Lou is one of those regulars I've met at various events and even in hospital. She's one of those characters you instantly get on with. I first remember painting her daughter at a Halloween event with a beautiful rose on her forehead to match her black and red outfit. I would never have guessed then that Lou would book me for her other daughters wedding.
What a fantastic venue and what a wedding reception. I thought I was on set at Peaky Blinders. Everyone there was in theme with their peak hats and era clothing. The bride looked stunning and it's probably one of the only times i'll ever see Lou in a dress. I couldn't believe how grown up my painted rose was since I saw her last!
The majority of guests wanted sparkles with a couple asking for quite random face paints such as a goldfish and octopus, ha ha ha! Such a shame my battery died I'd have loved a photo of that! The most out there had to be the glitter hair! That was awesome fun. I wonder if he is still finding glitter now?
I really had a wonderful time and I am honoured to be booked for such a special day. Until we meet again I wish all your family a wonderful future full of good health, prosperity and of course smiles!
About the author
I have been face painting and creating smiles with my hair braids, tattoos and body paints for 13 years after finally taking the jump and becoming self employed in 2006. Having a large network of friends I have been able to establish a network of quality face painters and glitter tattoo artists who have a passion for the job which shows in their work throughout the South & South West of England. Orginating from a customer service & sales background the best thing I ever did was become self employed. The money might not be as good but the job satisfaction seeing lots of happy smiles is the best. I hope to continue for many more years to come.
