Head piece: UK-based Flo & Percy

"Vintage inspired weddings are a major hit especially after the Great Gatsby movie. Keeping a soft eye with a bold lip in a plum or red is definitely a winner" Khesanh of the Beauty Case

“Subtle highlighting and contouring the face is back in. The last thing you want is for your face to look ‘flat’ in photos.” - Abigael Johnston

Brides are wanting more defined eyes with black flick and full set of lashes with bright red lips. skin is flawless and contoured blush on the cheeks. hair is styled down with soft curls or up styled with a finger wave fringe. finish with a pearl/diamanté hair clip or floral fascinator."

Opt out of flat hair colour, says Matt Clements of The Assembly Hair on the Sunshine Coast. "A big trend currently is contrasting warm and cool tones used side by side," he says, adding that "accents of muted colours such as soft powder pinks and lilacs with grey/whites is still very much an on-trend look.” Want to make it work for bridal? “Although the pastel tones may not be appropriate for a wedding day, contrasting shades to create beautiful finishes can still be done through use of chocolates and darker browns, or differing shades of blonde."'

"Braiding and beautiful high top knot buns which translate from runway red carpet to bridal masterpiece are right on trend," says Reichen of Hare's Hair 

An elegant high bun will elongate your neck and showcase cheekbones and shoulders. Add interest and texture with bridal braiding.
