Vancouver Bride, married at the Laurel Point in Victoria BC

September 7, 2011

The Sharon Rai Hair & Makeup Artistry Team had the pleasure of working with Sabrina and her bridal party.  We arrived on-location to stylize the party in their suite at the Inn at Laurel Point, where the wedding was taking place!

Sabrina was a very easy going bride, and her family & friends were great to work with.  We created a half up, half down hairstyle, with her beautiful thick dark hair.  With makeup we went with a bold lip, defined liner, and kept everything natural & flawless.

It was great running into Sabrina’s Wedding Photographer, Karen McNeil & Courtney Clarke, always a pleasure working with local talent!

Congratulations Sabrina & Scott, wishing you all the best!

Parksville BC Wedding Hairstylist & Makeup Artist – Sharon Rai

May 30, 2011

Read Jennifer’s experience as a  SR Bride working with Sharon Rai Hair & Makeup Artistry:

“I just wanted to thank you for the fantastic job you did doing my make-up and hair. I feel really lucky to have found such an experienced, professional, and creative make-up artist, as well as being a really nice and warm person. I felt totally confident for my wedding day. Sharon made lots of great suggestions on how I might like to have my hair and make-up, whilst also listening to what I would like. I would highly recommend the “Wedding Day Preview” that Sharon offers. The preview was informal and relaxed. It made my wedding day much less stressful, and it was fun to put on my dress and accessories to see how everything looked together in advance of the big day.

Sharon was always really quick to respond to my emails and I cannot wait to have another occasion that will mean I can ask Sharon to do my make-up and hair again! I would recommend Sharon to anyone who wants to have their make-up and hair professionally done for any special occasion. Quite simply she is fantastic!

Thank you Sharon so much for all your help and advice leading up to and on my wedding day!”

For the past two months, Sharon Rai Hair & Makeup Artistry had the pleasure to work with Jennifer Matterson, a Westshore ReMax Relator.  We first met for her wedding day preview, where we spent the day creating her look.  The wedding day preview includes full trials of hair, makeup, jewelry, dress, and photography, so the bride knows exactly what she will look like, and a great way to get exactly what she wants.  Here is a picture from Jennifer’s wedding day preview:

On the wedding day, Jennifer arrived to the studio, where we re-created her look making a few changes.  Her look was complete once she put on her dress & jewelry from Blush Bridal Boutique.  She was then ready for her wedding ceremony which took place in Parksville, BC.  View more pictures of Jennifer, and have a sneak peak at her wedding images shot by Karen McNeil Photography.
