Today I thought I would share some photos from the getting ready process on the big day. The wedding ceremony was at 6pm so I had the whole day to spend with my girlfriends and took plenty of time doing hair and make-up. I hated the idea of being isolated from everyone during the build-up so I invited all the girls to pop in and visit me and the bridesmaids, which was quite successful at helping to keep the nerves at bay. We had such a lovely, relaxed afternoon with Misha AKA Brandslut doing a magnificent job on everyone’s hair and Camilla doing most of the make-up for the wedding party. I needed something to keep me busy so I did some of my make-up myself and Camilla stepped in when I need some extra help or a second opinion! I think we can all agree that everyone looked gorgeous so a huge big thanks to her for working so hard to get the girls glammed up.
I had planned on a very bronzed look, a sort of “Greek Goddess” vibe with beachy waves and golden tones on the eyes. When it came down to it though, I decided a simple, classic look similar to my everyday make-up would be better so I kept the hair but toned down the tan. I’ve filmed a tutorial of this look which will go up later this week, so keep your eyes peeled for that and in the meantime enjoy these photos!
