Shemi + Sohail – Three Day Wedding Festivities

Looking through this couple’s pictures and I can’t help but smile. The two of them have a unique bond and a great sense of humour together. I got to know Shemi very well from the time I did her makeup and hair for their engagement shoot months back to the time of their wedding. She has become a friend and it was such fun beautifying her for her wedding events. During the past few months not only was Shemi planning her wedding, and packing up to move into her new home with her new husband, but she also graduated to become a doctor. What an achievement!

Shemi and I had a lot of fun creating her hair and makeup looks for each event. For their Day 1 Pre-Wedding Ceremony on May 27, 2012, we created a half-up half-down mostly side-swept hair style with waves. I needed to create height in her hair as I had to attach her beautiful flowers into her hair. Her saree was mostly lime green with turquoise and hints of orange. I used all three colors in her eye makeup, keeping it softly blended with bold eyelashes. For Day 2 Wedding Ceremony on June 1, 2012, I created an “Adele” hair style using hair pieces and keeping her bangs softly teased with height to give her look structure and elegance. For me the hair is super important as she had to feel comfortable with the least amount of bobby pins as her dupatta was very heavy. Her makeup look was so gorgeous. I used a passionate pink color all over her lids with gold and cream blending through to match the colors in her saree. I gave her gorgeous thick lashes, and plum tinted cheeks and lips. I applied pink and silver crystals to her forehead and her tikka into her hairline. I attached Shemi’s dupatta onto her head, making sure there was no weight (I love hair pieces!!). Her overall dress was so rich in texture and fabric and her ornaments were so glamorous. I wanted to jump onto the next plane to Indian! For their Day 3 Reception, this was a really fun day for her hair and makeup. Shemi wanted me to create a side bun with lots of texture as seen on Scarlett Johansson. I again used makeup colors to match her dress. I blended silver, royal blue and gold onto her eye lids and again focused on strong eyelashes. She looked stunning! To top it all off, I attached her gorgeous draped earrings and tikka.

Shemi was a beautiful bride, and she took three totally different looks and rocked all of them. I had so much fun working with her and getting her know her. Sohail and Shemi are adorable together and I know they are going to enjoy each and everyday together as husband and wife.
