I travelled over to the Yorkshire Dales for Helen’s wedding at Burnsall Village Hall. I helped her and her bridesmaids get ready at the cottage they were staying at in nearby Grassington. It was a busy morning doing hair and makeup for all four of them but everyone was ready with time to spare.
The bridesmaids all had matching chignons with braids, which complemented their long 1920s style dresses. Helen has loads of gorgeous red hair to work with. I curled it and swept it up into a tousled chignon before pinning Helen’s hair vine in place. For her makeup, we went for a vintage look that wasn’t over the top so her eyeliner flicks were mini kitten flicks and her berry lipstick was dabbed on like a stain for a softer effect.
