One of my most favourite New Forest wedding venue’s is Hale Park Weddings, located in stunning Fordingbride. If you are still searching for your perfect country venue, then please let me encourage you to add this gem to your search list ✨
‘Neighbour to the River Avon and with the local village church conveniently a minute’s walk away from the main house, this unique venue has it all and more. The house itself is very classic in its design providing a romantic setting that is also so very versatile. The sheer breathtaking beauty of its grounds are highly reminiscent of a French châteaux.’
I love a Christmas wedding, having had my own wedding at this time 8 years ago now! So when Sara asked me to provide services of hair and makeup for her festive wedding I was delighted.
Sara, not one for wearing makeup or having her hair styled very often, wanted me to create a really delicate makeup design using silvers and greys through the eyes. The key words were soft and light, so I went in with a really gentle touch. As Sara has a half shaved style with platinum blonde locks to one side, I just added a subtle wave to soften the general look and provide a more traditional ‘bridal’ look with Sara’s signature modern stance.
“Thank you so much for making me feel like a princess yesterday, I’ve never been lucky enough to look in the mirror and like what I’ve seen before!
Roo’s face when she saw me was a picture and I will never be able to thank you enough for making me feel so special.
After a lovely meeting with Pylewell’s new wedding co-ordinator Melanie, I am very excited to announce that I am now the recommended makeup artist for Lymington wedding venue Pylewell Park. Can’t wait to get started on making their brides feel completely pampered & glamorous for their big day x
I am very excited to see our latest styled shoot featured on the very fabulous Want That Wedding wedding blog, launching today. I had so much fun organising this one and pulling my dream team together again to create something feminine, sexy and powerful. Something which I think we all need to celebrate and be reminded of now and again… we’re women and we have incredible strength.
“You know what’s really, powerfully sexy? A sense of humour. A taste for adventure. A healthy glow. Hips to grab on to. Openness. Confidence. Humility. Appetite. Intuition. … Smart-ass comebacks. Presence. A quick wit. Dirty jokes told by an innocent-looking lady. … A storyteller. A genius. A doctor. A new mother. A woman who realises how beautiful she is”. ~ Courtney E. Martin
Watch my blog closely in the next few weeks as I’ll be revealing how I created model Jess’s sensual makeup design.
What a beautiful sunny winter’s day! Just perfect for Natalie and Steve’s New Forest wedding today. I arrived at Natalie’s parents house for a respectable 9am start to do the makeup for the bride and bridesmaid, with Anne Burge of Simply You Bridal Hair providing her expert hair skills. Natalie wanted a classic brown smokey eye with loads of shimmer on the inner lid, with lashings of highlighter and a burgundy lip shade. I loved designing this winter bridal look for Natalie x
Your bridal makeup should always be breathtaking, luxurious and yet honest. I truly believe your wedding day is the one day when everyone and everything has to play their ‘A’ game!
“Frances you were a true treasure to find and did such an amazing job of not only my make up but all my bridesmaids. Thank you for making me feel so good and every time I look back at the photos I marvel at how natural yet glamorous my make up was 🙂 xx”
Lucy, The Master Builder’s at Buckler’s Hard
Today is the wedding of Charlie and Andy at The Master Builder’s at Buckler’s Hard Hotel, located near Beaulieu in the New Forest. I arrived this morning to a chilled out bride, who was very much excited about the day ahead! The perfect way to enjoy your wedding day. Charlie sat very calmly while I applied her wedding makeup look, just pausing to crack jokes now again about ‘cat fight club’… it’s a long story!!
I met Charlie not long ago for her bridal makeup trial and thoroughly enjoyed designing this pretty ‘soft focus’ makeup look for her. She allowed me free reign to come up with something special for her, that tied in all her wedding elements such as her flowers, wedding gown and theme. Charlie’s skin is in wonderful condition so I didn’t need to spend too much time correcting the complexion, allowing me extra time to perfect the eye design. I really wanted to give an impression of a contour to the eyes, with an optical illusion of a softer finish. Which I think has worked particularly well.
It was a joy to work with Charlie and her mum. I wish her all the very best in her married life x
Tomorrow I will be at The Master Builder’s at Buckler’s Hard wedding showcase from 12 till 5pm. This very chic wedding venue will be packed with elite local wedding suppliers, all there to talk you through any questions you may have about your big day…and most importantly we’ll all have our diaries for bookings! The hotel will also be providing personal tours of the entire venue, so you really get a good idea of what it would be like to have your wedding at this stunning hotel.
Come and have a chat with me about your bridal makeup! x
