Being a Hairdresser one of my favourite things about being a hairdresser is being involved in ladies most special days of their lives! This blog is about not only a client of mine from my salon in the UK but a gorgeous lady who has become a good friend of mine too. Now I have been doing Nikkis hair for many years now and have had many a giggle and dramas over the years listening to each others life stories. Now what do you know we both got engaged the same time Christmas 2012, I sent Nikki a very excited message expressing my News on Christmas Day and what do you know I got a picture message back of her stunning ring she had only got engaged on Christmas Eve!
Then both our journeys began! Nikki planned her wedding for June 2014 and mine September 2014 , so their we both where on the wedding journey exchanging ideas, pictures ( thank god for viber) and getting very excited with a fellow bride! As Nikki’s wedding was fast approaching we began the hair trails, we had two and then decided on something different on the day ( as us ladies do)… Which I quite enjoyed to be honest as Nikki has luxurious long beautiful hair so is fantastic for many styles.. When Nikki and Darren’s wedding day approached I was soooo excited for her with butterfly’s in my stomach. Nikki had decided on her venue The Mere which is a luxury hotel in Knutsford, Cheshire. The grounds of this hotel are just stunning and on the day the sun was gleaming . The suite Nikki had for the morning was amazing with lots of room for me and the talented make up artist Lisa to set up and began our working morning making the bridal party look beautiful which wasn’t hard! Nikki was just gleaming with happiness from the second we arrived! As the morning went on with breakfast being served and champagne getting popped, Nikki was just becoming more and more like a real life princess before my eyes! I had seen Nikki’s dress on photos but when I saw it hanging there it took my breath away! On the morning of the wedding we had pre discussed all the bridal partie’s hair again and of course the main ladies herself which we decided on something different from the trial not so different. The bridesmaids went for a waterfall curl pony which flattered their beautiful dresses. As I was finishing Nikki hair and her make up was complete the time came for Nikki to get dressed as we all waited outside.
Now this I believe it my special time with all brides and I am always honoured to see brides in their dresses first as to fit their veil!!!! Now walking in the room Nikki really did take my breath away she looked Stunning! Even nearly reducing me to tears! I fitted her veil and told her how amazing she looked and left her to her special time with her dad!
I would like to wish you and your husband all the happiness in the world!! Cheers to the new Mr & Mrs Parkinson!
Whats even more lovely I asked Nikki about a three weeks ago how does it feel not planning your wedding anymore are you missing it . To which she replied ‘my day was the most amazing day I could have ever have wished for and wouldn’t have done it any other way’ .
From one bride to be to a wife thank you for letting me be part of your day! X
