Real Bride: Wedding hair and make up for Natasha at Marleybrook House

You may recognise this bride from last months supplier spotlight feature. Natsah got married at the beautiful Marleybrook House last year and I just couldn’t resist sharing a few more of her pictures from the talented Emma Midgen Photography.

It’s clear to see just how much fun everyone had at this wedding and with a venue like Marleybrook there’s something for everyone! From vintage décor to fairground fun this venue has it all. Nestled in the beautiful Kent Countryside, Marleybrook is a hidden gem for those couples looking for a relaxed but truly impressive wedding day.

I got Natasha and her bridesmaids ready on site in the designated bridal studio. Fitted with long mirrors and a comfy seated area there’s plenty of room for the entire bridal party to sit together and chat whilst I make a start on the wedding hair and make up magic!

Natasha wore her long light brown hair up and off her neck. We wanted to go for something bridal but relaxed and by twisting each individual section I was able to create a flowing style that sat at the nape of her neck. We left some pieces free flowing around her face for an undone softness and added a cathedral length veil for a show stopping silhouette.

When it comes to make up a lot of brides tell me they want to look “like themselves …but on a really good day!’ I firmly believe that make up should be used to enhance your features not mask them and it’s important to me that when providing a wedding hair and make up service I stay true to the brides desired look. For Natasha she wanted something timeless and classic and we achieved this by enhancing her eyes and giving her a warming glow. I used airbase make up for the base, an option I offer to all of my brides as I know it photographs well and provides brides with the assurance that it really will last then the duration of the wedding day. 

When it comes to bridal lipstick it’s important to choose a shade that you not only feel comfortable wearing , but that looks how you want it to in the photographs. Natasha opted for a nude lipstick, applied generously, and with a tone that matched her natural lip colour. When choosing a nude lipstick for your wedding day it’s important that you choose something that doesn’t make your lips look smaller by blending them too closely to the colour of your skin.  If you want a few more tips when it comes to choosing your bridal lipstick then have a read of my previous wedding lipstick blog.
