October Update!

October has been a quieter month for me wedding season has finished giving me some time to catch up on other aspects of my business that don't involve makeup brushes!

I have been taking a lot of bridal bookings for next year recently and doing some trials ahead of some winter and early spring weddings.  Hair services are by request only as I prefer to specialise in makeup however I really did enjoy creating these two slightly different styles at one brides recent trial.

Polished smooth curls...

or messy curls with braids...

I adored making up this face with a bright red lip at a recent wedding!

Pretty glamorous makeup for a bridesmaid

Action station at South Farm, absolutely one of favourite wedding venues.

Couldn't resist snapping this barge on my way to a photoshoot in Huntingdon near Cambridge.

It has been wedding showcase season!  I am lucky enough to be recommended by both the The Luton Hoo Hotel and St Michaels Manor Hotel and participated in both of the recent wedding showcase evenings meeting lots of potential brides and I have already made some 2018 bookings : )

I am interested in Art in particular pop and contemporary. I visited The Frieze Art Fair in Regents park and was thrilled Tracey Emin signed a copy of her book for me. www.friezeartfair.com

I am currently receiving a high volume of bridal bookings for 2018/19 and do now have limited Saturday availability in particular the months of September and July if you would like me to reserve your wedding date please get in touch early to avoid being disappointed. www.nikimakeup.co.uk

A Cortijo Del Marqués Wedding

Back at the beginning of June I did wedding Hair and Makeup for Laura and her mum and Aunt in Granada, Spain at the idyllic Cortijo Del Marqués. The weather was perfect, not too hot and it really was an absolute pleasure to work at such a beautiful venue.

Below are some of my iPhone shots of the Bridal prep' and the stunning location.

View from the bridal suite!
