Keirestell Bed & Breakfast Bridal Makeup Application & Bridal Hairstylist

May 31, 2011

Read UK Bride, Anna’s experience as a SR Bride and working with Sharon Rai Hair & Makeup Artistry on-location at the Keirestell Bed & Breakfast in the Cowichan Valley.

“When my fiancé and I decided to get married on Vancouver Island I knew I may have a challenge finding a hair and makeup artist on the internet. I needed to find someone I could communicate with through email and telephone only, and someone I could trust to help me decide on my bridal look 2 days before our wedding……I found this in Sharon!!

I found Sharon through a search engine, her website looked very professional and models looked glamorous and stunning so I got in contact and Sharon was very sweet and helpful on the phone and decided to make a booking.

I had my wedding day preview at Sharon’s studio with my bride’s maid, my mum and mother in law, she provided sparkling wine and canapés and we had a great afternoon and she helped me to decide on my look, and the added touch of professional photos enables you to really see what you will look like.

Sharon being able to come to our wedding location was great help and made the day less stressful.

I was so happy with all of our makeovers; you made me feel truly amazing on the most special day of my life.  Thank you”


“Below is our favourite photo. We feel it captured the day perfectly….raining but beautiful with the fog up in the mountains and lush green trees, and also shows the beauty of Canada even in the rain…..what we love so much.”



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.
