Start the preparations to looking fabulous for your big day!
This full day service includes;
- A Personal Colour Analysis
- A Style & Image Coaching Session
- Dress Design
- Trial Bridal Make-Up
- Accessory co-ordination advice, bridesmaids gown colours, bouquets etc.
From some of our earliest memories right through to the day itself, we day-dream about how the day will be and from those early years, most importantly, what the perfect dress will be. Of course, a groom is necessary too!
During your Colour Analysis we determine whether white, ivory, champagne or indeed another colour will best suit you.
The Style consultation focuses on your most flattering neckline, shape and fabric for your dress as well as hairstyles and personal accessories.
Together we will design the dress!
A Trial Bridal Make-Up application using Susan Rainey products will give you a sneek peek into how gorgeous you will look on the day.
“Our make up lasted right through the day and through a lot of dancing into the night!I couldn’t recommend Paula highly enough to any bride-to-be! Thanks again – Nicola”
“Just a note to say thank you so much Paula for the beautiful make up job you did on my wedding day! It was just perfect! My mam and my three bridesmaids were so happy with theirs too. They all looked gorgeous and they wanted to pass on their sincere thanks to you also.
On my first consultation with Paula, she advised me on a three week beauty regime to get my skin looking as best as possible for the day. I couldn’t believe the difference it made in that short space of time and have not looked back since.
I had an idea of the look I thought I wanted for the day but Paula suggested alternative colours that would suit my colouring better. She did a make up trial and I was immediately converted to her vision. Her knowledge and experience are vast and I had no doubt straightaway that there would be nothing to worry about on the day. It was nice having one less thing to worry about!
It was great having Paula there on the morning of the wedding, not just for her consummate professionalism and talent but also because she puts you at ease and is such a pleasure to be around. She arrived early and took time to work on each of us with such detail and precision. Our make up lasted right through the day and through a lot of dancing into the night! I couldn’t recommend Paula highly enough to any bride-to-be! Thanks again – Nicola”
Wedding of Eavan Foley
The Bride: Eavan Foley
Time of Year: Autumn
Eavans Colouring: Winter – Cool/Deep
Eavans Bodyshape: A Gentle Hourglass
Eavan wore brilliant white on her wedding day – as we determined from her Colour Analysis that she has Winter colouring. The white worked beautifully on her. A cream or ivory dress would have faultered her crisp complexion.
Similarly for her make-up I kept it cool toned to match her high contrast colouring using Susan Rainey Cosmetics.
“Paula was a Godsend. She meticulously went through everything from the Colour & Style consultations to the making of my dress and the bridesmaids dresses. I felt fabulous on the day! She even gave advice on the bouquets. This was money well spent.” – Eavan
Wedding of Caroline Fraher
The Bride: Caroline Fraher
Time of Year: Summer
Carolines Colouring: Spring – Bright/Clear
Carolines Body Shape: Straight-Soft
In contrast to the previous pictures of Eavan, Caroline is warm toned. As we determined from her Personal Colour Analysis she has Spring Colouring and so we chose an ivory gown to compliment the warmth in her complexion. A white dress on Caroline would have washed her out.
I kept Carolines makeup warm using the Spring and some Autumn colours from the Susan Rainey Cosmetics range.
Caroline has broad shoulders so this halterneck suited her perfectly.
The lace throughout the dress also complimented her figure.
“If I hadn’t had my colours and styling done with Paula, I probably would have gone for a white dress, straightened my naturally curly hair, worn the wrong colour make-up and regreted it. Since having my colours done the difference is huge and in my day to day life also. Why oh why did I wear so much black for so long?! I’m a changed person because of what she has done and my wedding day was no exception. I felt like me, just the beautiful version of me!” – Caroline
