Meet Sabrina Lily – Hair & Make-Up Artist showing at Miss Vintage Wedding Affair


Meet  Sabrina Lily – Hair & Make-Up Artist.
       I am a London based Hair and Make-Up Artist. I trained at CBMA, an academy that specialised in Hair and Make Up research and styling for films and television – this training gave me a great insight into real period hair and make-up. From a beauty side I have worked at Space NK and worked with many other high end make-up brands and am absolutely obsessed with great skin, especially before a wedding day. Whether you want to look completely natural, or if you want a 40s lip or a complete 60s theme I can help you create a beautiful look for your day! I am currently working on Wicked the Musical, when I am not covered in green paint I work on a freelance basis on editorial shoots and weddings.

Join a Free Paper Rose Workshops with The Story House

Join a Free Paper Rose Workshops with The Story House , formally known as Moll & Mostin on the day of Miss Vintage Wedding Affair!

As part of the days events Lucy of The Story House has devised a great little workshop so that you can DIY your way to a unique day! You will create a paper rose, much like the ones in the photos shown here! Whether you want to use them for your bouquets, buttonholes or venue decorations, paper roses are easy, fun, size adaptable, and really versatile, as well as being beautiful. Use them to express your own interests, using vintage paper, sheet music, or, for those with itchy feet, maps.

Take a few moments away from the beautiful stalls, pop yourself down at The Story House craft table, and choose from a pile of beautiful vintage papers. In just half an hour you'll learn to make your beautiful paper roses. You'll come away with your own Paper Rose brooch and an instruction leaflet so you can reproduce them at home - all for free!

The workshops will be held at 11.20, 12.50, 14.20 and 15.30.

If you would like to sign up before the day of the fair, please email lucy@story-house.co.uk
