Rebecca and her New Forest wedding at Chewton Glen

On Friday I had the pleasure of designing Rebecca’s bridal makeup for her wedding at Chewton Glen, and also provided hair and makeup services for her evening soiree event at another New Forest venue, Balmer Lawn.  Rebecca wanted her makeup to be delicate, soft and natural so as not to scare or worry her other half, who wanted her to remain quite bare-faced.  We spoke in depth about creating something that suited both parties and yet, was good enough to last and be gorgeous in photographs.

I think the final result is simply amazing and really suits Rebecca’s naturally flawless skin and green eyes.  As Rebecca isn’t really a lipstick person I used a really subtle blend of a moisturising lipstick in Chanel 54 Boy – a shade my bride’s just love x

Nicola and her rainy, yet brilliant wedding at Balmer Lawn Hotel

It is Nicola’s wedding today at the Balmer Lawn Hotel in Brockenhurst.  A fab venue that I have the privilege of being the recommended wedding supplier for.  I arrived at 8:30am to torrential rain at the venue, and left at 12pm with bright, sunny skies!  After doing Nicola’s bridesmaids and mother of the bride makeup, I then moved onto Nicola’s wedding design.  Nicola wanted something to emphasise her gorgeous brown, green eyes – topped with a flawless base and a touch of pink through the lips.  I also introduced the subtlest of pink through the eye to connect Nicola to her bridesmaids, who were all wearing blush pink gowns x



Amanda and her fairytale wedding at Balmer Lawn Hotel

Yesterday I had the great pleasure of doing the makeup for bride Amanda, on what shaped up to be a beautifully sunny day – just perfect for a fairytale wedding.  Amanda’s wedding dress was based upon the Disney animation Snow White, and came from the Disney wedding dress collection, so it definitely had impact in it’s stunning crimson colour.  To match her dress, Amanda had red roses in her plaited hair – so designing the makeup was quite tricky.  Amanda didn’t want anything too much, nor did we think red suited her english rose complexion.  So instead we opted for a coral colour for the lips, and kept the makeup very classic bridal so as not to over power the occasion and that incredible dress!
