"What I wore"

As a bride-to-be, I’ve been prodding everyone for beauty advice: what works and more importantly, what doesn’t (like an updo that makes you taller than your groom - awkward), how to ensure your make-up will last from the “I Do” to the dancefloor and whether I should go Rapunzel for the reception (ie. let down my hair.)

The Liver Building provided two beautiful christmas trees and we booked a brass band to play in the foyer as our guests arrived. Because of the time of year, I went for snow white red lips. One of my very good friends is a make-up artist so having her with me on the day made getting ready easy and stress-free.

I wanted to channel my inner Brigitte Bardot with my hair, so I went for a half-up/half down backcombed style, adding in a few extensions for extra volume. I loved my whole bridal look. Once I’d stepped into my gown – which was the first dress I saw in the first shop I went in – I felt amazing. So excited and completely happy. I’ll never forget the first time I saw Chris’ face at the altar.’
