For Helen’s wedding in Manchester city centre, she wanted a hair and makeup look that would suit both the grand surroundings of Manchester Town Hall, where her ceremony would be held and the modern Lowry Centre in Salford, where the reception would be. Helen is a very stylish young lady and wanted to look fashionable and sophisticated for her city centre venue. I spent the morning getting her and her bridesmaids ready at her mum’s house in Prestwich.
We decided that a strong, berry coloured lip would complement Helen’s striking colouring and also go with her lovely heather-coloured flowers. This was, after all, a Winter wedding. For her hair I created an ornate up-do, swept off her face to enhance her bone structure. I was inspired by the models at Chanel’s SS12 catwalk show who had their hair adorned with pearls so prior to the big day I made some pearl hair pins to place amongst Helen’s copper curls.
