Yesterday I was informed by Kelly & Dave’s wedding photography Sarah Williams that their wedding is currently featured on one of the biggest blogs out there… Love My Dress. I am so happy for Kelly & Dave as they are both incredibly lovely people, so utterly deserve their wedding to be seen by others and for those new couples to be inspired to create their own romantic big day. Kelly and her bridesmaids were an absolute dream to work with – they were all so relaxed with their makeup requirements and were happy for me just to design away in the morning.
It was just such a perfect day and this is definitely the icing on the cake!

Last Monday I had the very wonderful privilege of organising a styled shoot for a new wedding venue in the New Forest. Hale Park is a privately owned country estate in Fordingbridge that is poised to host all sorts of grand events including weddings. There is even the local village church in its grounds!
Charlotte Wise and myself wanted to create a very feminine and delicate styled shoot for Hale. Using the stunning grounds as our playground and backdrop. We think it has a very french chateaux appeal and we hope you like it just as much as we do.
Look out for it when it goes viral soon! In the meantime, here are a few sneak peaks 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.

It’s hard to believe that we created this shoot way back in March on Mothering Sunday. It was a lovely sunny day – gorgeous light and a nice warmth coming from Hill Place’s large windows, which made the shoot extra special.
I first approached photographer Tasha, of Ikonworks fame, about doing a 1940’s Atonement inspired shoot around January and she immediately loved the idea. I said I wanted it more historical than typical vintage – steering away from any ‘vintage’ cliches like red lipstick or Marilyn Monroe references. This was to be a very English affair. We then brought on styling team What Peggy Did Next, to which they then suggested the shoot to be held at Hill Place, which they help to run as a wedding venue. From there we then contacted our trusted suppliers and good friends to join us on this massive adventure. And no detail was too small either – I even travelled to Sussex one day to pick up the cocktail table from The Toast Events!
Seeing the shoot featured on Whimsical Wonderland Weddings is a complete dream and really is the icing on the cake.
We LOVE this shoot and we hope you do too x
