Weddings are absolute chaos. They’re a lot of fun, but definitely chaotic! The morning of Joan’s wedding was just that. The bride was running around, going back and forth doing last minute things for the wedding and ran about an hour late – yet she still remained so calm and smiled the entire day. Not many people would handle the stress as well as Joan did and that’s what makes her such an amazing person. I’ve known Joan for a few years now and she has greeted everyone with a beautiful smile.
I was so excited to do Joan’s hair for her wedding because I was lucky enough to attend! I just love weddings, so seeing the bride walk down the aisle is such a wonderful feeling. As I watched Joan walk down, I thought to myself “wow, I helped her get ready for one of the biggest days of her life!”.
We styled Joan’s hair with an upstyle for the ceremony and changed it for the reception into a half up style. Changing your hair for your reception is something bride’s think can be easily done. Often, when you take your hair down from a certain upstyle, it doesn’t look too good because you’ve sprayed it in place to be styled up. That’s why you need to work with your hairstylist to create an upstyle which can be easily taken apart and restyled. If you aren’t going to get your hairstylist to fix up your hair for the reception, the versatility of your ceremony hairstyle is even more crucial.
Bridesmaid’s hair was styled with big curls, which look fabulous with their long purple gowns.
I didn’t get many photos of the flowergirl, but I also curled her hair very lightly and put the flower crown over it. Hannah was so cute, this was her first time being a flowergirl and she was such a pro! She walked down perfectly!
Francesca did the hair and makeup of one of the sponsors too! Simple curls for her because her hair is quite short and natural makeup.
