Victoria Bride talks about her Experience with the SR Team

April 15, 2012

“I felt absolutely beautiful as did my bridesmaids – we looked amazing!” 
“Before hiring Sharon Rai Hair and Makeup Artistry to stylize my wedding look I was skeptical of anyone being able to create the look I was hoping for.  From Sharon and her team not only did I receive the look I was hoping for but it was more elegant and refined than I had imagined it could ever be.  I felt absolutely beautiful as did my bridesmaids – we looked amazing!  Sharon and her team were professional and fun which made for a stress free relaxing afternoon.  My advice for those thinking of hiring Sharon and her team is to not think or look any further these are the most talented ladies your gonna find!!!!!  Thank you Sharon and your team for making my day that much more special!”

Here is her story from her wedding day that she submitted:

“My husband and I got married 23 years ago when I was 18 years old.  It was a different era then and I hadn’t yet had a chance to develop my own sense  of who I was or what my style would look like.  Weddings were not elaborate affairs and very few people had professional hair and make-up. 

I graduated from highschool in June 1988 in Campbell River, BC.  My wedding was set one month later on July 30th of that same year.  My dad picked an ordered the wedding invitations and we bought everything for my wedding in one trip to Vancouver’s main street.  There was no shopping around for the perfect wedding outfit or reception outfit.  We walked into Frontier and looked at the 5 or so wedding outfits and picked one.  We then proceeded across the street and bought a gold set and bangles and called it a day.

Back in  Campbell River, I popped into the Shoppers Drug Mart and bought burgundy lipstick and nailpolish and that was the totality of my wedding makeup.  On my wedding day, my 18 old self  crowded into my parents bathroom (which consisted of a toilet and sink) and proceeded to do my own make up.  A friend came over and helped me put my hair up in a bun making sure to leave my bangs out in a messy bird’s nest type concoction.  She tied my chunni and I grabbed flowers that my dad had ordered from a local florist and off I went to get married.

My Dad had hired a professional photographer but my husband’s family didn’t have the patience to wait for the pictures because they wanted to catch the next ferry back to the mainland.  The pictures that were taken included everybody under the sun but none of just my husband and I or us with my family.  My husband’s family friend took pictures for them and there are hundreds of 5X6 pictures but none of us…lots of his family etc.

To this day, I don’t look at my wedding pictures and have not watched my own wedding video.  Even though we are a lot older, I would love to have some beautiful pictures that I would be proud to frame and place in my home.”

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!”

October 2, 2011

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!
