Beautiful Wedding at The Belle Epoque Knutsford

Posted by Claire, at June 6, 2012

When I awoke on Sunday morning and gazed out of the window on to a grey Palatine Road, my heart went out to my bride Becky who had been planning her special day for months, only to be cursed by the British weather.

However on arrival at The Belle Epoque in Knutsford we were greeted by a smiling bridal party who seemed somewhat unaware of the weather and who could blame them? What a stunning wedding venue this is. If you have been you will know precisely what I mean. The venue is old and creaky with an almost spooky feel of which I loved! I can see why Becky chose this location as she wanted an intimate and personal ceremony so this meant from our point of view, the hair and make up needed to reflect this.

Kirsty Rydout (Ruby) was the hairstylist for the day, with myself applying the bridal make up. Following an initial consultation Becky decided she would like her hair down in loose pin curls with beautiful, delicate flowers pinned in the back to finish the look.

Ruby also had the job of helping Becky in to her stunning bridal gown.

As hair and make up artists we always stay until the very end of the preparations. This very often means that we have the ‘extra curricular’ tasks to perform such as assisting with buttons, zips, flowers, shoes, jewellery (the list is quite frankly endless!) and not to mention re assuring nervous brides before they leave for the ceremony.

For the make up I used Lauder. The only product that was not Lauder was Becky’s own Clarins foundation and her Bobbi Brown lipstick, this meant she could top up after the ceremony. Lauder is an excellent brand and I find that due to the high quality pigment levels in the products the make up lasts throughout the day. The final look was young, fresh and natural and complemented the hair and dress theme perfectly.

We would like to say a huge thank you to Becky for having us and I hope you thoroughly enjoyed your day. We hope you have a gorgeous time on your honeymoon and hopefully we will see you again soon.
