After creating makeup and hair for Annamiek’s friend Andrea the year before, this was Annamiek’s turn and big day!

It was daybreak as I walked into Annamiek’s preparation bedroom on New Year’s Eve day a poor bride was tired, didn’t sleep that well. It can happen on such an important day! The adrenaline hits in though once the fun starts and no one thinks about being tired!

Each bridesmaid came and went for their hairstyling as our bride rested and watched the going’s on…how nice!) It was so lovely as most of us had met earlier when I did her friend’s wedding makeup and hair. Everyone could sit around and chat and enjoy the day.

After everyone watching the bride’s makeup creation it came to the moment of putting on the gown. Nicely emotional as her dress was designed for her mother by a friend in LA… but the look was so unusual and feminine…

Annamiek looked radiantly glowing an beautiful, as her photographs show.

A few words from the bride after the big day…..

“A heartfelt thank you for my making my wedding day so very special. I loved the natural look of my make up and elegant hair style, went just perfect with ‘vintage’ theme. My bridesmaids hair and make up looked stunning and they were glowing all day.

After having you do my make up and hair for Andrea’s wedding last year, I knew you were perfect for my wedding. Thank you for your professionalism, creativity and making me feel fabulous.”
