Fun Festival wedding
Fun Festival Wedding
I’m always so honored when I’m asked to take part in a brides wedding day by styling their hair, and even more so when asked by a friend.
When I heard the exciting news that Nikki and Dan had got engaged at a foo fighters concert I was so happy for them. I was even happier when I was asked by Nikki to style her hair for the day and when she showed me the styles she liked my eyes lit up and I was so excited to create this for her.
The trial for Nikki’s wedding hair took place at my home, I love this part, it’s where I get to find out all about THE dress, styles ideas, colours themes and venue details. We tried out the amazing fairy tale boho styles that Nikki had liked and we incorporated a few clip in hair pieces to add to the volume of Nikki’s hair, Once I had created this and shown Nikki the back of her hair in the mirror (Always the stressful part showing someone what you’ve done hoping they love it) and she did!
The style Nikki chose worked so well with her dress and wedding style and I loved creating it for her and have had many requests since for a similar style.
Nikki and Dan got married in a quaint little church in Sudbury and had a fun festival tepee style wedding reception just over the road after the ceremony.
Nikki had hired a beautiful cottage not far from the church and stayed there with friends and family the night before the wedding ready for bridal preparations to begin in the morning.
The wedding morning was calm and smooth with hair styling taking place upstairs and makeup downstairs the bride and the bridesmaids were coming and going between me and the lovely Ashley from Ashley Kay beauty doing the makeup.
As always the morning flew by with a blink of an eye and it was time to get into our outfits,
There was a buzz of excitement in the air as the children got dressed into their outfits. Nikki wore the most beautiful strapless full skirt gown by Lazaro. We finished off her look by adding a headpiece that worked really well with the look and with a few makeup touches she was ready.
Being a guest at a wedding and a supplier can be tricky but also so much fun as you get to see the whole day unfold after hearing so much about the planning from your brides.
I always love to see the professional photos from my bride’s weddings as it really gives me a sense of how the day went.
Quick change for me and we were off to the church.
Nikki arrived at the church in a VW camper van and looked absolutely beautiful.
Slight little hiccup as Nikki walked into the church, she snagged her beautiful wedding dress on some chicken wire going in so had to be reassured all was ok and after a few deep breaths she was ready to walk down the aisle.
There was a little surprise for us all after the ceremony as Nikki and Dan had arranged a christening for their son, it was really lovely to be a part of that too and made the day that little bit more special.
After the ceremony and photos were taken it was time to head over the road to where the party would begin. A fantastic set up of tepees and an outside bar were to be found and inside you could see a gorgeous set up for the wedding breakfast and a fun table plan filled with the guest’s photos to find their places.
With some vintage VW camper vans on site and some light up LOVE letters that the groom had made there were plenty of photo opportunities to be had by the guest’s.
For the evening entertainment they had a fantastic band that was so much fun. They were interactive with the guests as they danced and sang with us on the dance floor. I would highly recommend them they were amazing.
When the evening came to an end the newlyweds spent the night in a beautiful luxury yurt style tent on site along with many of us that also camped in tents and camper vans too.
It was such a fun and wonderful day and I’m so honoured to have been asked to play a part in it. Thank you so much for having me.
