UK Bride Married in the Cowichan Valley | Cowichan Valley Hair & Makeup Artist

December 17, 2010

Anna Schluefter, was Sharon Rai Hair & Makeup Artistry’s beautiful UK Bride this summer.  She, her fiancé along with family and friends traveled to Vancouver Island to have a summer holiday, along with their wedding ceremony at the Keirestell Bed & Breakfast in the Cowichan Valley.  I met Anna and her family during her wedding day preview a few days before the wedding, as she just arrived from the UK.  She has great taste in makeup, and knows what looks good, we kept her makeup softer than usual, yet playing up her features.  With her hair, she had a shorter cut, we added in a hairpiece to give it a full look.  Below is a picture from Anna’s wedding day preview, this is when our SR bride experiences the treatment of royalty, beginning with a preview session including hair, makeup, jewelry, accessories and the brides dress. All while relaxing in a luxurious urban-styled studio, enjoying gourmet refreshments and appetizers, with friends and family. The preview is topped off with a private photo session in the SR studio.

On the wedding day, Sharon Rai Hair & Makeup Artistry arrived on location to stylize Anna, along with her party.  The photographer, Devan Card, did a great job on the photography below is a picture of Anna on her wedding day.
