19 Nov Denbies vineyard wedding for gorgeous bride Claire
Denbies vineyard wedding for gorgeous bride Claire.
Another gorgeous bride in the amazing setting that is Denbies vineyard in Dorking, Surrey. It couldn’t have looked prettier with all of the vines in their full grape phase. And lovely Claire, fitted the scene perfectly. Always calm, always versatile and always the elegant bride that she so certainly was.
Claire is someone that has naturally straight, fairly fine (but not thin) hair and wears it down in a centre parting every day no matter what. Happy to try anything new she was certain that curls wouldn’t stay in her hair for long, (from memories of her doing it in her younger days) and that having it up wouldn’t suit her.
At Claire’s trial I curled it and tried a side parting and pinned bits up in various ways however it was quite clear that ‘going on the side’ did not suit her and it really wasn’t Claire. We stayed with the centre parting, gave a little bit of height at her crown and pinned the sides up. It was enough to make Claire feel ‘special’ and glamorous and thankfully, after using my super duper curling products and curling with a ‘wand’, she told me later that evening her curls did in fact stay put. Hooray! Claire was happy, and so was I.
Claire has amazing skin so it was easy to really make her look flawless and the pretty bride that she was. Claire doesn’t wear make-up on a day-to-day basis so putting a lot on wasn’t going to work and wasn’t going to make her feel like herself so pretty pinks and some definition on her eyes, including some individual lashes, was all we needed. Voila! A soft and natural look to go with her equally soft and elegant lace dress.
