Truvelle Bridal Look Book Shoot in Turkey – Behind The Scenes

Truvelle Brand Shoot - Turkey

A few months ago I was in Turkey with Canadian brand Truvelle Bridal to shoot their 2018 look book! We travelled to Cappadocia in central Turkey.  After a long day travelling we started our trip with a team dinner in a local restaurant - sat on cushions on the floor we tucked into traditional Turkish Kebab cooked in clay pots and the home made wine - both where delicious and perfect!  

After an early night we were up at 4AM to do hair and makeup (oh the glamour!) as the balloons set off around 5.30AM for sunrise.  While the early start may have felt tough before hand as soon as we saw all the balloons it made it all worth it!  I cannot wait to see the shots from Kirtsty @ Blush Wedding Photography.  Until then - here's some of our behind the scenes! 


Danielle’s Indian Experience

Indian Wedding - New Dehli & Himalayas

In early Feb Danielle from the Tori Harris Pro Team packed her kit and jetted off to India for Emily's wedding.  Danielle was on hand for hair and makeup for the week long festivities. 


Danielle first met for Emily's wedding in the UK in 2016 and having gotten on so well at the time it made perfect sense for Danielle to be there for the week! 


We haven't yet seen the professional images so here's a few Danielle snapped while she was there!

Coral & Reg – Croatia.

Destination Wedding - Hair and Makeup in Croatia

Coral & Reg got married in September in Dubrovnik, Croatia.  Their wedding venue was the stunning Grand Villa Argentina.  I posted previously a few little iphone snaps from the day - you can see those here.  I was lucky enough to be a guest at this stunning wedding and a perk of having myself as a friend Coral had me on hand for touch ups all day! 

The scenery in Croatia was just stunning the venue was slightly down the coast from the old town and over looked some of the islands just of the coast of the main land with beautiful terraces overlooking the water and a walled garden where the ceremony took place.  Croatia was a gorgeous setting for a destination wedding.

Croatia – Coral and Reg’s Wedding at The Grand Villa Argentina

Dubrovnik Croatia Summer Wedding

In September I was in Croatia for the wedding of my beautiful friend Coral to her prince charming Reg.  I of course offered to do the brides hair and makeup and hair - it was such an honour to play a part in their special day!

I haven't seen any of the official wedding snaps yet but I have to say the Instagram game was pretty strong!

Makeup for abroad weddings is slightly different to the UK as we had a number of other things to think about - the heat and sun being the main two.  Coral wanted an up do which definitely lasts better in the heat and stops you getting all sweaty and stuck at the back of the neck!  For makeup I used a waterproof setting spray to ensure even in the scorching sun her makeup wouldn't budge - I put a light SPF under the makeup to help protect her skin from the sun.
