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.
