HAIR “It’s really important for Steven to have the hair looking modern, but with a real sophisticated elegance about it. We’ve spent a lot of time preparing the hair before styling, getting it smooth and the cuticle nice and flat by using products such as Diamond Gloss and Hair Lacquer.

A beautiful vintage-country-themed wedding with a unique style WE LOVEThe unique use of train tracks in the couple's photos THE LOVE BUG Rhys and Amy both attended the same high school and shared mutual friends. Amy later moved in with Rhys as a housemate but eight months later, the love bug bit and Rhys started to fall for her. “Rhys would come into my room at least once a week for a good three months asking if I would be his girlfriend. I would reply, ‘no, not today, Rhys’, until Christmas day when he asked me that morning. I really could not say no on Christmas.” Rhys proposed at his parents’ farm, where the couple had shared their first date. Being Amy’s birthday that weekend, she thought they were just there to…
