Spring Vintage Bridal Photoshoot - Part 1

Hi everyone!

Last weekend I had the pleasure of being invited to do the makeup for Shan Fisher's (Shan's Photography)spring vintage photoshoot at the Tynwald National Park (Arboretum Park), St Johns, Isle of Man.

The weather was absolutely beautiful and I can't wait to see the next parts of the shoot on Shan's blog.

We are actually using all of the suppliers featured in this shoot for our wedding in July. It is lovely to work with all of them, who I now consider to be good friends! I am so pleased to have their services booked. :)

Suzanna was my model and was a pleasure to work with. I would love to do her makeup again. With her beauiful English Rose complexion, I went for a classic, romantic look with dramatic lashes. I drew inspiration from Shan and Heidi's beautiful vintage items to pick out the beutiful eau de nil colour for Suzanne's eyes.

Wedding hair inspiration

Evening all!

Hope you've enjoyed a lovely Mother's day.

I really enjoyed putting together my last blog post for wedding flowers so thought I'd continue with a version for hair.

For some reason, choosing a hair style for the wedding has left me undecided.

Here are some options I like:

A charming headpiece as the centre of attention:

An interesting variation of the side bun:

Incorporating twists, braids and soft tumbling curls for a bohemian vibe:

Half up and half down with curls:

A modern day princess tiara:

What do you think? Decisions, decisions!

Wedding flowers inspiration

Morning all!

Hope you've had a splendid week; here comes the weekend!

As we're meeting with our wedding florist today, the lovely Heidi at The Flower Studio St Johns, I thought I'd post some of my ideas for my bouquet and the bridesmaid's boquets after browsing the net recently for some general inspiration. All images are from Google images unless otherwise stated.

Our main flowers are telemagenta germini with lime green hypericum and alchemilla mollis (how do florists remember all these names?!)

So, some ideas....

How about an adorable little circle bag of flowers? The red rose boquet photo is from Alex Beadon Photography (check her Facebook Fanpage - she is amazing!)

Or a beautiful handheld bouquet with long trailing ribbons?

Or for something completely different, a beautiful heart. How adorbale is the creation by Heidi?

For the bridesmaid's bouquets I'd like some cute hand held posies with cute details.

I love the small details you can incorpate into our colour scheme; it's so fresh, zingy and summery!

Maybe a flower present for someone?

I would love to know what you think!

Have a lovely day!

Bubblegarm's 'Make me up' Sigma Competition

Hi ladies

I've done a further two entries for the lovely Bubblegarm's 'Make Me Up' Sigma Competition in the 'Make Me Blush'(Pink)and'Make Me Cool'(Teal).

'Make me Blush' (Pink)

'Make Me Cool'(Teal)

The pink is certainly not a 'wearable' look but make up is all about having fun and expressing yourself! The eyelashes are great fun and I was pleased to use them.

For the teal look I went for a tropical theme. I adore turquoise, blues and teals and this is definitely something I'd wear.

I will update with product information soon.

I would love to know what you think!
