Contrary to popular belief, updos can actually be WAY quicker than down styles.
A lot of people think down styles are ‘just curls’, but actually there’s way more to them than people think ESPECIALLY if you have people in your bridal party with a lot of hair, or hair that doesn’t hold a curl.
The beauty of an updo, is often that you don’t have to curl or prep every strand of hair on the head, making them a quick, realistic option if you have lots of bridesmaids who need their hair done on your wedding morning. With down styles, or half ups every single hair on the head needs curling and perfecting!
Make sure to have a chat with your hairstylist, so you can find out what’s realistic in the time available on the wedding morning 🥰.

Here are my tips to keep your wedding makeup looking natural…
🌸 Natural makeup is more about enhancing what you already have, so have a think about what your favourite feature is and base your look around that!
🌸 If you want that barely there skin look, you’re going to need to get your skin in as good shape as you possibly can - so a consistent skincare routine in the run up to the wedding is going to be really important.
🌸 Find a makeup artist that specialises in natural looks - most makeup artists have a look they specialise in, so there’s no point booking a full glam artist if you want a natural look and vice versa.
🌸 A lot of natural looks feature mostly neutral colours, but if you want a pop of something brighter go for it! You can use that brighter element as your statement and keep the rest of the look more pared back.
🌸 If you still want some coverage on your skin don’t panic, applied in the right way it can still look natural. My lovely bride Bex in this reel is actually wearing a fairly full coverage base - you wouldn’t think it though would you?
Still looking for a natural makeup artist for your wedding day? I’m currently booking 2024 and 2025 so drop me a DM for some more info!

Beautiful bride Nina 💗
Nina married back in July at @eastmerseahall, and wanted to look like a natural, polished version of herself for her wedding day.
Nina already had a great skincare routine in place, which we made a couple of tweaks to, meaning her skin was in tip top shape for her wedding day!
We opted to focus this makeup look on her eyes, making them pop with a soft shimmer and individual lashes. Paired with a natural finish to her skin, I think she looks amazing!

If you’re a bride with naturally curly hair keep reading….
🌸 The first thing you are going to want to think about if you want to use your natural curls or not… all your wedding hair decisions will be based off of this!
🌸 If you’re hoping to wear your natural curls, make sure your hair stylist is confident working with your hair type. Unfortunately curly, afro and textured hair isn’t covered in a lot of hair training, so not all stylists will know how to work with your hair.
🌸 If you’re wanting to wear your natural curls, have a think about what day they usually look best - wash day, day 2, day 3 etc. This will help you decide when you need to wash your hair before the wedding.
🌸 If you’d rather wear your hair smooth for your wedding day, your curls are going to need to be blow dried straight. Sometimes this can be done on the wedding morning, but often it’s more practical to book a blow dry or blow dry your own hair smooth the night before the wedding. It’s important the hair is blow dried, and not straightened with straighteners as this can make the hair very hard to work with.
🌸 Have a think about timings, often curly hair needs styling from wet (diffusing for my curly girls, blow drying for my smooth girlies) which obviously takes longer, and is sometimes charged as an extra service. Make sure to talk to your stylist so you can find out what is realistic to do on the wedding morning, and if any steps can be taken the day before. I styled the hair in this reel from wet on the wedding morning, and it took me around 2.5 hours.
🌸 If you’re a natural curl kinda gal and are limited on time on the wedding morning, a heat tool such as a chopstick wand might need to be used instead of diffusing to define your curls.

Come to a destination wedding with me 🇮🇹🍕
A couple of weeks back I had the privilege of assisting @liliamullingerbridal on a beautiful wedding in Naples, helping with hair for the bridal party.
It was a busy, whirlwind trip and I was exhausted by the end of it, but I had a wonderful time and I’m still pinching myself that I get to do this for a job 🏻
A big thanks to @liliamullingerbridal and @creobridal for having me, and it was so good to work alongside @siancurtinmakeup again 🥰

I recently had some headshots done by the uber talented @donnadukellande, so what better time than now to reintroduce myself!
If you don’t know me already then hey, I’m Vicky! Bridal hair and makeup artist, with a love for all things natural and romantic with a bit of texture.
I’ve been doing this job for almost 5 years now, and in that time I’ve got hundreds of brides and their families ready for their big days. I honestly feel so privileged that so many people trust me with such an important part of their wedding day 🏻.
I’m also a bit of an animal lover, so my kit is 100% cruelty free - you can rest assured nothing I use on you will have been tested on animals.
In my free time I can usually be found going for walks in nature, curled up with a good book or cuddling one of my cats!

Some things to bare in mind when choosing your bridal prep space…
You can just get ready at your venue right?! Unfortunately, that’s not always the case and even when that option is available it’s not always practical.
Here are things to take into account…
🌸 The numbers in your bridal party, and the space available - if you have 10 bridesmaids and your venues prep area is small, things are gonna get hot, crowded and stressful pretty quickly.
🌸 Natural light - if possible, it’s always best to find somewhere with lots of natural light to get ready. It will make your hair and makeup artists lives easier, as well as your photographer and videographers. Our jobs are much easier when we can see properly!
🌸 Access times and ceremony times - if you can’t get into your venues prep area until 11am, and your ceremony is at 1pm it’s really not realistic to have hair and makeup done within that time.
So what to do if the prep area at your venue won’t work? Lots of my brides get ready at home, in hotels and in airbnbs then travel onto the venue for their ceremony.
Pictured is my beautiful bride Steph taken by @tomhphoto at @leezpriory, who have a gorgeous bridal prep area!

Bridal hair tips if you have short hair ⬇️⬇️
🌸 Don’t let people talk you into growing your hair for your wedding, unless that’s REALLY what you want.
🌸 Don’t rule out an upstyle, you’d be surprised at what kind of updos can be achieved on short hair.
🌸 Be open to your stylists suggestions - if you’re after a specific look, we might recommend you invest in extensions.
🌸 Don’t overthink it, if you want to keep your hair short, sweet and simple for your big day, then go for it!!
