Sarah´s first enquiry with me was in the spring of this year, with less than 5 months to go and a large wedding to organise, she had hit what I always refer to as the ´Wedding Wall´ and she knew I was the only wedding planner here that would envisage her dream and make it come true.

Whilst quite a few suppliers were in place, there was still a lot of work to be done.  With a short engagement combined with a busy date in September set Sarah had also discovered many popular, and easy to find on the internet, suppliers were already booked.

When I met with Sarah, and her charming mother, at their beautiful home in Sotogrande, the location for her wedding, they also explained to me that they wanted the pressure taken off them, someone who knew exactly what they were doing, had experience and to assist and finish the planning, finalise the budget, organise the suppliers and have a team present on the day.

I explained I was already personally booked on their actual wedding day and would be in Barcelona, but I would work with them on the lead up to the wedding and put a team into place to oversee the day.  (more…)

Nestled in the hills between Mijas and Fuengirola with stunning views over the coastline, is the location of an extremely popular restaurant which has been running for years, the Valparaiso.

Since 1984 Valparaiso´s charismatic owner, Raffaele, has welcomed hundreds of famous people to his establishment and as you enter you are whipped back in time to the glamour of the 80´s and 90´s.

The walls of the reception are adorned with framed photos of famous faces who have frequented this restaurant from James Hunt, the racing driver, to Cilla Black and more recently the Beckhams.  There are so many famous faces it is really quite a sight to see.

The charming restaurateur, Raffaele, works his magic to make sure visiting his restaurant is a romantic experience and always hands out red roses to the ladies, me included!  Often during planning this wedding I rocked out of there with a red rose between my teeth!

When Ashleigh first got in touch with me from New York, she had already booked the Finca and church in preparation for their wedding in Spain.

The catering was also confirmed but Ashleigh had hit the proverbial ´wedding wall´as I like to call it.  Still required was all the furniture, glassware, linens and decoration plus someone to pull it all together and oversee the day.

I love a challenge and thought how lovely, a beautiful Finca near Iznajar in the middle of June, perfect weather and a stunning location.  This wedding has now gone into my top ten hottest weddings ever as the heatwave we suffered in June drove the temperatures up to the mid forties!  Never have I been so hot without air con to dash into!

Sparkling Christmas Beauty Tips from Nikki

December 1st, 2012 Posted by Bridal Hair and Make Up Marbella, Delightful details, Festive Fun, Glitter, Shiny Sponsors 0 thoughts on “Sparkling Christmas Beauty Tips from Nikki”

December has finally arrived and we are all set to sparkle and shimmy through Christmas.  With parties and glitter on our minds we are delighted to share some fabulous make up and beauty tips from our make up expert Niki at Marbella MakeUp to ensure we are all glittering for the festive season!
Our gorgeous tips from Niki.
 
Add a hair accessory for instant glamour opt for diamante clips and combs which are easy to grip into the hair.
Apply a touch of glitter or shimmery lipgloss. This can be worn alone or apply over the top of your favourite lipstick.
 
For gorgeous glowing skin this winter apply a highlighter.  I prefer crèmes rather than powders which can appear heavy.  Apply using fingertips to blend gently under the arch of the brow bone and down onto the top of the cheekbones. I love Benefit Highbeam and Moonbeam as well as MAC’s strobe cream.

For glitzy nails choose a glitter nail polish, this can be clear and worn alone over a bare nail or on top of your favourite colour.  Choose the latest craze 3D nails! Nazila’s nail glitz will embellish your fingertips with beautiful jewels.
Apply a shimmering body lotion or oil for gleaming radiant skin.  I love Nuxeshimmer oil this hydrates skin and leaves a gorgeous golden sheen.
If you are all about the eyes apply a line of glitter gel eyeliner along the lashline or add a touch of glitter on top of your eyeshadow.  If you like to experiment with colour use a shimmering bright eyeshadow or pigment to create dramatic eyes.
 
Accessorise your eye makeup by added a set of sparkly false lashes.  If you are not quite that daring try applying a few individual cluster lashes or a set of corner lashes for a more subtle glamorous effect.  Apply using DUOadhesive available at MAC for long lasting wear.
 
Create a metallic silver smoky eye.  Apply a kohl pencil around the eye smudging and blending well using a small firm brush.  I like to use MAC’s 219 brushfor this.  Apply a little black or dark grey shadow on top to set the liner and intensify the colour. Next apply silver over the lid up to the socket blending well.
For some more festive inspiration see my glitter and sparkle mood-board on Pinterest and wishing you all a very sparkly Christmas!
