Looking at the pictures you would think this was a dream wedding, just for the magazines. No one really has this fantastic a time do they? Amazing news, you totally can!
Introducing Kirsty & Russell, Mr & Mrs Allison now. They both fell in love with each other & the destination of Lake Como & couldn’t imagine their special day anywhere else.
A chance chat with Kirsty & her mum at the To Have & To Hold wedding exhibiters stall introduced Blush & the magazine to this special couple and the journey to their extraordinary day!
Owning Blush over the years has been amazing. When writing this article & as a stylist/hairstylist, I was trying to find a focus on what I wanted to convey about what made the day & images so spectacular. I could talk about the finer details of Kirsty’s dress & how it was chosen. Or I could highlight the perfect combination of tailored sharp suits from Russell & his dapper boys, but the joy of being part of this wedding was watching how Kirsty & Russell worked together with suppliers to make their vision come alive. All of which was complemented by the most important people in their lives there to share it with them.
The important thing to remember when starting your planning is to focus on what is important to you both. For some it might be the colour of the bridesmaid’s dresses, for others could be the details in the bouquets.
For Kirsty & Russell, elegance & chic was their vision. On the morning of the wedding they wanted a relaxed & stress-free atmosphere to contrast the spectacular boat journey & views that would be greeting them later in the day. So, choosing the right hair stylist was of great importance as people & personalities can completely change the atmosphere of the preparations. Make up was very personal to Kirsty & she took careful lessons beforehand to learn how to enhance her naturally beautiful face. This, coupled with choosing to bring me along from Scotland, were the finer details that were vital in ensuring that the morning went exactly how she wanted it to. Photographer Marco was also a key player as they wanted to have someone who knew the landscapes & shared their vision & was able to capture it at every moment.
As you can see a picture tells a thousand stories, & we hope that you can experience some of the magic & love that was enjoyed on this special day!!
