Allanah’s Gorton Monastery Wedding

Hair and makeup for a wedding at Gorton Monastery, Manchester

Allanah was the first of my brides to have her wedding at Gorton Monastery, which is a really unique venue in Manchester. I had a great morning getting her ready for her big day. I love that you can see how happy she was all day in the pictures below. Allanah has super long thick hair which she usually wears down. She wanted an up-do for the wedding but didn’t want her hair to be hidden at the back (it would have been a shame to hide such beautiful hair under a veil!) In the end we decided on loose and relaxed chignon that swept from the side of her face to the back. I kept the front nice and soft across her face.

I emphasised her eyes with warm smokey tones using my MAC Warm Neutral palette, whilst keeping the rest of her makeup really natural and simple.
