Real Weddings – Kirsty and the Thunder Storms!

On Saturday I went along to Kirsty’s house to get her and her bridal party ready.

As we have had the most amazing weather in the UK recently you can only imagine Kirsty’s disappointment when the biggest thunder, lightening and flash floods were forecast for her wedding day!  When I arrived at 8:30am the rain had cleared for a moment but the dark clouds were still very much above us. But that definitely did not dampen anyones mood!

Kirsty and her family had me in stitches at her trial and entertained me on the morning of the wedding, I feel like I have known them for years.

We did two trials with Kirsty the first one was great but the look she had chosen didn’t feel like her  so we did another and adapted it which was a good idea as on the day it was perfect.


We wanted a look that was heavier on the eyes, Kirsty aways wears eye liner on the lower water line so we kept that and built up a smoky eye to go with it. Having a natural olive skin tone we wanted the skin to glow and to finish the look we went for a deep pink lip colour.



For her hair I curled it all through and then braided it quite loosely over to one side and then used the rest of the hair to make a messy side bun. Kirsty had a beautiful headpiece that sparkled perfectly!


The bridesmaids all wore the most beautiful lilac coloured dresses. I kept all of their make up fairly natural using pinky brown shades on the eyes from the naked 3 palette. They all had their hair curled with a lose half up half down style.

And for her flower girl it was super simple with a few curls through the hair and a bit of glitter lip gloss.

You will be glad to know that as the ceremony started at 3pm the sunshine broke through the clouds and it didn’t rain again until later that evening!


Thanks for having me as part of your special day Kirsty, I hope it was amazing!

Stay Gorgeous

Grace xoxo
