Polynesian Wedding at Hatley Castle | Victoria BC | Wedding Makeup and Hair

December 11, 2012

Sharon Rai Hair & Makeup Artistry had the pleasure of working with SR Bride Janelle – she had an amazing day at the end of September in Victoria BC – it felt like summer – blue sky’s, sun and warm weather!  Janelle & Itu choose to have their wedding ceremony at the Hatley Castle, because of the location – the views of the mountains and water.  The reception followed in the evening at the Da Vinci Centre in Victoria BC.

A month before the wedding, Janelle and two girlfriends arrived to the Studio for her Wedding Day Preview – she had her dress, shoes, selection of hair accessories and jewelry.  We had a chance to play dress up, trying different styles of makeup and hair, playing around with all her accessories and jewelry, while the girls enjoyed appetizers and sipped on wine. We kept working on different looks until we found the look we all loved!  Below is an image of the final look from the Wedding Day Preview:

On the Wedding Day, all eight ladies arrived to the morning to the SR Studio – where the girls got comfortable, and pampered with hair and makeup by the SR Team.  We also had Lily Kennedy from Lily Kennedy Custom Gowns join us at the SR Studio to help lace the wedding gown, and with Shane Deringer Photography capturing all the moments – including having a little touchup himself.


After finishing up at the Studio, we all headed to the Hatley Castle in Victoria BC for the ceremony.  Sharon Rai Hair & Makeup Artistry was on-location at the Hatley Castle before Janelle walked down the aisle, after the ceremony, and during her photo-sessions!  We provided a full day of pampering – to make sure every detail was perfect for Janelle & her bridal party.  We were with Janelle for everything – no hair was out of place, veil was perfect in all the shots, lips perfectly glossed, and skin shine free for her & her groom.  We also worked with her photographer, Shane to make sure the couple looked perfect in the shots (fluffing the dress, positioning the veil, hair piece, and bouquet).
