Nanaimo BC Bridal Makeup Artist & Bridal Hairstylist – Sikh Wedding

June 8, 2011
Sharon Rai Hair & Makeup Artistry traveled on-location to Nanaimo BC to stylize Amrit Minhas for her Dream Wedding in Lady Smith BC at Transfer Beach.
Read Amrit’s experience as an SR Bride:
“It was August 29th, 2009 and I was awoken at 3:45 am by a knock on the door. I am an Indian girl having an Indian wedding so the expectation to get up before sunrise to be ready for the morning ceremony was a part of the deal. As I lay in bed unable to get up, I just thought to myself… I had only slept for three hours on my wedding night, yikes! And to top it off, my makeup lady was at the door and I was still half asleep in bed…
My mom escorted Sharon up to my room as I still lay warm in my blankets. I finally managed to roll out of bed and I as I arose I turned to Sharon and said, “I bet you have never been to a Brides home and she was still sleeping when you got there!” and of course she replied, “nope, you are the first bride to do that!”
Sharon set up her things as I finally showered, brushed my teeth and finished up my normal morning routine. Her sincere patience, calm demeanor and ability to laugh at the situation with me made this experience absolutely idyllic.
I really didn’t know what to expect…I had never been dressed in such adornment before.  However, I did have vague ideas that Sharon so easily brought to life. After 3 hours of constantly interrupted work (so many family members, friends and photographers bustling about), I was finally ready. Everyone in the house was in awe of Sharon’s work and I was thoroughly impressed and excited that my dream wedding was beginning in such a perfect way. She incorporated my unique looking wedding outfit with a unique look, exactly what I wanted….
Not only did I feel like an Indian Princess, I was comfortable all day and my makeup lasted from 5am to the wee hours of the night.  My husband was speechless… and that was my ultimate testament to Sharon’s work.
Thank you again for everything from the bottom of my heart.”

Sharon Rai Hair & Makeup Artistry arrived on-location in Nanaimo, BC early Easter Morning, to stylize Mandy for her traditional Sikh Wedding.  Mandy was great to work with, she loves makeup, and isn’t scared of color!  I met her three days before her wedding, when she arrived in-studio for her Wedding Day Preview, we went through the full hair, makeup, and styling, as it would be on her wedding day, view the picture below.

On the wedding day, Mandy looked absolutely beautiful, it was hard to believe she only had a few hours of sleep the night before!  Im excited to see her wedding photographs taken by the talented Suzanne Teresa, view more pictures of the Beautiful Bride.
