Braxted Park, Essex – Gail Gardner Wedding Hair and Makeup

October 28, 2012

On Saturday I spent the day with Lauren Zimber and her bridal party at the stunning Braxted Park.   Lauren had hardly slept at all the night before her wedding but with all the adrenalin of the wedding morning, Lauren did not feel tired at all.   Lauren had the most amazing longest thickest hair you could imagine and as her wedding was not until 3pm I had ample of time to create her perfect hairstyle.  I carried out the hairstyles for the bride and the bridal party.  They all looked wonderful.  Photos to follow soon.   Next wedding this week is at the beautiful Leez Priory.

Leez Priory

October 21, 2012

Today I worked with a lovely bride called Clare who married at Leez Priory.  What a beautiful and perfect autumnal day.  Clare was fabulous all morning but just an hour before her wedding ceremony the nerves set in.  That last hour is a tricky one!  Butterflies are everywhere!!  Clare’s mother was equally as nervous but they both looked so beautiful.  I carried out their hair and makeup and gave the bridesmaids a hair and makeup lesson at the same time!!!  It was great fun.  Congratulations Clare and I cannot wait to share the photos with everyone.    Gail xx
