Freezing conditions and Wonderful Weddings at Leez Priory
Its been another interesting weekend with the freezing wedding conditions. I met with a lovely bride called Sarah on Friday along with her mother and sister and bridesmaids. Sarah had the most beautiful dress, it was such good fun everyone helping her into it with her mum and sister lacing her up. On Sunday I met with a lovely lady called Anna. Unfortunately due to the -15 freezing conditions at Leez Priory, the cottage where the bride gets ready, had no hot water or heating so Anna could not get ready there. Anna had to get ready at a lovely farm house a few miles away. Anna was so calm and relaxed considering she still had to get to the venue in time for her ceremony. I had to take Anna to the venue in my car, in her dressing gown! I’m sure she will look back and smile at the memory!
Today I met with another lovely bride to be called Vicky. Vicky had such a beautiful hair comb which has been made to go with her beautiful wedding dress. Vicky opted for a beautiful weaved style and a very natural radiant makeup. Please see my photos below of Leez Priory, taken by Peter Kelk, www.peterkelk.com who was the photographer at Davina’s wedding on Sunday 5th Feb. Also below after photos of Vickys hair, from the trial we did today. Gail x
