Vintage Bridal Style

I was delighted to be part of Carrieann’s special day. Her 1950s theme was something totally different to what I am used to but absolutely loved doing this makeup. The red lipstick against her pale skin was striking and bold. A look that suited her skin tone and a makeup artists dream to create!

The wedding took place at the beautiful East Sussex National in Uckfield.  The weather was slightly overcast but that didn’t dull the atmosphere.  Carrieann wanted a 1950s inspired makeup look with thick eyeliner and bright lips.

  • KIKO Waterproof Mascara

All of her Bridesmaids had similar style makeup looks with pin curls in their hair. All of the bridal party looked glamorous and it felt like we had stepped back in time when they were ready to leave for the ceremony.

Carrieann wore a beautiful handmade dress with lace and beading detail.  The groom wore a dark suit with a bright red open necked shirt.  The Bridesmaids wore red, knee length flare dresses, with Carrieann’s younger sister wearing a white dress filled with red petals and a matching red jacket.  

The evening saw guests dancing the stroll and the jive, which the bride and groom were incredible at!

Thank you for allowing me to be part of your special day!
