Married at the Laurel Point Inn – SR Bride Tells her Story….

November 2, 2011

“Shortly after becoming engaged I was eager to find the perfect person to stylize my hair and makeup for my engagement shoot and my wedding day. It was important to me that I was able to find someone who specialized in bridal hair & makeup. Since I’ve only lived in Victoria for 5 years I wasn’t familiar with anyone who provided these services. It was through word of mouth I learned about Sharon Rai Hair & Makeup Artistry. After meeting with her, I decided she was definitely the perfect stylist I was hoping to find to be a part of this big event in my life.

Initially I wasn’t entirely sure of how I wanted my hair and makeup to look the day of the wedding, other than it had to look and make me feel completely fabulous. Sharon was fantastic at brainstorming different ideas based on my skin tone, the shape of my face, the length and colour of my hair, the style of my dress and my personality. 

I loved having the wedding day preview, I found this was really helpful to see how I would look on the day of my wedding. This included appetizers, trying different styles of hair and makeup, then getting into my wedding dress with all the accessories and having a mini photo shoot. It was really helpful to take these pictures because we could then see how well everything photographed together. This allowed us to make some changes we felt were necessary.

I loved having Sharon come to my hotel room the morning of my wedding. It just made my life so much easier that she provides mobile services. All I had to do that morning was wake up, shower and eat breakfast, the rest was in her hands, and I felt so excited and relaxed having her be a part of the big day. Once she had finished with my hair and makeup I couldn’t get over how AMAZING I felt and looked. I still get excited just thinking about it. My hair and makeup held up the entire day which was from 1pm til 3:30am! When my husband first saw me he was completely blown away with how I looked. He had loved what she did with my hair and makeup for our engagement shoot, but just couldn’t get over how she topped herself even more with our wedding day.  Everyone at the wedding  and those who have only seen some of our wedding photos have commented how stunning I looked.  I’ve been asked many times who did my hair and makeup. I definitely feel it was worth the investment I made to have Sharon’s services for my wedding day and engagement shoot.

I would highly recommend Sharon and her team for any occasion! She just makes you feel and look amazing. You will still look like yourself, but just a more fabulous self and honestly who doesn’t want to feel that way!”

Laurel Point Inn Brides chats about her SR Experience!

October 3, 2011

“Sharon Rai and her team of professional hair and make-up artists created a natural and elegant look that suited the individual styles of my mom, my mother-in-law, my three bridesmaids and me as we got ready together. They came to our venue to get us ready — it felt like we had our own individualized professional hair and make-up team for a day.  Not only that, the process of getting ready was relaxed, fun and easy.  Sharon is very organized, and professional and she and her team are exceptionally talented.  Sharon had a huge part in keeping me on-time, beautiful, picture-perfect, relaxed, worry-free and ready to enjoy every moment of the wedding day. Sharon had created a look that best suited my personality, my style and my dress– when she was done, I was so impressed with the look she created and very excited to walk down the aisle to see my husband. It was a pleasure working with Sharon and her team. Our wedding party was very happy to have Sharon contribute her time and talent to our special day.”

Testimonial from Calgary SR Bride

Testimonial from SR Bride Rupinder, working with Sharon Rai Hair & Makeup Artistry.

“My experience with Sharon was fabulous!  I did have high expectations as I have seen Sharon’s work prior to my wedding reception and I knew I could count on her.  My experience was unique as I live outside of British Columbia, and Sharon flew to Calgary, Alberta, to provide me with her service.
From the moment Sharon entered my room to begin my hair & makeup, she was upbeat, positive, and calming.  I was of course nervous about my big moment that evening, but Sharon was able to keep me calm, and helped me to enjoy every minute of the event.  Together we laughed, shared stories, and bonded as she worked on glaming me up.  Sharon was professional, yet down to earth and easy to talk to.  She ensures that she understands what it is that you want for your look, but is also able to provide you with tips and advice for your look.
If I were to go back in time and do this all over again, there would be no doubt that I would request Sharon again! “

Testimonial from Victoria SR Bride

SR Bride, Roxanne, was a pleasure to work with for her wedding taking place in Sooke, BC.  Here is her review on her SR experience:

“We eloped this summer and I hired Sharon Rai Hair & Makeup Artistry for my hair and makeup and I couldn’t have been more impressed with her professionalism and incredible service.  Sharon worked with me to tailor a package to what I needed that would work within my budget.  I had never had my makeup professionally done so I was a bit nervous as I didn’t know what to expect. She listened to me and did exactly what I had asked. She offered her honest opinion of what would look best for me.  Her studio is so welcoming and I felt totally comfortable and at ease with her.
Sharon, thank you for making my special day even more special with your talent and expertise. I will recommend you to everyone I know.”
