Choos­ing your Hair and Makeup Theme

My Wedding - - HAIR | MAKEUP - By Jennifer Cochrane

One of the first things to or­gan­ise af­ter book­ing your venue is the theme of your wed­ding. Nat­u­rally, a wed­ding’s theme in­volves ro­mance, and you’ll want your pho­tog­ra­pher to cap­ture the spe­cial mo­ments. How­ever, most wed­dings also take on an­other theme, such as a beach or vin­tage, and your dress, hair and makeup play a big part in that theme. Hair and makeup should be cre­ated by your artist to not only en­hance your nat­u­ral beauty and suit your dress, but also to fit in with the theme. Here are just a few fun themes we have un­der­taken re­cently. You’ll no­tice there’s no Vin­tage theme …stay tuned for the up­com­ing is­sue where you’ll find a huge fea­ture ded­i­cated purely to the Vin­tage look! So Brides, plan well in ad­vance for a pol­ished look that matches your theme. Then re­lax … and en­joy ev­ery minute of your beau­ti­ful day.


An ex­am­ple of hair struc­tured es­pe­cially for the beach, with curls for the soft nat­u­ral look. The makeup has a hint of shim­mer with nat­u­ral earthy colours on the eyes, and shim­mery glossy lips. Im­age: Si­mon Watts

This hairstyle has been struc­tured with a trop­i­cal theme in mind, with its ac­cented fin­ish­ing touch of bright coloured flow­ers. The makeup has a shim­mery fin­ish, with warm browns on the eyes to tone in with the ivory dress. Im­age: Faith Pho­tog­ra­phy
