Our Lake Como Wedding for Sarah's Big Day. xx

Thursday, November 15, 2018

Myself and Michelle were lucky again to fly back to Lake Como for yet another stunning Wedding for Sarah and Dan. This time we were the other side of the lake, which was just as beautiful. 



We had so much fun with Sarah and her beautiful bridal party helping with there hair and makeup at Villa Regina Teodolinda next door to George Clooney's house. It is such glamorous setting, I can see why the rich and famous love it here.  

Such a perfect back drop for Sarah and Dan to say “I do” xx

Sarah opted for an enhanced natural beauty look, with a golden smoky eye and flawless skin. With soft natural waves, and pined up softly adding flowers to finish the look.

I used a hyaluronic hydra primer from By Terry. Foundation was applied using a mix of Tom Ford's Waterproof Foundation, Rosewood shade and a Dolce & Gabbana which is a luminous liquid foundation to give a very natural silk shimmer look. To lock the foundation in place I used a mineral illuminating powder which still keeps a natural look without a caked on look.

I enhanced Sarah’s eyes using warm golden shades from Tom Ford and a brown cream shimmery eyeshadow from Charlotte Tilbury. I added some individual medium and long lashes to open the eye. 


Final touches were soft pink cheeks and a soft pink to the lips to match.

With Sarah’s hair I set the hair using GHD strangers curling each section and pinning it up. I left the hair to set while applying Sarah’s makeup.  

I took the hair down and brushed the hair though to make the curls look softer  and natural. I sectioned the hair to create a half half down look.  This is a great option if you normally wear you hair down but looking for something a little different and special for your big day.

Sarah looked so beautiful, and even more when she stepped into her amazing statement dress by designer Hayley Paige. An incredible dress which matched Sarah on her big day.

Myself and Michelle loved our time in Italy and we are both looking forward to the summer next year so we can pop over to Lake Como again.
