This weekend I took another big step towards the big day and visited the wonderful Cambridge Makeup Artist at her studio for my hair and makeup trial.
I’m sure you are all thinking “hair and makeup trial.. sounds like the ultimate dream” but I was feeling the nerves and the excitement didn’t make much of an appearance until the lovely Kerry opened the door. Thank goodness for Kerry. A lovely, beautiful lady who made me feel comfortable from the very beginning and she can have a laugh too which was greatly appreciated. I knew very quickly that the worrying was unnecessary and a big weight had been lifted.
Unlike some other brides I had no clue on what hair style or makeup look I was going for and this was not an issue. I’m sure brides having none of their own ideas can either be a dream come true or an absolute nightmare for professionals like Kerry, but thankfully she had ideas that perfectly suited my wedding dress and theme within seconds. Another worry that had been on my mind for a while.
The whole experience felt like an enjoyable pamper session and I felt at complete ease, of course bringing a close friend (and bridesmaid) along helped this too. The studio is a comfortable and luxurious feeling space and it’s stocked with everything needed to get a true image of your desired wedding look. The heaps of stunning high-end makeup were calling me.
It’s safe to say that Kerry knows her stuff and the awards around the room only emphasise this fact. I had the perfect hair and makeup combo that was created on the first go and I couldn’t be happier with the results (which you will see at a later date).
Kerry took a plan of all the makeup we used during the session so there shouldn’t be any surprises on the day and all of my questions had been answered throughout. It really was a fabulous experience that I half wish I could do again, because who doesn’t want to feel pampered?
