Camp Katur, an alternative wedding venue North Yorkshire

The beginning of August was an exciting time for me.  Apart from going away for my summer  holiday to Zante.  I also got to re-visit  a newly found favourite alternative wedding venue of mine, Camp Katur in Bedale, North Yorkshire.  I was there to do lovely Lorna’s wedding hair and makeup.

I think this was my favourite wedding of 2014 just because it was right up my street! From the quirky venue, the Glamping accomodation, the laid back feel and Lorna and her now husband Liam, were both so cool! You know when you just want to be friends with someone!

The beautifying began with me setting Lorna’s hair, she had a lot of hair and wanted a relaxed, natural wave, Boho style.  I used hair straighteners to curl her hair fairly tightly and then clipped the hair in barrel curls to cool and set the curl. Babylis pro heated rollers, in my opinion the best rollers out there are an alternative of getting a similar style if you can’t curl with straighteners.

For the make up at the trial Lorna tried a fairly dark smokey eye with a light pink glossy lip and flawless skin. When it came to the wedding day Lorna’s decided to tone down the eyes a little, so we went for bronze tones on the eyes and kept the flawless skin and natural pink glossy lip.

When the bridal make up was done I unclipped the curls and brushed through them a couple of times until they fell into a nice relaxed wave. Her wedding hair and makeup was completed with the fab 20’s style diamanté hair accessory she had picked.

Despite the crazy weather we had on the day, Lorna stayed so positive. Most brides would have let it get to them a bit, especially having an outdoor ceremony in the woods, staying in the glamping village at night and having the evening celebrations in the rustic barn….. however this is what made the whole day a memorable one.
