Bridal make up on a hot summers day….

Posted by Claire, at May 28, 2012

Lucky Nadine to have unknowingly planned her wedding on one of the most beautiful days of the year! Friday the 25th May was simply glorious and saw Amy Darrington and I heading over to Didsbury Gate for bridal hair and make up.

Amy arrived before me and was able to take full advantage of Nadine’s spacious and airy apartment made even better by the sun beaming in through the large windows of the old hospital/workhouse. I arrived make up case in hand (it seems to be getting remarkably heavier as the weeks go on……) and was greeted by Nadine who already looked stunning even in her dressing gown!

Firstly I worked on the bridesmaids using a wide range of products from Bobbi Brown, Make Up International, Lauder and Lancome. Both of the bridesmaids opted for more of a vintage make up look with the application of false eyelashes, finishing with lashings of black MAC gel liner.

Amy Darrington worked the hair beautifully taming curls and blow drying to perfection, the three little bridesmaids looked stunning. To see Amy’s website go to for prices and examples of her work. Amy is also available for individual mobile hairdressing appointments in South Manchester and Cheshire.

The day finished really well and all the ladies looked stunning in their dresses. A big thank you to Nadine for allowing me to wander around taking pictures, and thank you again for booking us and allowing us to share a part of your special day.
