“When you look great, nothing else matters on your wedding day!” – Sharon Rai Bride

January 4, 2012
Before hiring Sharon Rai Hair & Makeup Artistry to stylize my wedding look, I was worried about my makeup! I don’t really wear any and had no idea what to do. I had hired an amazing photographer and wanted too look great in my wedding photos. When you spend a lot of money on a photographer, you want to look your best.  Sharon knew what make up would look best in photos and also listened to my ideas about how I wanted to look on the day.
From her services, I received hair and make up for myself and my mother in law and hair for both of my bridesmaids. I also did a wedding day preview where we experimented with different make up & hair and took photos to see how I would look on the day.
Hiring Sharon to do my hair and make up was a great decision. My day was totally stress free! I got compliments on my make up from everyone, as did my mother in law. Her transformation was amazing! I felt absolutely beautiful and all I had to do was minor touch ups here and there. When you look great, nothing else matters on your wedding day!
My advice for those thinking of hiring Sharon and her team is do it! Sharon is professional and knowledgeable. When you become a Sharon Rai Bride, you are given access to her website where you can ask questions. Sharon responded promptly to any questions I had. Having someone who could do both hair and make up was important to me because I wanted someone who could see my overall vision and execute it. I am recommending Sharon to all my friends who are getting married!

My hair and makeup lasted the entire night & I received so many compliments! – Hatley Castle SR Bride

November 22, 2011

Before meeting with Sharon I was not sure what to expect. The times I had my hair and make-up professionally done in the past was definitely hit and miss. We met a few days prior to my wedding to create “my look” at the wedding day preview.  Sharon listened to my ideas and created a glamorous, flawless look that was more perfect than I could have imagined!!  I loved it!!  On the day of my wedding, Sharon and her team arrived to the Laurel Point to recreate “my look” along with doing my bridesmaids, mother and mother-in-law’s hair and make-up. The afternoon was relaxed and completely stress free. My hair and make-up lasted the entire night and I received so many complements! Sharon and her team are talented, professional and a lot of fun to spend time with. I would definitely recommend Sharon Rai Hair & Makeup Artistry for any special occasion.

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.”
