It’s the Wedding Season – come rain or shine!

Hello! It’s been a while since my last blog. Like many, I’ve found this year has just flown by! Already it’s Summer time, traditionally the ‘wedding season’, although I’ve been busy with bookings all year round, which is great taking me also to stunning venues like Orchard Leigh in Frome and Tortworth Court. Earlier this year, I had the pleasure of collaborating with Anusha Boutique, launching their new 2014 collection of beautiful vintage-style wedding accessories & jewellery. There were a fair number for Dan, the photograher to capture, so we wanted to achieve a few different hair styles to show off the variation of how of these gorgeous wedding accessories can be worn.The whole feel was soft, elegant and not over styled. I kept Sarah’s make-up fresh & natural using a range of MAC cosmetics, then a subtle change during the shoot was made for a more soft-smokey effect. First image shows MAC eyeshadow, ‘Copperplate’ – a matt, warm grey complimenting particularly green eyes beautifully. Another top favourite ‘Patina’, suiting all eye colours. A warm, golden beige with a soft sheen – perfect for brides who like a more natural look with a touch of glam.

Using my favourite MAC foundation, ‘Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15?, which I also use for brides and many other shoots. It gives a medium coverage with a very natural matt finish. Having powder built in really helps it to stay put which is good news for oily skin too. Best of all, you can’t even feel you are wearing it!

So knowing all too well we can’t depend on our lovely British weather on a wedding day. However, one thing you can guarantee for your special day (or any day) is looking absolutely gorgeous, enhancing your natural beauty with my make-up & hair service. After all, it’s your big day and you want to look your best in your photos that will be treasured for years to come!
