Just received these gorgeous images by Emily & Steve Photography of Nicki and Deej’s wedding, held in my hometown of Lymington! As Nicki loves festivals and was due to have an outdoor wedding in a stunning marquee, she wanted her bridal makeup to reflect this loose boho feel. Keeping the eye makeup simple with just a bone colour with plenty of sparkle, I then focused on creating a classic flawless base to keep the design ‘bridal’ x
Today is the wedding of Amy and Angus, and what an absolutely perfect day it is for them! The beautiful couple meticulously planned every little detail for their garden wedding, held at Angus’s parents house in Wiltshire, and it really paid off today with gorgeous bell tents, hale bales and a marquee like no other!
When I met Amy for her makeup trial she was very open to ideas, but said that she very much wanted to wear coral lipstick for her big day sooo… her wish was my command! I teemed Amy’s boho chic hairstyle and wedding gown with a coral and brown smokey eye, a little blusher and contour – finishing up with that coral lipstick x
It’s always nice to look back and see what you’ve accomplished, where you’ve been and the people that you’ve worked with. I often find myself looking back at old photos of clients I have had the pleasure of doing the makeup for, and just seeing if my technique and methods have changed and developed.
It’s so strange to think that I did Emma’s bridal makeup way back in April 2015! How time flies! I remember Emma being a particularly easy client, as she just wanted something sweet, soft, a bit boho chic – but nothing too fussy. I have so many fond memories of that day, with Emma’s bridesmaids getting ready in the background and having a giggle…just what a wedding morning should be like!

Your bridal makeup trial is a vitally important element to your overall makeup design. It gives us the opportunity to discuss and look through any images of your wedding gown, flowers and theme. To also talk through what you want from your bridal makeup – do you want to have a subtle or bold approach? Or do you want the makeup to follow a 1950’s, Boho or Art deco theme?
I believe it is paramount for you to have choices for your wedding, but I am also there to help guide and advise.
I treat the trial as a completely open forum where any idea and opinion is welcome.
