Months and months ago I was booked to do the lovely Maria and her friend’s wedding nails, we had discussed colours and she even sent me her mood board! I love an organised bride!!
The day came and I drove to Hackney to meet her, she had hired an Airbnb and OMG it was super cool! Think exposed brickwork, DJ decks, loads of vinyl, and a very cool kitchen! When can I move in?!
I set myself up and was offered food and drink, they had ordered Wagamama and said I can have anything I want, so sweet of them but I had 5 sets of nails to do and it was 6.30pm, so time to crack on!!
I did Maria’s friends first and then when she sat down I asked what colour she wanted, what her dress and shoes are like so we can find the right colour, most of my brides go for pale pinks, French manis, some are daring and go red…. Maria told me she was wearing a pink sequin dress and deep maroon shoes, which I LOVE LOVE LOVE the sound of! She wanted 5 different shades of purple, and that is what she got!
I was chatting away while working and didn’t end up leaving there until 10pm, I love doing group bookings, and pre-wedding sessions are such fun, especially when the bride and all her friends are so super chilled and really friendly!
