On Hair and Makeup:
Tracking down a hair and makeup Artist: "I booked my hair and makeup through MG Hair and Make Up. I found them online and chose them because they were so flexible in supplying an artist who was available on Christmas Eve, and able to do my hair and makeup in our hotel room. The results were phenomenal and I couldn't have asked for a nicer person to spend my morning with."
Hair and makeup on the Day: "Ashley met me at our hotel at 8 a.m. Prior to her arriving I had sent her some photos of what I wanted which she bought with her. I had washed and straightened my hair so it was easy for her to work with. She then curled it softly and pinned my fringe up. Then she did my makeup and waited for our videographers to arrive so she was there to get some pre-wedding footage. She followed my strict instructions of having a minimalist yet flawless look for makeup. I don’t usually wear a lot of makeup so I didn’t want to go over-the-top, but wanted to look beautiful. My hair and makeup survived all day through the windy conditions and location changes — I could not have been happier with the result, especially as I took a gamble never having worked with Ashley before."
