I was delighted when Christa asked me to do her bridal makeup for her evening wedding at The Mil at Gordleton, Lymington New Forest. Not least because the The Mill is right round the corner from me and I simply adore this gorgeous hotel and it’s ‘New England’ feel in the gardens.
Christa told me that her wedding was to be a relaxed evening affair, with just close friends and a nice meal – which I think is the ideal wedding. So she wanted her makeup to feel romantic, yet relaxed to fit her cocktail dress which she had especially made – something that she felt strongly should be an outfit she could use again and again. I kept the eyes bright, yet sophisticated with pinks/mauves and warm golds – finishing with a flawless base and a slick of Chanel lipstick.
It was an absolute pleasure doing Christa’s bridal makeup and she has also now become a good friend x
