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.

I’ll never forget the first time I saw Chris’ face at the altar.’
