The English Wedding Blog Feature

The Boutique Bridal Cooperative

As you may well now know I recently launched The Boutique Bridal Cooperative in Fulham with hair accessories designer Victoria Millesime. As we were launching we did a styled shoot to launch the latest collection from Victoria Millesime but also to celebrate our beautiful space.  We used the light and airy space at The Boutique for the back drop and with almost all of our shelf stockists as out shoot suppliers it really is a shoot capturing the essence of The Boutique.

 

Our beautiful shoot was shot by amazing fine art photographer Claire Graham.

Coral & Reg – Croatia.

In September Coral and Reg married at the beautiful Grand Villa Argentina Hotel in Croatia. 

Tori flew to Croatia to do Coral's bridal hair and makeup for her wedding day, the sticky humid weather presented a few challenges but thankfully Coral had chosen a loose and messy up do for her bridal hair  so it stayed beautifully in place all day.  For makeup we used a mattifying primer and waterproof powder and avoided any highlighters so Coral didn't appear shiny in any of the images. 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.  The black liner with a small flick and neutral eyeshadow Coral wears daily reminds us of one of our favourite celebrity bridal makeup inspiration women - Lauren Conrad.  Of course we grew up watching The Hills so are utterly obsessed.  .

We love these stunning images, the walled garden where Coral and Reg exchanged vows was just stunning.  We can't wait to head back to Dubrovnik for another destination wedding!

Jen & Matt – Millbridge Court Surrey

Millbridge Court Wedding Hair and Makeup

We love Millbridge Court in Surrey – one of our favourtie Surrey Venues!  We were at Millbridge Court wedding hair and makeup for the lovely Jen.  From the one way glass from the bridal suite so you can see your guests arriving to the multiple mirrors so all your bridal party can have their own pamper station we LOVE that bridal suite! Jen and Matt’s 2016 wedding was no different – we had Tori on site to do the entire bridal parties hair.

Jen went for a stunning half up half down with loose curls and fresh flowers in her hair, it suited her perfectly.

Jenny and James London Wedding – Nonsuch Mansion

Nonsuch Mansion Wedding Hair and Makeup

Jenny and James got married at Nonsuch Mansion earlier in the year.  Right on the border of greater London and Surrey this venue feels like a perfect combination of the two - more country house then a central London venue but still super cool.

I arrived bright and early at Jenny's home in Wimbledon to get her and her bridesmaids ready for the big day.  We had such a fun morning and while the cats may have threatened to steal the show Jenny's stunning bridal style ensured it really was all eyes on her.  For Jenny's bridal hair we went for a beautiful contemporary twist on a classic chignon style, it was something a little different for me and different from Jenny's everyday style but it suited Jenny and her dress beautifully.  To complement her modern, loose and textured hair we went for a natural look with emphasis on the eyes for Jenny's bridal makeup.  The warm tones of brown and bronze really suited her warm skin tone.

I just adore the images taken by Simon Biffen Photography capturing the traditional busses and the overall emotion of the day beautifully.

Gillian and Richard – RAC Club Mayfair, London

RAC Club Wedding Hair and Makeup - Mayfair, London

 

December 2015 - RAC Club wedding hair and makeup in Mayfair, London for Gillian.  Her winter wedding to Richard was just stunning.  I had my wonderful assistant Erin with me who looked after the bridesmaids makeup while I looked after their hair and Gillian's hair and makeup.  I had met Gillian twice prior to the wedding day as she had completely changed her mind after her first trial! At first we had worked on a low bun look for her however when she called me and said she fancied a high ponytail instead I couldn’t help but get excited! This really was a chic London city wedding!

Their lovely photographer for the day was Kari Bellamy

 

Gillian left this lovely review on Google:

“Tori was such a pleasure to work with, before the wedding and on the day. She made me feel very comfortable doing two trials before my wedding in order to get my hair style just right. I decided to change what I wanted completely after having some time to reflect on my first trial and this was no problem at all! I really thought my hair was beautiful on the day – Tori was full of great ideas and advice on what style to choose to make sure it was right and my makeup was kept really natural, which was exactly what I was looking for. On the day, Tori and her team made us all feel totally calm. Her professional but friendly manner really helped us all to enjoy getting ready and keep the nerves at bay. She was always happy to help in any way she could, from giving advice on what to do with our flower bouquets and keeping us all to time. I could not have asked for a better experience on my wedding day morning and I thoroughly recommend Tori to any bride to be! xx”
