Hair & make-up for a wedding at Oatlands Park Hotel in Weybridge, Surrey

“My husband was completely blown away when I walked into the room.  He loved my hair and make-up and I got so many compliments from our guests.   Thank you for making me look beautiful and for making me feel like a princess!”Michelle Thomas

Gorgeous bride Michelle got married at Oatlands Park Hotel in Weybridge in Surrey on a sunny September day:

Oatlands Park Hotel is a Grade II Listed historic country house, set within 10 acres of picturesque grounds, with views of the the Broadwater lake and the Surrey countryside. The magnificent grounds were originally the site of a grand Tudor palace built by Henry VIII in 1538, and other monarchs, including Elizabeth I, James I and Charles I, also resided at Oatlands during their reign. Whether you are planning a grand ceremony and reception for up to 250 guests, or a more intimate affair for close family and friends, Oatlands Park Hotel can offer a variety of options and packages to suit you.

Michelle’s wedding day was captured by Surrey based wedding photographers Kirsten & Denise at Coco Nova Studio:

After hydrating Michelle’s skin with Super Facialist Rose Day Cream, I tapped on Clarins Instant Smooth primer to fill in any open pores. I then buffed in Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder foundation in shade no. 6, and Benefit Boi-ing Concealer in shade no. 2 to cover a little darkness she had on her under-eye area.

I then set Michelle’s base with setting powder and a mid-toned bronzing powder, before adding some peach blusher and a light golden highlighter on her cheekbones (I used Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in ‘Moonstone’ for this).

For a warm brown soft smoky eye, I used the shades ‘Desert Sand’, ‘Oud’ and ‘Musk’  from the Huda Beauty Desert Dusk Eyeshadow Palette, followed by a flick of black eyeliner and Ardell 110 lashes for more definition on the eyes.

Michelle wanted a subtle nude lip, so I applied L’Oreal lipstick in ‘MLBB’, which is a glossy nude shade.

Michelle wanted to wear her thick and naturally curly hair down, so I created a glamorous style, to suit her elegant gown. I straightened and then curled her hair on a medium wand, and pinned it to set.  Later, I very gently brushed out her curls using a paddle brush, sprayed in to prevent any frizz, and swept her hair to one side with a sparkly comb, to create a classic look with echoes of old Hollywood film stars.
