Sikh Temple Wedding in Victoria BC || Union Club Wedding Reception

November 15, 2012

Sharon Rai Hair & Makeup Artistry had the pleasure of working with SR Bride Christina for her wedding day.  We arrived on-location to her family home in the Uplands of Victoria, BC early in the morning.

Christina wanted her look to be elegant and flawless, one that suited her style.  We went with a smokey eye to define her eyes, with flawless skin contouring her structure.  With hair, we added in hair pieces and extensions to give a full look, to finish we added in Orchids which completed the look.

The wedding took place at the Sikh Temple on Topaz in Victoria, BC, and the wedding reception was held at the Union Club of British Columbia.

Christina wanted to look her best, a result that was achieved by working together on her wedding – she wanted it to reflect in the photography.  View more images from her wedding, by Ronnie Lee Hill a Vancouver based photographer, she did an amazing job on the photographs.

The Wedding Belles Shaw TV Hairstylist & Makeup Artist – Sharon Rai

May 1, 2012

Sharon Rai Hair & Makeup Artistry had the pleasure of pampering The Wedding Belles – BC Celebrities from Shaw TV with hair & makeup services at our relaxed urban-styled studio in Victoria BC.

The girls were fabulous to work with, we had Colleen from Foxgloves Flowers  join us – with beautiful bouquets, Kelsey Goodwin capturing the moments on video & photography.

Sarah had a beautiful dress – big & fluffy very ‘Sex in the City’ so we wanted a look to compliment the dress as well as her fun personality!  The SR Team gave her lots of volume and curls keeping it fun, with makeup we went with a classic look with a twist on the lip – with a hot pink.  Gwen Stefani’s image below was used as inspiration for the look:


For beautiful Aubrey we went with a ‘Old Hollywood Glam’ inspired look.  We defined her eyes, and gave her skin a radiant look.  Kim Kardashian’s image below was used as inspiration.


Watch the video to see how the looks were created before for the Launch of The Wedding Ring Vancouver Island at the Bridal Exhibition.

“When you look great, nothing else matters on your wedding day!” – Sharon Rai Bride

January 4, 2012
Before hiring Sharon Rai Hair & Makeup Artistry to stylize my wedding look, I was worried about my makeup! I don’t really wear any and had no idea what to do. I had hired an amazing photographer and wanted too look great in my wedding photos. When you spend a lot of money on a photographer, you want to look your best.  Sharon knew what make up would look best in photos and also listened to my ideas about how I wanted to look on the day.
From her services, I received hair and make up for myself and my mother in law and hair for both of my bridesmaids. I also did a wedding day preview where we experimented with different make up & hair and took photos to see how I would look on the day.
Hiring Sharon to do my hair and make up was a great decision. My day was totally stress free! I got compliments on my make up from everyone, as did my mother in law. Her transformation was amazing! I felt absolutely beautiful and all I had to do was minor touch ups here and there. When you look great, nothing else matters on your wedding day!
My advice for those thinking of hiring Sharon and her team is do it! Sharon is professional and knowledgeable. When you become a Sharon Rai Bride, you are given access to her website where you can ask questions. Sharon responded promptly to any questions I had. Having someone who could do both hair and make up was important to me because I wanted someone who could see my overall vision and execute it. I am recommending Sharon to all my friends who are getting married!

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!

“I wanted to look perfect on my Wedding Day!” – SR Bride

November 10, 2011

“I wanted to look perfect on my wedding day and just like most brides I was very nervous. I first saw Sharon’s work on her website and knew right way I wanted to work with her.  We had the wedding in Victoria, BC and I’m from San Diego, CA so finding the right person from so far away was nerve wracking!   I spoke with her on the phone, and met with her when I came to Victoria a few days before the wedding, Sharon was truly amazing and made me feel completely at ease.  The morning of the wedding she came to my home at 4 am and spent the next 4 hours giving me the perfect look.   Her calm energy, organization, and knowhow immediately took the pressure off.  All I had to do was sit back and let her perform her magic!  She created two entirely different looks for me; one for my wedding and another for my reception.  Each one captured the energy, romance, excitement, and glamour I was looking for.  She captured my vision, and best of all, my makeup and hair lasted all day under the sun, lights, while dancing, and eating!

  To anyone considering using Sharon, my recommendation is to do it.  She listens to your opinions, understands your wants, and works as hard as she can to make the day as special as you expect it to be.  Most importantly she’s sweet, so easy to work with, and very accommodating.  I felt like a princess thru the entire day and without her help I know my look would never have felt complete!”

Thank you again Sharon!
