Aside from my husband, my mum is my absolute best friend. We are super close and it was hugely important to me that my mum had the time of her life on my wedding day. Sadly, her husband – my dear stepdad – is in care with alzheimers and although he could make it along for a precious hour of our wedding, essentially mum faced the day on her own.
With such a rough couple of years behind her, mum felt she needed some professional attention to ensure she didn’t look how she had been feeling…drained, emotional and, in her words, ten years older than she was.
On the day, my mum could not have looked more incredible. Despite not being a one for make-up previously, she allowed the expert to work her magic and I’m sure she turned as many heads as me, the bride, on the day.
I’m sure my mum isn’t alone when it comes to feeling the pressure of looking her best on her daughter’s big day. In fact, wedding specialist make-up artist Celina Keywood (www.makeupbycelina.co.uk) has made it her mission to make mums of brides and grooms – and even nans – feel a million dollars on their special day.
