I had a lovely surprise this morning opening my inbox to find these gorgeous images by Maddie Waters Photography sitting there! Georgina was my bride from October 2018 and I had such a great time being with her, for her wedding at Sopley Mill. Georgina was amazing at allowing me free reign to design her something utterly feminine, yet with a sultry twist. Something which I knew she would pull off beautifully x
“Frances, Thank you so much, not only for the best make-up I’ve ever had!! But also for being such a clam & kind presence during the madness that is getting ready for your wedding day. You are an absolute star & amazing at what you do! Georgina xx”
Georgina, Sopley Mill Wedding, October 2018
Yesterday I had the HUGE pleasure of doing the bridal makeup for Georgina, for her wedding at Sopley Mill in Dorset. I’ve been luckily enough to have done quite a few weddings at this venue in the last year, and I always get a thrill whenever I return as the place is just stunning. Georgina was such an amazing person to design for as her skin was so flawless, and her blue eyes just popped with any colour. For her bridal makeup Georgina wanted a soft smokey eye, neatly lined with a flawless sheen of foundation – a bit of blusher, contouring and highlighter. We finished off the look with Georgina’s favourite lipstick shade MAC in Peach Blossom x

Gorgeous bride Rachel and Chris got married at Dorset wedding venue Sopley Mill this summer, and what a glorious day they had for it. Super hot and sunny! I simply loved designing Rachel’s bridal makeup – making it all about the eyes. These are my most favourite images of their day, beautifully captured by Mia Photography, Rachel and her beau and one with her girlies… just everything a wedding should be about x
