Bear Mountain Resort Wedding – Victoria BC Bridal Makeup Artist

May 17, 2012

We received a card from our gorgeous SR Bride Carlie!  On her wedding day, Carlie arrived in-studio for services before her wedding which took place at the Westin in Bear Mountain Resort – Victoria BC.  She incorporated a vintage-winter theme for her elegant wedding – which looked perfect!  Curtis Pelletier did an amazing job with the wedding photographs view the images.

“Sharon, I just wanted to send you a big THANK YOU for doing my wedding makeup you did the most fantastic job.  Words cannot express how grateful I am, you not only made me look & feel beautiful, but you calmed me down and made my morning stress-free.  I cannot wait for the next occasion so we can try other awesome looks!  Thank you, Thank you,  Carlie Smith”

Edmonton SR Bride talks about her Bridal Experience

“My advice to anyone considering hiring Sharon & her team – DO IT!  You will be like me and consider it the best decisions you ever made…” 

Other than AMAZING, I was unsure how I wanted to look on my wedding day so I knew I needed someone special to help in that department, after all, as we age all a bride has is her memories and photos and photos last forever!  Being from out of province I wanted to make sure I had someone very skilled and from everything I heard in the industry, Sharon Rai was the answer.

I booked four sessions with her:  wedding day preview, makeup lesson, wedding day session and a boudoir – simply radiant session.  For the wedding consultation I did my homework (had my top 5 photo picks of makeup and hairstyles) and from that she worked with me to create the vision I had in my mind.  The result was breathtaking!  For the boudoir, she just did what she does best – create the sizzle I needed and ensure it would look fantastic on camera.  The best part of both sessions was that I still looked like me but the best version of me in different flavours.  And on the wedding day……… I spent the morning laughing with my girlfriends and being pampered while overlooking the ocean because Sharon came to me!

From her I got the WOW factor.  She passed along knowledge of products and services and application techniques so I could replicate it again at my reception (scheduled for a few months later) and for whenever I wanted.  She was very gracious with all my detailed questions and there were lots, after all, when you are in the presence of an expert you want to learn as much as you can!  I can now look drop dead gorgeous in different ways and at any time.  My husband likes my new skills too.

As a result of all of this, my wedding day was only filled with the joy of my experience!  I didn’t have to wonder how I would look on camera or have to rush around.  Sharon came to me – it was relaxed, stress free and I was able to focus on relationships – not the details of the day.  The most rewarding aspect was knowing I looked my best when I celebrated joining my life with my best friend (let’s just say he was very appreciative of the fact – lol).

My advice to anyone considering hiring Sharon and her team – DO IT.  She is worth every penny and the knowledge you will gain is immeasurable.  Even if you are on a very tight budget, consider her teaching session or just booking her for the wedding day.  You will be like me and consider it one of the best decision you ever made.

SR Bride Wedding Day Hairstyle – Victoria BC Bridal Hairstylist

January 4, 2012


Just want to remind you of how appreciative I am to have had you a part of my wedding experience.  I had only had my hair done for an occasion once, 9 years ago, and it was awful.  Im truly not exaggerating, it was my sister’s wedding and I couldn’t stop thinking, at the time, how much I hated how I looked.  I didn’t say anything because it was her day and I didn’t want to take that away from her by complaining, so I sucked it up and looked ridiculous, but what a different experience I had this time.  I just felt so amazing the day of my engagement shoot, and my wedding day and its all because of YOU!
Thanks again, Im so grateful!

SR Bride, tells all, “I got so many compliments on my look, my makeup was flawless.”

Having Sharon do my hair and makeup for my August wedding was an amazing experience for me as she was able to put together my exact vision of how I wanted to look for my wedding.  As a result, for booking her I was stress free the entire time, it was such a relief not to 

have to run around on my wedding day all I had to do was go to the SR Studio and everything was looked after for me and I was able to relax have a cup of tea and talking with Sharon really calmed me down and put me at ease. From her services, I got so many compliments on my look, my makeup was flawless! Sharon did my hair and makeup for my ceremony then again the second day for my reception.  Sharon achieved the exact look I was going for, flawless, soft and sexy.  She is on time, prepared and has a calming presence about her which was 

just what I needed as I was a nervous bride! My advice for those thinking of booking Sharon and her team is, don’t hesitate, just book.  I would recommend Sharon without hesitation to any brides working with her was such an excellent experience and I felt truly special and beautiful on my wedding day all thanks to the flawless work of Sharon!  Thanks again for the beautiful job you did with my hair and makeup!!!!
