Over the years, I have had the pleasure of being part of may different cultures weddings and celebrations.
Its always a wonderful thing to learn about the traditions that go on with these weddings. Over this weekend, I was privileged to get an Indian Bride ready with her Hair and Makeup.
I had to attend to my bride, 3 times over the weekend, to help change her look over the weekend of celebrations.
On Saturday, it was what I would describe as her 'engagement party', she had a beautiful peach dress to wear, that was adorn with gold embellishments and lots of jewelry. We had her hair up, kept her makeup on the lighter side and she wanted peachy lip color to match her dress.
On the Sunday morning, I went back to get her ready for your wedding ceremony at 1.30. Traditionally girls aren't allowed to wear red until they are married, so her out fit was all red. Which is one of my favorite colors. We again kept her makeup on the lighter side, as she didn't want to wear too much makeup, but mum instructed me that she had to have red lipstick.
On the Sunday evening I went back one last time to help get my lovely bride ready for her after party. As we had, had 2 events with her hair up, I suggested letting her beautiful hair down and curling it and wearing half up half down.
She had another outfit to wear, so we used a great copper eyeshadow and kept her lips more a dusty pink color.
It was a very busy, but lovely weekend, spent with a wonderful lady and her family.
