Wedding Industry Awards 2012

I attended the Wedding Industry Awards 2012 last week that took place at Cafe De Paris in London’s West End.

The awards are only wedding industry awards that are voted for solely by the wedding clients of the suppliers who have entered; the only true representation of just how good wedding suppliers really are.

A big congratulations to everyone who won this year xx

The atmosphere at these awards are always electric… I feel honored and love being a  part of this industry. And always lovely catching up with people in the industry.

Im excited to let you all know that i will be putting myself up for nomination next year… so will ask all my beautiful brides to vote nearer the time. xx




Bright Pink Bride.

Perfect makeup on her wedding day means you don’t want to look overly made up. The rule of thumb is to enhance either your eyes or your lips, but not both at the same time. If you go for minimal eye makeup, do a bright pop of colour on the lips, but if you’re doing a smokier eye with a lot of drama, go for a softer lip colour.

A bright bold vibrant colour that I used on Louise’s wedding day was a MAC classic colour “Girl About Town” This beautiful bright pink, doesn’t look to overpowering and looks great on every bride.

Louise made pink a feature and added bright pink shoes and flowers to her outfit. She looked so beautiful, a wedding I will not forget.

Curvy Modern Mohawk

Lipstick is HOT right now, I think go red and bold with a bridal twist. Celebs like Gwen Stefani, Georgia Jagger and Katy Perry are all lovers of a brighter, vintage-esque sexy fuller lip.

My Top Tips to get your perfect red point.

• Smooth concealer over your lips to lock down the colour.
• Work in thin layers, starting from the middle of the lip and work outwards.

• Apply lip liner after the lipstick and Use a lip brush for a smother finish.
• Add clear gloss after to make lips look even fuller.

My favourite reds are Colour Fever Lipstick in 151 by Lancome, Signature hydra lustre lipstick in Rich Red by Estee Lauder and Moisture Drench Lipstick in Dare Devil by No.7

If you want a modern look with an edgy hair do, why not try a . This is a look both male and female can do! Adding curls to the your mohawk will make the look softer and more refined.
