Yvonne & Dan’s Real Wedding

Yvonne and Dan met through mutual friends on a night out. His funky dance moves left a lasting impression on Yvonne, and nine years after they first met they tied the knot at Quy Mill Hotel & Spa in front of their nearest and dearest. Their wedding had a pink colour scheme and included elements from Yvonne’s Chinese heritage.


Bridal Beauty

Yvonne’s wedding makeup was done by Beauty by Roxanne and her hair was styled by Hair Perfection by Carrie.


She had a trial with each stylist. Carrie specialises in wedding hair and was brilliant when it came to inspiring Yvonne and giving her ideas. Roxanne kindly agreed to do Yvonne’s makeup trial on New Year’s Eve 2014 to coincide with an event so she could be suitably glammed up for it, whilst testing out her wedding makeup look.

Yvonne wanted a natural wedding look, so her makeup palette consisted of shades of brown. She wanted to emphasise her eyes so she opted for false lashes which really helped to define them.

When it came to her wedding hair, Carrie came up with a range of ideas to suit her face shape, including some ‘wildcard’ suggestions Yvonne never would have thought of. She made a Pinterest board of ideas for the bride to look over, and Yvonne was able to add her own suggestions to the page too.

In the end, Yvonne wore her hair in a stylish chignon, which had two French plaits leading into it. The hair around her crown was backcombed for volume so her tiara could sit on it, and her fringe was swept to the side, with some loose, curled tendrils framing her face.
