Real Bride, Aime

One of my many christmas brides, Aime, got married at Oxwich Bay Hotel this December and I've just received these lovely images from John Wellings Photography. Aime opted for a very natural, classic bridal look for herself and two bridesmaids.

Natural Bridal Make-Up

Last post covering a recent photoshoot for a bridal house in Swansea. This make-up look is natural and a classic look for a bride, particularly someone who wears no or minimal make-up.

Key points for this look:

Light base colour correcting any blemishes.

Emphasized the natural brow with brow gel.

Enhanced eyes with individual lashes and a light brown shadow.

Vintage Wedding Make-Up Before & After

'Vintage' is very popular for weddings, whether its a vintage dress, accessory or make-up.

Its great to be able to take different influences from each decade and adapt them to suit each client and event. Be it a 1940's soft coral lip and small flick eyeliner or 1950's bold red lip with a strong black flick and extended lashes, a personal favourite is the 1920's, a soft smokey eye and deep plum lip.

I recently did a photo shoot for a bridal collection and have some behind the scenes images and steps involved in achieving an adapted 1920's look, enjoy x

Bridal Make-Up Trial Swansea

Here are a few snaps from a trial earlier today with gorgeous bride-to-be, Sophie.

Sophie wanted lots of lashes, which we achieved by building individual lashes so that they still looked very natural with a soft flick, some natural contouring with flawless skin and a pink/nude lip.

Styled shoot @ Hensol Castle with Cwtch The Bride

A few months ago I had the pleasure of being involved in a Vanity Fair styled photo shoot with top welsh wedding blog Cwtch The Bride. They had a wonderful idea, to use real local brides to model a collection of Two Birds bridesmaids dresses as well as Mooshki vintage dresses, all set in the idyllic location of Hensol Castle. The shoot showcased some of the best wedding suppliers across South Wales, including amazing hair styling by Yume, Cardiff as well as beautiful dresses, headpieces, flowers and wedding props.

Here are some of my favourite images from behind the scenes, more pictures can be seen on my facebook page and bridal portfolio.... enjoy! X
