Real Bride: Wedding hair and make up for Elouise at The Gardens, Yalding

The Gardens at Yalding is a great choice for couples wanting an outdoor space with the wow factor. Full of colour and nature, even with the possibility of a teepee, it’s easy to see why this venue is becoming a really popular choice with couples looking for a relaxed day that they can make their own. As well as being a truly stunning setting for your big day it’s also totally customisable to meet with your personal needs, allowing you to create the exact ‘vibe’ that you want for your wedding.

Back in September of 2018 I visited The Gardens to provide wedding make up and hair for Elouise. Now it’s no secret that I LOVE styling red hair so this romantic twisted updo was the perfect match for me! Elouise was so unique in her personal style and I loved being given the opportunity to create her very own unique wedding look for her. From the bold eye make up to the individual way in which she wore her hair accessories, I had no doubt that Elouise likes to do things a little differently so I wasn’t surprised when these images dropped into my inbox and I couldn’t help but giggle!

I defy anyone to be able to look at Elouise’s pictures and not smile! Not only was this possibly one of the most colourful and beautifully decorated weddings I have ever seen, but her groom was possibly one of THE coolest guys on the planet! I mean, how many people do you know who marry a power ranger!?
