{Design Palette} Enchanted Forest

Curve Hair Studio (curvehairstudio.com) styled the bride and her bridemaids. They explain, “Wedding styles are becoming more organic and romantic in the sense that brides want to see more textures, soft natural tones, and lots of personal touches and DIY for their special day. Jacqueline was no different; she had her wedding at her family home surrounded by forest and beautifully manicured gardens. She wanted her style of rustic elegance to translate through her hair and make up to create an effortless and enchanted look. Natural textures are a main focus for each of the ladies, making formal updos into a romantic touchable style. Twists and braids are a great addition for texture, movement, and personality within each style, especially when there are few or no hair accessories. Jacqueline’s hair piece and the flower girl’s floral crown were created by the bride and help to tie in the textures from the bouquets to the overall bridal feel.

Similar to wedding updo trends, make up styles have shifted from a lot of glitz and glam to more soft, charming, natural styles with muted tones.

A lot of what the girls requested was the smokey eye effects using matte greys, browns and blush with winks of gold and pink shimmers. The focus of the make up is to draw the eye to theirs using bold lashes and winged liners. Soft pinks and nudes on the lips to maintain a glowing fresh look without pulling your attention away from the enchanting eyes. The rustic elegance trend celebrates natural beauty using textures, colour, and details to enhance instead of obscure.”

ADVICE, ONE BRIDE TO ANOTHER: “Try not to stress about the little things. No one will notice except for you if something doesn’t turn out exactly as planned. It was pouring rain up until an hour before our outdoor ceremony. We couldn’t put out as many decorations as we had planned for, but no one knew any different and the rain made the gardens so much more green and beautiful. In hindsight we wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.” – J
