A Bride's Journey to Radiance: Real Bride Eleanor



There is something truly magical about a bride's journey from engagement to her wedding day. It's a time filled with love, anticipation and dreams of the perfect moment when she walks down the aisle! One of the most pivotal parts of this journey is ensuring she looks and feels her absolute best. Today, let’s walk through the story of Eleanor, a beautiful bride who chose to book me as her professional hair and makeup artist to help her shine on her special day.


The Beginning: Finding the Perfect Artist

Eleanor had always dreamt of her wedding day being a fairytale come true by booking her special day at The Old Hall Ely. With her date set, she turned her attention to finding the right hair and makeup artist. She wanted someone who could not only enhance her natural beauty but also provide a luxurious and calming experience.

After browsing through numerous portfolios and reading countless reviews, Eleanor found my work. From our first conversation, it was clear we had simularities. We discussed her wedding theme, her dress, and even the smallest details like her favourite shades of lipstick and the way she wanted her hair to fall.



The Trial Session: Crafting the Perfect Look

A few months before the wedding, Eleanor booked her preview session with me. This is an essential step, as it allows the bride to see how different looks come together and make any necessary adjustments. We spent a wonderful afternoon together, exploring various styles and looks.

During the session, we experimented with a classic half up half down as Eleanor loved the idea of having a romantic hairstyle with elements of her everyday hair implemented in the final look. With our initial discussions, Eleanor mentioned that she loves wearing her hair down and so did her fiance. She said she wouldn't feel herself if her hair was styled in an updo. She loved the idea of trialing a half up half down hairstyle. During her preview session, we started off creating a classic curl through her natural hair. But as time went on, Eleanor's hair was struggling to hold the curls. After discussing what would be best for her special day, we decided to use clip in hair extensions for Eleanor's hairstyle ensuring that the curls and hairstyle itself would hold for the entire day. For makeup, we played with various palettes, blending shades until we found the perfect combination that highlighted Eleanor's big blue eyes and complemented her skin tone.

Seeing her dream look come together was an emotional moment for Eleanor. She felt assured and excited, knowing she was in good hands!




The Wedding Day: A Seamless Experience

On the morning of her wedding, Eleanor felt calm and excited. I arrived early, bringing a sense of calm and professionalism.

As the hours passed, Eleanor watched in the mirror as her transformation unfolded. Her hair was styled into a classic half up half down hairstyle , adorned with delicate pearls that complemented her elegant dress. Her makeup was flawless – a natural, radiant glow with a touch of glamour. Every detail was meticulously attended to, ensuring she felt beautiful and confident.



The Final Touches: A Vision coming to life

When Eleanor stepped into her wedding dress and looked at herself in the mirror, she was overcome with emotion. She felt like a true bride, every bit the vision she had always dreamt of. Her hair and makeup perfectly complemented her dress and the overall aesthetic of her wedding.

As she walked down the aisle, she radiated confidence and joy. The photos captured that day show a bride glowing with happiness, her hair and makeup looking stunning from every angle. The professional touch had not only enhanced her natural beauty but also provided a stress-free, luxurious experience that allowed her to fully enjoy her special day.



The Afterglow: Memories to Cherish

Looking back, Eleanor knews that choosing to book a professional hair and makeup artist was one of the best decisions she made for her wedding. It wasn't just about looking beautiful, it was about feeling pampered, relaxed, and truly special. Her journey from engagement to wedding day was filled with wonderful memories, and her hair and makeup experience played a significant role in making her dream day a reality.

Every bride deserves to feel radiant on her wedding day. By entrusting her look to a professional, Eleanor was able to embrace every moment with confidence and grace, creating memories that will last a lifetime. And for me, being part of Eleanor's special day and helping her shine was an absolute honour. It's moments like these that fuel my passion and remind me why I love what I do – making brides feel their most beautiful and confident on the day they’ve always dreamed of!
