A tribute to the brides...

This month we take a break from our usual format to pay tribute to the brides that year after year put their faith in us and give us the chance to be part of a very very special day. We hope you enjoy just a few of the photos we have on file from our Summer season.

If you are thinking about a wedding then the current makeup trends are:
Romantic goth polished, dramatic, moody and glamorous. Purple is a key shade for this season and characterizes well the dramatic undertow of dark, gothic romanticism.

The image of a ballerina projects poise, grace, and polished elegance. Natural tones offset this classic feminine, luxury look. Muted dove greys, pastel mauves, dusty flesh pinks and creamy nude tones, edged with charcoal and a touch of black, to give definition to the pastel palette.

Hair - keep with classic and soft styles with a modern or playful twist such as the traditional chignon or high bun with curling or backcombing. Pin high on the crown its so glamorous. Try a hair accessory such as silk flowers, lace, clips or headband.

Remember these are just trends and you can do whatever you like. And hey if you don't know we have plenty of up to date mags to trawl through.

If you are thinking of a hair and makeup artist for your wedding consider the following:

Your lead artist at Turret House reported to Peter King and Peter Owen the guys who got an Oscar for Lord of the Rings. She led a huge team of hair and makeup artists and worked on a number of the stars. She has also spent 10 years doing top end European commercials with the like of Tony Kaye and Ridley Scott.

We are not stuck with one makeup brand - we just buy the best of the different brands. YSL, Revlon, Chanel, Guerlain just to name a few.

We don't just view your face but we also look at your decolletage, back and shoulders. We also do a whole range of pre wedding preparations such as manicures, pedicures and facials.

Turret House is the perfect place to enjoy the preparation - its relaxing and the staff are dedicated to helping you with anything, even the last minute speech! Although we travel to anywhere, this is the perfect place to get away from what can be stressful preparation. Coming here is about you, not about everything else.

See you soon
