Victoria BC Bridal Hair & Makeup Artist – Sharon Rai

September 29, 2010

Once the wedding is over, and a few weeks go by, it can get a little depressing.  I experienced that first hand, knowing that its all over, and there is no more planning, unless… you have two weddings! Stacey, is that lucky bride, she traveled from Fort McMurray, AB over the weekend, to have an intimate wedding ceremony with close family in Sidney, BC.  Next month, her friends & family will be traveling to Mexico, to celebrate the official wedding. Stacey, from the start had an idea of what she wanted, we created her look during her wedding day preview a few months ago, we added extensions to her hair, to give it the fulness.  On the wedding day, Sharon Rai Hair & Makeup Artistry arrived on-location at the Magnolia Hotel & Spa, downtown Victoria.  View pictures of beautiful Stacey before she put on her wedding dress.

‘Once in a while, Right in the middle of an ordinary life, Love gives us a fairy tale.’ that was from a wedding card that I read in Tiffany Schiller’s suite while getting her ready at the Sooke Harbour House. Tiffany was the beautiful SR bride today, she traveled from Vancouver, to get married in the breath-taking gardens in Sooke, BC.  Her style was romantic, vintage, and glamorous.  We incorporated her dress, flowers, and style to create her stunning look.  View more pictures of Tiffany.  As we were finishing, Jennifer Armstrong, the wedding photographer came, it was great to run into her.  The last time we worked together was four years ago, during a wedding on Hornby Island, BC. How time flew.

Canada’s luxury wedding magazine, WedLuxe, has done a wedding story on a SR Bride, Shauna Ravai.  Her wedding took place in Mount Washington, I had the privilege of spending a beautiful summer day with her and her party in their Chalet.  I always remember every bride, I work with.  With Shauna’s wedding, it was her shoes, I was in-love with her Pink Prada’s, and the story behind the color!  Here is what Shauna had to say:

Your work was so fantastic and I loved how amazing my makeup was on me and the girls…you are incredibly talented at what you do.  There are no words to thank you for how gorgeous we all looked that day.  You were so personable, kind, sweet, professional and above all…really good at what you do.  Keep up your fabulous work…you are phenomenal!!!!

Sharon Rai Hair & Makeup Artistry traveled to Salt Spring Island, this weekend, to stylize CTV reporter Maria Weisgarber, and her bridal party at the Harbour House Hotel.  The day turned out perfect sunny, warm, summer weather!  View more pictures of Maria.

“My bridesmaids and I were so pleased with the looks Sharon created for us!  She travelled to Salt Spring for the wedding, came right to our hotel, and spent hours with us helping us get ready. Everyone ended up looking radiant. She even found a way to incorporate a hair flower for me — a beautiful pink bloom from my bouquet. It was something I had been hoping for — but I hadn’t had time to pick one out before the wedding. Sharon was lovely & very accommodating, and our pictures look great!” – Maria

Australian Sharon Rai Brides! – Victoria BC

Carrie & Monica, twin sisters, flew in from Australia to get married at The Lodge at Weirs Beach here in Victoria, BC.  Not only do they share the same birthday, now they share the same wedding date!  It was great, both sisters, bridesmaids, and brides, on the same day.  I met the ladies a few days before their wedding at the studio, we had a wedding day preview for each of them, this is when the bride and I spend time on their look, customizing their vision, and ensuring everything is perfect on the wedding day.

The Sharon Rai Hair & Makeup Artistry team arrived in the morning with, Monica and her bridal party first, and Carrie and her party in the afternoon.  Monica, the first bride, has shoulder length hair, we added extensions to giver her the fullness and length.  With her makeup, we went heavier on the eyes, and kept everything else flawless.  Carrie was second to walk down the aisle, we kept her makeup soft, defining her eye.

It was a pleasure working with such gorgeous ladies, wishing you all the best! Paul Tedrick & Jesse Holland, did a great job on the photography.
