The rules and feelings regarding planning your wedding in the UK right now are confusing, I know. Confusing, but also a bit stressful. Weddings are a time of celebration and love and should be a time full of happiness! It is not a time that you want to feel stressed and anxious. Last nights update on moving London into Tier 3 has us all a bit sad for sure. I myself am going to take the next few weeks of time to enjoy the festive season as much as I can but also to look ahead of this time. I am going to look int early 2021 and with hope that we can plan micro celebrations for you!
I created the Wedding Collection : London Micro Wedding Planning with a group of talented London wedding suppliers to make your micro wedding easier, not stressful, beautiful and fun! Today I am sharing the lady that makes you feel your most BEAUTIFUL on your wedding day, the lovely Sanni Sorma. Sanni is beyond lovely as a person and will make you feel relaxed and leave you looking radiant to say I do! Read on to find out more about fabulous Sanni.
Tell me a little bit about yourself and your business?
I love working as a makeup artist & hair stylist. I work mostly with destination weddings and elopments but I also work on advertising shoots, TV and editorial photoshoots. I am based out of London and during the wedding season also Paris. I work all around the UK, France, Italy and Europe wide.
Through my job I meet the most incredible people and visit gorgeous locations. I love connecting with new people I consider it an honour to be a small part of my clients wedding day.
I would describe my style of makeup as chic, modern and always – always – what suits my clients the best. We work together to find the perfect look for your shoot, wedding or event.
How long have you been professionally doing wedding hair & makeup?
9 years now, can’t quite believe it!
How would people describe your signature style?
Luminous, glowing skin. I love daytime smokey eyes with lots of individual lashes and gorgeous full brows.
What is your favorite part of the wedding day?
When the brides dad walks into the room and sees his daughter for the first time. I get all misty eyed.
Any advice to couples planning a wedding during these crazy times?
Be prepared to change everything and go with the flow. Concentrate on what’s important, marrying the person you love. Circumstances, venues, amount of guests…all this can change but it doesn’t mean that your wedding will be any less special – probably even more so considering this time will go down in history!
What is the most recent beauty trend you are loving?
I do love the trend of natural, full brows, brushed all the way up. It lifts the face, looks modern and less ‘done’ than perfectly manicured brows.
What have you been doing to keep yourself busy and your creative mind going during lockdown?
I’ve picked up design work again – I used to work as an Art Director. Design work I can do during lockdown and at home and it gives me a great creative outlet. As well as an income of course!
