you have left to remember your special day so here are some tips to consider when booking your venue.

Does the venue have any locations outside for photographs? 

I very often come across wedding venues with little or no outdoor locations for photographs. If this is the case, I always recommend to my couples that they pick a location either near to the church or to the wedding venue for bridal party/family & their couple shots.  A location that means something to the couple can be a lovely idea. Speaking to your photographer in advance of your wedding day about locations f…

My own, honest approach to a wedding

When it comes to photographing a wedding there isn't much I don't do. I do everything on the big day from helping the groom with his tie to blow-drying the creases out of the brides dress! For me the whole day is about more than than just capturing stunning images of the couple, it's about the experience in it's entirety. Helping the couple in that nerve wrecking lead up to the big day is all part of the process and it really pays off because when it comes to the wedding day we're all comfortable with each other and can enjoy the day together. We meet in my studio to chat about the important things like the time schedule for the day, the church, timing for photos etc. I even give them homework! My couples leave my studio armed with all the info I give them regarding the big day and I encourage them to tell their families where to be for photos and ask their families and bridal party members not to go missing until their photographs are taken.

On the day, I constan…

Top 4 Makeup Artists

I get asked all of the time to recommend makeup artists for the big day. It's such an important part of the wedding, every bride wants to look and feel her best on their wedding day so there really is no room for error when it comes to the makeup. It is so, so important to research the makeup artist you have in mind and to meet with them before the wedding to discuss what style you're thinking of going with and to have a trial so that you are happy on the day. Every bride wants to feel confident and comfortable on their wedding day. So this week I thought I'd share my top 4 recommended makeup artists! 

1) Derrick Carberry

Derrick is one of my absolute favourite people to work with in the wedding industry. Derrick is not only a fantastic makeup artist, he is also a very genuine and lovely guy. Girls love to have Derrick around on the morning of the wedding because he has a very unique way of putting everyone at ease and creating a relaxed and fun atmosphere. Very often, Mum…
