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.

“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!

Priya with her SR Experience -Married in Victoria BC “I knew I looked great and honestly the gasps and oohs and aahs from everyone at my house felt awesome!”

To those considering Sharon Rai as their makeup and hair artists. Honestly, do it, you wont regret it!

My cousin recommended Sharon to me when I first started looking for a hair and makeup artist for my wedding. At the very first consultation Sharon was super nice, patient and not pushy at all which was opposite to how other makeup and hair artists meetings had gone. I booked her as soon as I could and the wedding day consult couldn’t come fast enough. When it did my mom and I went to Sharon’s Studio where we were treated like friends rather than clients. She had treats and tea ready for us and helped me pick out my perfect look along with a fun photo shoot after. Finally the wedding day came and Sharon arrived at my parents house bright and early at 4am. Sharon was calm and cool and had me ready earlier than expected. I knew I looked great and honestly the gasps and oohs and aahs from everyone at my house felt awesome! When it came time to leave the house things became a bit chaotic but Sharon quickly came to me to say bye and skip out the mayhem. I wish I could have said thank you properly which is the reason i’m writing this testimonial.  My look lasted all day, my dupatta didn’t move an inch and tourists were stopping me on the street and commenting on my outfit and hair and makeup. Thank you Sharon for making me look and feel beautiful on my wedding day!
