Bridal Prep

I will remain forever grateful that I get to collaborate with the most incredible suppliers and create something beautiful! On this particular shoot at Kirtlington Park I did the makeup alongside the incredible hair stylist who goes by 'Hair by Holly'. Our brief was romantic and luxurious, the perfect combination to match the venue! As you can see Holly created a gorgeous elegant up-do. To enhance the hairstyle more Holly used the beautiful hair accessories supplied and created by Miss Clemmie - if you are bride to be and looking for the perfect accessories for your big day look no further!

When deciding what makeup to apply I knew immediately soft blushes would fit the theme and also suit our gorgeous model Shannon! I used the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow talk collection, this consists of pink blush, soft pearl shimmers and rose gold sparkles. Every product applied was blended seamlessly so you could not see where any part started or ended to create flawless bridal makeup.

Throughout the photoshoot I intensified the makeup slightly to compliment the coral hues thrown in to add a splash of summer. A slightly stronger lip went harmoniously with the bright flower arrangements used later on in the shoot. Shannon was a dream to work on and she stole the show when fully dressed in beautiful gowns from The Bride. If you're looking for a show stopper bridal gown look no further! They are based in St Albans, Buckinghamshire.
