All in a day’s work – bridal hair and makeup

It was a swelteringly hot day, and the challenge was to keep the bride’s exquisite tresses of red hair curled, and her makeup set to perfection. So I curled small sections of hair with my tongs, and wrapped them around foam curlers to cool down. I kept the makeup light and fresh, filled in her brows, and defined her eyes with neutrals and an eggplant eye-shadow to compliment her green eyes. I am a huge fan of coral lips, as it looks bright and fresh, without washing you out as nudes sometimes can. After makeup application, I took the curlers out and smoothed the hair into flowing locks, which was half pinned up with a marcasite comb.

I love the lighting in these photos taken by Marcus Maschwitz, a very talented photographer, who specialises in band and live music photography, but made an exception for this wedding.
