Real Weddings – Amy’s secret wedding!

It’s very rare that I am able to fit a Bride in my diary when they book only four weeks prior to their big day, but luckily I was free and I am so glad I got to be part of Amy’s special day with a twist!


Amy is a red lipstick fan which I love, so it was obviously a must for her wedding day. I used a mix of a CC Cream from Arbonne and mac’s Face and Body foundation to get the perfect mix and coverage on the skin, using Arbonnes mineral powder to set everything. A light dust of a dusky pink blush over the cheeks completed the skin leaving it fresh and flawless.

For Amy’s eye I used a natural cream base and used a pinky brown tone through the socket for definition, a nice sweep of eye liner and some individual lashes.

We wanted a matte lip colour with good staying power so I went with Dangerous (annoyingly this was a limited edition colour!) which has an orange undertone and was perfectly striking.


Amy’s hair is nice and thick, I used my GHD’s to add a loose wave through the ends. I made two small fishtail braids which I wrapped around the back which created a really nice detail at the back with out being fussy. Amy was going to be wearing a flower crown headband later in the evening which would go with the braids really nicely.

Now the twist to Amy’s wedding was that it was a secret wedding. It was a really simple ceremony with Amy and her husband to be along with their two friends who were acting as witnesses. It was Amy’s 30th birthday the day after so she was having a party that evening, her guests thought it was a surprise party for her, little did they know the surprise was on them when they found out Amy and Russ had tied the knot!

Congratulations guys, I wish you all the happiness in the world!

Stay Gorgeous

Grace xoxo
