Ieva Genovesi, where do I start. From the moment I arrived for my trial I could tell I had made a good choice. This was my first time having my make up done professionally and I was unsure exactly what I wanted. Just a few Pinterest pictures to go by Ieva managed to make me look like a million dollars. I was blown away! I ended up toning it down for my wedding day to feel more like “me”. Excellent communication with Ieva in the lead up meant this was completely care free on the actual day, even whilst breastfeeding my crying daughter! I of course woke on the morning of the wedding with a massive spot!! Which I never get :-/ Ieva managed to cover it! You honestly wouldn’t have a clue it was there (this amazed me! I keep rambling on to my friends about it!) I needed no top up of make up from start to finish, 12 hours!! Literally popped on my lip gloss whenever I peeked in the mirror.. all that was needed!
Onto hair... all I knew was that I wanted to invole a plait.. as I love to wear Dutch braid bunches when working out and thought it would be cute to include some sort of nod to it ;) plus I loved the idea of being a bit boho to go loosely with our woodland and fairytale theme.
We practiced three different styles. I loved them all but one definitely stood out as the front runner for me. Half up half down with a flawless plait joining at the back. On the day Ieva managed to recreate this beautiful look and using a mixture of the artificial flowers I had bought and the real ones the florist had pinned us, created a stunning back, which included my veil (and my something blue).
I can’t thank Ieva enough and I’m honestly hoping to get invited to lots of events just to use her again! Thank you Ieva xx
