Elaine & Stephen’s Real Wedding

Elaine and Stephen met at a mutual friend’s birthday party, and hit it off. A Christmas Eve proposal led to a 16 year engagement, before Elaine’s grandmother’s ill health spurred them on to planning a wedding in just two weeks so she could share their special day.


Hair and Makeup

Elaine hired professionals to do her hair and makeup for her wedding. She didn’t have any beauty trials as there just wasn’t time! She opted for a classic half up, half down style, back-combed for extra volume, with loose curls adding texture.


A tiara from Debenhams added some sparkle, and a traditional veil, borrowed from a friend who got married around 16 years previously, was fixed in place.
