Real Bride: Wedding hair and make up for Suzanne at The Orangery
Full name: Suzanne Bates-Glover (now Bushell!)
Wedding Date: 29/07/18
Venue: The Orangery
Photographer: Funky Pixel
My wedding style was….
Bright, bold and quirky. We steered away from the popular pastel wedding colours and went for what we love instead bright purple and teal. We added touches Lego (without making it too “Children’s Party”)
My wedding hair was….. beautiful!
Katie did such a wonderful job of making it very me and making sure it held all day.
My wedding make up was…. Stunning!
I’ve honestly never felt so good about the way I looked before or since. It had a “Hollywood glamour” feel to it and stayed out absolutely all day.
The thing I love most about my wedding day was….
The people. We had such a fun time with our family and friends and the dance floor was packed the entire night to the very end.
My venue was perfect because…..
It looked absolutely beautiful, it was exclusive for just our wedding and catered well for our day both inside and outside. The planners were amazing at keeping everything on track, keeping us calm and making last-minute alterations when things didn’t go to the original plan.
My favourite photo was….
Oooh hard to choose, but from these:
I chose Katie because …..
she had a great reputation, I had seen her work on Facebook and followed her for a while. I was so glad that I did because she did an amazing job with the hair and make up for all of us and it stayed out all day. On the day she arrived at the venue before we did, was set up and ready to go. She was professional, friendly and did a fantastic job. She even took some fab photos on her phone that are among some of my favourite of the day!
If I could give other brides one piece of advice it would be….
Don’t worry about things that are not in your control. Not everything went to plan on our day, it poured with rain all day in the middle of a heatwave and was the ONLY day the whole month that it rained all day. It meant that some things we had planned had to be scrapped; our outdoor ceremony, our white bouncy castle and our evening outdoor BBQ. But despite that we had a beautiful and emotional ceremony, everybody still had fun and everybody ate. We still had a fantastic day.
